Floppy Drive not working

Basically, it sees it in my computer, but there is no power going to it cus the light doesn't come on. I've fiddled with all the leads, everythings secure. Bloody thing was working the other day. Is it dead?

windows 98 se

Hi, are you saying light does not come on at all? normally light only shows when drive is in use.

yeah, it don't even come on during boot up...

Fiddled with leads? I was going to suggest to check leads are firmly in place inside pc, but if you have already done that it may well be that the drive has expired/deaded. A new one is not expensive and quite easy to fit.

I bought a replacement for £2 from a second hand computer shop.
