I have not sent any jumpers on the hard drive (believe it is master if unjumpered) and the laptop will not boot to BIOS with the hard drive in to check it's state.
Would appreciate any ideas on how to get this working. Thanks

just sounds like a mismatch with the optical drive ; presume this is compaq branded

often these come with a spare jumper stuck on in a non working position ; if you don't have one you will have to find one !
there should be a diagram somewhere showing which pins you have to bridge to get the other settings , if you can't find that try the IBM site and search jumpers ; if not there , try hitachi , IBM drives are usually rebranded hitachi's
