    Tried 3 different sata connections!
  3. Well the only tip i can give you is to change sata cables for better ones.
  4. Remove the Sata cable and reset the bios
    Also check with another drive.
  5. sounds like a failing drive to me. as soon as you get a chance to access it, back up your data

    Good point
    Safest way to do this is plug the drive on other system and recover the data from there.
    Don't use the OS on your hdd
