make sure the power/data wires are pushed in all the way...if u've tried all this i'd just suggest getting another one for $10...mine went out recently so i took one off a spare 386 i had lying around.
P.S:WELCOME TO THE FORUMS
Also make sure your floppy cable didn't get twisted around the other way. That error is almost always due to the cable being put on backwards.
