Quit reconizing the floppy


i have an older computer i built and used for couple of years.it has a 1.3 gig duron processer

it quit recognizing the floppy.i changed floppys and it didn't work.i changed mother boards.it has a fic mainboard (fusion extreme) in it.512 megs of ram,cd rom,cd burner,built in video and a 30 gig hard drive.i also bought a new 300 watt power supply.it still won't detect the floppy.the cd roms start spinning when you put a disk in them and stop.once in a while you can do a search (d:) and view the contents but most of the time that won't work.why,all of the sudden did everything that used to work so well just go south on me?do you know what i can do to fix the problems?

I think your old floppy drive went bad, and you didn't set the jumpers on the new hard drive

When you changed the motherboard did you set the correct jumpers and see about the cmos chipset and stuff like that all of these things have to be considered when you built this system befor consider them again
