very poor title and not likely to get much response, that said with the non working hdd have you checked device manager for errors?

A little more help with your query please?
Assuming that you have changed the HD to a new one and installed XP in that same computer?
You have exchanged the HD for one which already had XP installed on it?
If this was a HD which was installed on another (different) computer there is little chance it will work because all the basic drivers apply to a different machine.

For anyone who might have a similar problem can you say why it is ticked as resolved?
