    @Mandar5, How old is your HD? Just check whether your HD is being detected by the BIOS.

    Well try taking out the CMOS Battery and start or try putting the ram in another slot.

    It need not be your hdd only that is the cause of the problem. If you are getting any beeps from your system(if your system speaker is up) while boot up then it means either your ram needs to be readjusted (plug it out and then in again). If you have a graphics card then check that one too, 'cos it too creates problem of that sort although the beep count is different. The main reason why I don't suspect a prob with your hdd is that the display itself doesn't come up .. now if your hdd was the problem, the display shoudn't be affected!!!!

    i think if u dont know much abt self servicing then u should take the PC to a computer dealer.. they will check out the whole thing and tell u what part has gone bad. i think most prob it is ur mobo.

    Try Removing the data cable of your HDD and then start your Computer.
    then turn it off
    then plug the data cable of the HDD Again
