Hey Jen; two questions. 1- does the light on your floppy drive stay on all the time?
2- I'm assuming you know how to access your bios. If not, restart & hit delete. In standard cmos features, does it show a drive A. If it does, then most likely you have your floppy cable crossed, or upside down. Hope this helps Judy

Nope the lights not on, I've tried taking it out and redoing it on the system but it doesn't like it, it finds it and says its finding the software for the new hardware and the floppy shows in the hardware list but it doesn't go any further than that!

Sounds like your floppy has flopped. You might want to consider getting a new one before you reformat.
