Default Floppy drive not working!!!

Yea, no power to it at all. The green light doesnt even come on to tell me something is in there. System doesnt even recognize it. Not a MAJOR issue or nothing but it is bugging me that it isnt working.

Go into your CMOS. Does your mobo recognize the floppy drives existence? Probably just a failed drive. They are cheap. buy a new new one. Use the old one for a clay pidgeon!!!
