I bought a used motherboard with cpu from a computer company, when I install the motherboard it did not work. The power was good and the front panel was connecting right. When he test the motherboard it is dead, he said that I connect the A floppy cable backward. And that cause the motherboard to short out. Is he right? Let me know. I think he sold me a bad motherboard.

Thank!!!!

Well I have connected more floppy drives backwards than I can count. It has never caused a problem. The floppy drive light remains on; that is how I know it is connected backwards.

You can however damage a board during the install either by static electricity or by physical damage. That is the problem with used parts; generally there is no warranty.
