Default Notebook Hard Drive

I replaced the hard drive in a notebook I just got and when I go to install windows, it tells me that Setup did not find any hard disks installed. Then, in the BIOS I try a HDD Self-test and it tells me No IDE Device. I've tried the jumper on all 3 positions, and neither have worked. Any ideas? It's a Compaq Presario R3000.
