    Quite possibly some controller card or cable is not quite securely
    attached (connectors seated).

    If it's working now don't worry about it, but if it happend again
    then carefully unplug every connector and expansion card and reseat
    it firmly -- one at a time, obviously. (And with power off and the
    computer unplugged, also obviously. :-)
