new hard drive

HP Recommended
HP 6500

I have a hp 6500 that the hard drive crashed. I bought a new hard drive just like the old one but when I try to get it to read the windows install disk it beeps and a red light comes on. that it what it did when it crashed but it told me it crashed. So what do i need to get this thing to even read the os disc. it has no bios or anything coming up.

>  No BIOS or anything coming up.

 

First attempt:

 

Disconnect the AC power and the "data" cable from the new disk-drive.

Reboot, to see if anything comes up when the disk-drive is not present.
