Hard Drive Read Failure

\015 Working with a Dell C610. On start-up Bios recogizes the 20GB hard drive. But when the system trys to start is says hard disk error. Used a new hard drive and ran Fdisk but it can't find the hard drive. If I put the Windows disc in to re-install windows. it says it can't write to the drive. Is there something about a dell i am missing?\015

Answers :

No--I would say that the hard drive has gone bad on you.
The BIOS can see a hard drive, but it can't tell if it's any good.
If it's defective, well--you see what happens!
