HARD DRIVE MISSING IN BIOS WHEN BOOTING

By aldiefenbach ·
Often When I boot my Laptop the systems hangs - in the BIOS the hard drive does not appear. Eventually if I restart enough times the system boots and the hard drive is now in the bios settings. Some times I Get a message that the media is missing - check the cable. I have an Acer Aspire 51000 160 gig eide HD - brand new - this happened with my old drive also - thats why I got a new one. System event ID 7 and 51 appear all the time - even with the new drive. Any ideas? Disabling disk caching didn't hep. Running Windows XP media Edition

Thanks

sounds bad but

You could try updating your BIOS but it sounds to me like there may be a loose connection between the system board and the hard drive, there's not a whole lot you can do about it unless you're handy with a soldering iron.
