hi when you wrote you got floppy out what did you use, because it sounds as if you have damaged the system inside, have you taken both sides of your tower off, if not this is how you do it. having removed both sides of tower you will see some little screws holding it in take them out keeping them ready to reuse, remove the face from front of the tower by unclipping it very gently, you won't be able to put it far because of wires attached, now remove ribbon attatched to back of floppy, and the main power lead going to it, just pull both they should come off.
Now over here youyou can purchase for £8.00 which is very reasonable.
putting it back in is reverse of removal.
Keep us posted how you get on.
Now installed Microsoft Security Essencials on my Tower with Windows Home Premium 32bit and Toshiba Satellite Pro Laptop with Windows Home Premium 64bit
