If this is the case then you can reconnect the cables from both the hard drive and the motherboard, or replace the cable with a new one. 

4. Perform a hard drive reset

Next, you can try performing a hard drive reset which will erase all the information stored in the computer memory and might restore functionality. Resetting your computer allows the system to clear and re-establish the software connections between the BIOS and the hardware.
