You said you replaced the hard drive. Did you replace it with a new drive or not?
If the drive is brand new, or hasn't been partitioned etc, you will need to partition & format it first, then install Windows back on it.
The first thing to check however, is that the drive is being recognised correctly in the bios. To do this, power on the system & press the CTRL-ALT-ENTER keys when prompted. You should see the hard drive listed somewhere in there. Make sure that the drive listed matches the drive you've installed in the system (e.g reports the right size etc).
Check this first & let me know what happens before we go any further.
