    The bios does recognize the hardrive. I have run the hard drive test through the bios and it passes clean. I set the boot order to floppy, cd, and then HD. It saves reboots and then shuts down. Thanks for the response, any more suggestions?

It still sound like the hardrive,you can download a live cd of linix and try to see if it will run on linix,if so try reformatting the hardrive and reinstall windows,if you can get a copy of windows 98 and install that first 98 has a tendency to repair bad sectors of a harddrive,I have had many laptop drives not take xp untill I put 98 first.

Laptop switches off immediately after powering on

Try powering it on with the battery removed. I have seen some laptops where if you have a bad battery it will cause boot issues.
