Your problem statement needs a lot of expansion....but you might want to try the diagnostics available at Maxtor (now Seagate).

Why mother board donot respond to hard disk maxtor n256 40 gb ?

What Motherboard are you using and what BIOS - I suppose it is an IDE drive (40Gb) On the older HDD you should check your jumper settings to identify the drive as a Primary or Secondary drive.Make sure the IDE cable is properly connected. This can be tricky sometimes as one of the pins could have bent.
Make sure the drive actually spins when you power the computer on. Hold you hand lightly on the drive, and you should feel a slight vibration. If all of this is ok then -

when you boot up, go into the BIOS and see if the BIOS picks up the drive. If this is all ok, then your HDD maybe formatted with an incompatible file system and you would need to run a FIXDISK. Or the HDD is just shot. Try with another drive to verify.
