I just replaced the hard drive on my laptop, and (believe it or not) the new hard drive was a bit less wider then the old one, and the connector wouldnt touch the connecter on the computer because the drive side that was thinner was pressed against and wouldnt connect, so I folded up a piece of paper and stuck it in between the hard drive and the connecter, workes fine now. Maybe something like this happened to yours.
Otherwise, my bet's on what acklan said, I used to have a computer that the battery was dead on so everytime you used it you would have to go into the bios and tell it there was a hard drive there, because with the battery dead it didnt remember the drive was there.
In fact, try going into the bios and making sure that there is a hard drive listed, that may be all there is wrong, is the batterys dead.
