Have you recently added the new hard drive? iIf so is it on the same line as another IDE device? Have you set the jumper on the drive to make it a slave drive? The jumper is normally a little shorting thing (usually looking like a bit of black, blue, or red plastic about 1mm by 2mm and when in place is among by a double row of pins - next to where you plug the IDE cable into).
