I just installed a new 40GB HDD, but Windows XP refuses to detect it.

It is connected as Primary Slave, and is properly detected in the BIOS. It has not been formatted.

Will Partition Magic solev the problem ?

I dont think U require Partition Magic for that.

Make sure the Logical Disk Manager service is started & running in the background.

To do this,Just run services.msc & check it out.

Now run diskmgmt.msc & U should find your new HDD there as unpartitioned space,

Create partitions if U want or format it in FAT32 or NTFS & U should find your HDD now.
