Hi,
  I put in a ew Hard Drive on a celeron processor HP Pavilion. When I start it up it just beeps 6-7 times and nothing comes up on the screen. It doesnt even goto bios. I rechecked all the wire connections and cards and everything seems to be in place. Anything else that might be wrong with it?

check the motherboard manual there is a code regarding the beeps so you could narrow down what could cause the problem

If your manual doesn't say try the site for your BIOS:
