I am trying to get my old pc working. It is using windows 98. But when i try to boot up all it does is go half way. And sais please insert a bootable disk in appropriate drive. And when I insert my floppy disk in drive a: it just acts as if it isn't trying to read the disk it just repeats itself everytime i press a button. But it ain't trying to read the disk because the light doesn't come on. and sometimes the light comes on and stays on when i turn on the computer. i went to the manufacturer and it said that the cables were reversed but when i turned them around the light doesn't come on at all and the computer sais drive A is installed. so i don't know if anyone has any ideas let me know. i've tried the microsoft web site but they didn't know either and i've tried other forums to but what they told me didn't help.
