It could well do with being tested as the drive could be faulty, this is what is needed to be done first, as it will prove either that the drive has died or it is to do with XP drivers or the motherboard.

Check the data cable by replacement.

And if you know the make/model of your motherboard, try installing the latest drivers for it, i.e. the IDE drivers and system drivers etc.

You could also try changing the IDE port that its connected to.
