Compaq Presario C302NR will not boot up.

Specs: Windows XP
Hey guys my Presario C302NR was running fine for the last 2 year with no problems. I shut it down for the night and when I turned it back on the next day it went to the windows xp logo screen then flashes a blue screen with a message momentarily then immediately goes to the load windows normally or safe mode menu. I clicked every option and it start the booting process over again and comes right back to the same screen. So I went into the bios and did a hard drive diag self test and it passes every time. So I took my Xp disk and tried to reinstall it running from the disk, I get a message saying no hard drive found. I buy a new drive put it in and I get the same result as the other and that drive also pass the self test. What give I am clueless now could that be another bad drive or am I looking at the wrong hardware.

"I took my Xp disk and tried to reinstall it running from the disk, I get a message saying no hard drive found"

Because you're not pressing F6 & loading the SATA drivers?
