A drive / 3.5 floppy.  Window XP, SP2 Packet installed.

Once I am done using my A: drive, and I removed floppy from the system.  Once I am done for the day and start shutting down  the computer, A: drive restarts and continues to run and at this point the system locks "Windows is shutting down", and continues to run.  At this point my only successful method to shutting down the computer is disconnecting it from its power source, which isnt good at all.  question:  its it possible to recover the drive without replacing it.
