Hard Drive replacement issue

Text:

Replaced the HD and all I get is a flashing folder with a question mark. Have made sure all connections are right and are tight. Have tried recovery mode, safe mode: nothing new. Have tried starting with original install disc at start up, then with option key. Tried with a Snow Leopard install disc, Same thing. Reset PRAM/SMC...no change...read any number of mac forum and your forum q/a's.......All to no avail.

Any ideas?
