When you turn on your machine enter BIOS settings (Press F2 or in some systems its DEL key)
check whether you can find your hard disk there.

if its not there then check whether the ribbon cable is connected to the motherboard and your hard disk and also is your Hard disk getting power, that is power cable is connected to your hard disk.

If its all connected then I would suggest you to try out with some different ribbon cable and power cable.

If you have any querry just mail me or u can call me

I got problem with formating pc xp ..after a push F8 to agree licens ..format stop runin and show me that " searchin for previous microsoft windows " i need to solve this problem what i need...

Your HDD is maybe damaged and you won't be abble to install a new os on it .
Otherwise , if you really can't format it , try extracting it from your desktop and connecting it to a healthy computer .
Reinstall it back in your desktop afterwards and launch the W XP install disc .

Well, It's better if you just buy and install XP Pro from the begining. Cause xp Home is a bit of a drag and preinstalled Os's always have a history of having these problems. So just format your C: partision and just reinstall Xp Pro! It'll work much better!

hey there is an easy way around that dont worry all you have to do is shut off the pc and restart it and hold the f8 key and boot it in safe mode and from there click on control panel and click user accounts and click on the account and click remove password

Windows start problem

If you had read all the literature that microsoft sent you with Beta 7 you'd have known not to install it on a hard drive with an operating system already on it. Take the hard drive out and make it a slave drive and get some friend to put it in his system and save all your files to his hard drive, format it and re-install Windows.

to format you must need the boot disk of that windows XP professional ....
boot from that cd and then give install ... there your previous installation will be detected and then it will ask to delete the existing windows folder in that then it will show the option to convert to ntfs or to format the parition there if you select that format means it will format and install the windows Xp ...

Hardware problem

you have either got a faulty hard drive if it stops just after the initial setup files installation, or your processor or motherboard is faulty if it just stops before you even get to the file install stage, but it is a process of illimination i'm afraid.
