Answers :

Only a HDD with a properly installed OS, a valid boot sector and an active partition will 'Boot'

Did\015\012it ever work? Are you sure the POWER is there. Are you sure the cables\015\012are on right and the HDD is identified in the BIOS of the PC? Are you\015\012sure the drive jumpers are correct? Check all of these.

If this\015\012is a brand new HDD the first thing you must do is Partition the HDD,\015\012and if the HDD will be your BOOT drive, you'll also need to make the\015\012partition 'active. Then, in either case you'll have to format it. Use\015\012the FDISK utility and then the FORMAT command under DOS or type\015\012dskmgmt.msc within Windows (Using the Start, Run box) to do this\015\012procedure.

If it is NOT a new HDD, these procedures will wipe your data so be careful.

If\015\012it did work and doesn't anymore.. listen to the PC when you apply\015\012power. Does the HDD spinup, click a bit and get quiet, or do you hear\015\012it repeatedly spinning up, clicking constantly, starting and stopping??\015\012These signs are not good and usually mean the drive controller board is\015\012hosed. There is a 50% chance of fixing this problem with an EXACT No.\015\012replacement controller board..

If it does spin up, clicks a bit\015\012and stops making noises, we can assume is is reaching proper velocity\015\012and the heads are finding 'home'. (Good!)

The next thing to look\015\012at is your BOOT sequence which YOU can change in the BIOS. Watch the\015\012screen when the machine is booting (or trying to) and the POST will\015\012usually display a 'Press F2 or F10 or F12 or DEL to enter BIOS " message

Most Older PC boot from Floppy, then CD, then HDD... Newer go from CDROM to HDD (no floppy)
If\015\012there is a floppy disk in the A: drive, it will hang forever looking at\015\012it trying to boot. Pop it out and try again. In some cases, the same\015\012scenerio is possible with a CD in the CDROM - eject it.

If the HDD 'tries' and you get an error onscreen, I can help further knowing WHAT that error is ;-)

Without\015\012that knowledge, I'll guess that the boot sector is corrupt- one or more\015\012of the HIDDEN or SYSTEM files was changed or deleted by virus/trojan,\015\012program, hacker or user and these will have to be put back (manually or\015\012using O/S CDROM repair option) before it will ever work as a boot disk\015\012again.

Complex, eh?

If the HDD will at least spinup and\015\012find 'home' (go ready) With the proper software tools, it might be\015\012possible to rescue, and get all the data off too even if it looks\015\012'dead'. In some cases it is as simple as editing the Boot.ini file or\015\012replacing missing ones.

These files are NEEDED for a Windows system to boot:
Boot ini should look like this for a 1 HDD system:

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\\Windows="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

What else can you tell me?

1.\015\012Possibly a virus/trojan hosed the boot sector: can be fixed with the\015\012CDROM "Repair' option but NOT the first one you see. Choose Install,\015\012Press F8, let windows FIND your Windows install and THEN choose REPAIR.\015\012It will take 30-40 Min. Be sure when it asks for Account, you type one\015\012that already is NOT on the PC b/c it will wipe over it. Ex: If you were\015\012'Administrator' before it broke, type "Admin" for the repair. You can\015\012access all you your \\User\\Administrator files (old stuff) later, or\015\012move them to \\User\\Admin.

2. Possibly a virus/trojan made the\015\012boot partition 'inactive' - DL, burn and use BART to Boot your PC from\015\012CDROM and then run dskmgmt.msc to fix.

3. Possibly a\015\012virus/trojan modified the Boot.ini file - Edit 'default' line to look\015\012liike this: default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\\Windows
\015\012[operating systems]

Good luck!
