Windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, you should load Win 7.

connect your hard drive to other computer and then have it clean by scanning with antivirus. and then copy the important files on it to the working computer. after copying the files thats the time to return back the original hardrive to the dell dimension and then reformat and reinstall the system again again. please use original operating from dell or what ever is applicable.

This is a must watch before doing an Aspire One recovery.
You'll need an XP Home system disc (or an Aspire One recovery disc) and, well, hopefully the video is more explanatory...

When in doubt do without, that is remove the new hard drive cable and power, remove the DVD drive and try loading booting the XP from just this CD device. Enter the BIOS and check if the system sees the device. If it's not found in the BIOS then you'll never boot anything. Address it as the Primary device on the cable (I don't use CS) and see if the BIOS sees it.
If you get CD device seen in the BIOS then try to boot the CD in it. If it boots then power off and connect up your 40gb drive (optioned as Primary) on the other cable. Now power on as check the BIOS for the drive and the DVD device. If both are seen then boot the cd and try to load XP. After it's up and running install the other CD device as a Slave on one of the cables.

Well, let's see--you have a "clean" disk.
Does the computer bios see the correct size of the disk?
If it's a SATA, have you correctly described the hard drive parameters (in the DELL cmos setup. You may have inadvertently told it to set up as RAID or something.
Next, if you are certain it's set up correctly, it should start from the CD with the option of repairing from the recovery console or install. Choose install. Hit the F8 to accept the license and you should see it looking for a previous install. You can then repair (in some cases) or just do a fresh install. That SHOULD (operative word) work.
Given what you have said, I would opt to check the hard drive parameters in CMOS.
