Paulo, a slightly fuller explanation might be useful here.

Do you mean that the physical 'floppy disk drive' is not fitted to your
computer (been removed)?

In which case you will need to buy a new one from your local computer store.

Or do you mean that you can't see that A: drive in Windows Explorer?

Or do you mean that floppy disks are not being recognised in the A: drive?

OK, from this distance, it seems like the drive is either faulty and needs
replacing, (replacements are quite inexpensive) or the cables within the PC
may have become disconnected.

As you are novice, you may wish to consider taking it to your local computer
shop to get it repaired. On the other hand, if you would like to try fix it
yourself, come back here and I'm sure that someone will try to help you
further
