SATA DRIVE IS NOT RECOGNIZED

Hi all,

My computer is now unresponsive.  A message appears and it says SATA DRIVE NOT RECOGNIZED.  It is requiring a reboot, but after rebooting the system, same problem appears.  The SATA drive is unrecognized.  The screen turned black, although I can still see the toolbars. All programs installed and personal files are missing.  I tried to run on SAFE MODE and tried to restore the computer on a previous date, but it is not working.  I checked BIOS and SATA is enabled.  What can I do to make the drive recognizable or how can I make my computer run normal mode again?  

Thanks.

This problem is usually occurs when a wrong PC is shut down or due some misconception of software.

Your SATA device is shown in the BIOS means it is working properly but the option you are saying that is coming is (The SATA drive is unrecognized. & It is requiring a reboot, but after rebooting the system) it means that you need to reinstall your windows , so there is no any cure about this error as you are seeing your SATA drive in BIOS , so I think you should install a new copy of windows you want to use and then your problem will be solved.

I would advice that you check whether your computer is infected with some viruses. Try rebooting the computer without the SATA drive and see whether it gets back to normal, then try and insert the SATA drive while your computer is up and running. If the issues is with the SATA drive, try changing the connector that you are using on the SATA, also try and connect the SATA drive externally using some form of converted that lets you connect the drive through USB ports of your computer and scan for viruses, also try and do a surface scan on the disk before you conclude that its faulty.

If you see this message on your computer and the system is halted or frozen, the problem is with your hard drive. The cable might be loose. This requires checking the cables connected to your hard drive. Shut down your computer and open the CPU case. Look for your SATA hard drive then disconnect and reconnect both the ribbon cable and the power supply cable connected to the drive.

Next, start your computer then go to the BIOS. Go to the hard drive detection section then detect your hard drive. If your drive is detected properly, restart your computer and boot into Windows then see if it works. If the problem continues, you probably need to install a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows just like what the first post said.

You can also try using the Windows File Checker utility or the SFC application built-in to Microsoft Windows but since your hard drive keeps on disconnecting and halting the system, the utility might not finish whatever it is doing.
