Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE ,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
Make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd \ cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty.
Computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.
Even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems
Motherboard and a Hard Drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail.
Check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

Check your BIOS. There's a setting there to change the Drive controller which allows the SATA drive to be recognized. I believe when I did it I had to change the RAID setting (even though I wasn't using RAID).

this is due to virus or malware. it is possible that it is present in hard disk. whenever you tries to open the file, at that time the virus get activated and creats error.........for this you need to install the latest updated antivirus. but some antivirus are worthless. so i recommend you to use quickheal antivirus and scan the hard disk

Windows XP does not have built in SATA drivers. You will need to download the XP drivers from Western Digital's website and install before the computer will allow you to format and use your new drive. Hope this helps.

either an issue with the hard disk, or with your system. Make sure the hard disk has power on it and if you can, it would help to test it on another computer to confirm if it works. If you have ruled out the possibility that it is the hard disk, next is review if the hard disk has system requirements you need to meet. If the requirements are met by your XP SP2 machine, you may try updating the computer's system software/chipset drivers and a BIOS update may also be necessary.
