Answers :

If you have removed the drive from the Motherboard, then try re-seating the hard drive. (Please note that Sony does not recommend the end-user doing any hard drive upgrade/replacement). If the drive is not spinning up, you may have an electrical contacts problem where the drive pins engage the connector on Motherboard. In which case, you may try sliding it in part-way and if it boots up, you can re-do the backets (drill new holes) to attach it to the connector in the new position. Otherwise, short of replacing the connector (difficult due to double sided PCB), you may need to replace the Motherboard.
It could be that

    \015\012
  • you got a virus that corrupted your hard disk or MBR (Master Boot Record)
  • \015\012
  • your hard drive is dead
  • \015\012
  • or your hard drive is corrupted
\015\012Try booting from a system disk (Windows XP CD, recovery CD or system floppy) and let me know what happens.
