Check the device manager when it is connected and look for indications that something is wrong with the device also check the event viewer log in the system folder for any errors related to the issue and let us know.

Your motherboard MUST have a SATA 3.0 port. It is usually blue or look closely on the motherboard to see where the 3.0 port is located. If your motherboard doesn't have a 3.0 port your hard drive won't be any faster than a normal hard drive.

Sounds like maybe the hard drive is starting to fail (very common in a 15 yr. old laptop). See/get a new one here:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=emachine+8230+power+supply&LH_PrefLoc=1&_sop=15&_armrs=1&_dmd=1&LH_BIN=1&_osacat=0&_ipg=100&_from=R40&_trksid=p2045573.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.XHitachi+DK23EA-30.TRS0&_nkw=Hitachi+DK23EA-30&_sacat=0

You should try and locate the support page for your Dell at Dell.com, because if you try to reinstall XP on a new hard drive, most likely many drivers will be missing, and you would have to get them from the Dell support page.

But installing XP in 2018 would leave you without hundreds of updates, as Microsoft has not supported XP since April 2014. They have not supported Vista since April 2017. So I would recommend upgrading to at least Windows 7, as Microsoft will probably support it until 2020.

I just installed Windows 7 on an old HP Celeron (Celeron processor is like one notch better than a Pentium 4). It works pretty well - turned off all the Win7 Aero junk to make it run a little faster. I can even watch YouTube on it and stuff! lol.

Good luck.

Running under the assumption that the CD is actually working, have you checked the BIOS settings to indicate that you want the CD to be the first boot device?

Alternatively, some if not most systems will accept an F12 during boot up to query the user where to boot from.

you have to backup the mbr before edit. also try use command Fdisk /mbr command to repair mbr.
also pls try to use bootable recovery disk like hiran boot disk, you can use hbcd menu and disk tools and choose disk genius or data recovery

Creo que ese laptop no supporta SATA para XP, y se puede tratar hacer lo con un cambio en BIOS.

Prende el laptop, y empuja "F2" inmediatamente cuando aparece el Dell logo. En el setup menu en BIOS empuja "SATA native mode" para tenerlo apagado.

Inserta el Windows XP CD en el CD ROM drive, y apagar y apagar el lapto.

Does that model have the Kensington lock slot? 500GB does, maybe you need to physically unlock it?

Tip

Hitachi LifeStudio 250GB Drive with Windows 7 Pro


In Windows 7 Pro: Before starting, make sure you are connected to the internet as Windows 7 might have to find the driver(s) online. Plug in to a USB 2.0 or 1.0 port (3.0 won't work) and let Windows find the drivers. Two autoplay windows will pop up. Close the larger autoplay window with the heading LIFESTUDIO. In the other smaller autoplay window, click on Start LifeStudio Now. A window will open up, click on Install LifeStudio. Follow the directions. You are ready.
