Actually there is no need to touch anything in hardware please do not touch ur hardware without any reason i know what eactly is the solution is now follow this :

Problem : When Windows XP was made there was no concept of SATA drives now ur drive is SATA and ur installation disc does not contain drivers for ur Hard disk thats why it is unable to find ur hard disk as it doesnt recognize it u need sata raid drivers on ur windows inst cd

Solution:

this specific model Aspire 4710 was shipped with vista OS and drivers now u are downgrading it to XP it depends on the installation disc if it is new one like SP3 included then u would have never faced this issue in ur case u should get a RAID driver from www.intel.com and then include them in ur copy of windows XP cd to load them at the startup of installation , so u need them in the first place to carry out installation, u have to do some job here download RAID DRIVERS from www.intel.com select ur board and chipset Mobile Intel® 945GM Express download SATA RAID DRIVERS and then download nlite a software used to integrate these drivers to ur inst disk , u can also include SP3 thru this software in ur current win xp cd

http://www.nliteos.com/

just download sata drivers from intel and nlite from the link and install the software integrate these drivers and burn ur cd incl them and then install normally as u were installing them earlier now it will recognize ur drive simple for more info how to do check this out

Hi,
this can happen when your hard drive is not recognized by the system bios, which can be due to two reasons either its disabled in the bios or the drive is loose.crashed

so first enter the system bios by tapping the F2 key at the acer logo and then in the system bios check if the drive is showing if its not showing try to detect it.

if still you are unable to detect the drive then if yoy have ever taken out your hard drive or you are comfortable with the latop hard ware you should take out the drive and put it back in which is called reseating of the drive, so if there is some problem due to loose connection the problem will be resolved and then again you can try setecting the drive in bios,

some cautions you should take if you are oping your laptop
1) take out battery and ac adapter
2) press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to release any static that may harm your system

further queries are welcome
if you think my solutions was helpfull please do rate me
