Hey guys, I tried searching, but found nothing.

I just moved my computer into a new case. Now when I boot up it says floppy drive(s) failure 40. I can boot normally anyways and run just fine. THE GREEN LIGHT WONT TURN OFF. Any suggestions? I already checked the cables and they are plugged in properly, i'll double check just incase.

Hi, Yes, this usually means the cable is on backwards- pin1 red edge of floppy cable goes to pin1 of floppy's motherboard connector....and, the twisted end of floppy cable goes into the drive.
