Yup, got one for you.  Follow these steps carefully and your problem 
will be solved.

1)  Gently open computer case.  Be sure to save all screws / plastic 
2)  Disconnect power from floppy drive.
3)  Disconnect ribbon cable from floppy drive.
4)  unscrew, and remove floppy drive from case.
5)  Put floppy drive 10 yards down range from current position.
6)  Cock hammer, aim, pull trigger, make .44 go boom and dispatch floppy 
drive from further existence. 

Sorry, not trying to be a smart arse here, but floppies?  Really?
