My computer one day suddenly appear a message when it startup "Floppy disk error (40)". In theory it is because the cable losen but this is not the case. I try to push the cable in harder, change a new cable, put in the other way round still no hope. The floppy drive light is on once the computer is power up, is there any way which I can do to fix this problem.

Thanks for the help!

It appears that you have a bad floppy drive or controller. If you can test the floppy drive in another pc do this. You will be able to find out if the drive or the controller is broken.

If the drive is broken, you will need to replace it. If it is the controller, you can purchase another folppy controller.
