2st. No post beeps, No bios screen.
3rd. Tried different ports. no luck
4th. Tried other HDD, all okay computer stable.
5th. Tried plugging in HDD after XP has loaded and yet again just beeps and spins. Nothing..! HDD less than a one year old.

Is the HDD under warranty ?
The beeps are from the PC speaker, it's an error code. Can you setup the troublesome Samsung 250G Sata drive as a slave on Primary IDE channel so you can access in once it has booted ?
If the error beeps continue after turning off the PC, carefully install the Slave drive jumpers on the HDD, and connecting the Power, Ribbon data cable (red line is pin one (1)), then I'd say you have a dead Drive. I must stress to not work with the Hardware components when the PC is turned on.
