This is a query about a NEC Versa Note laptop. It is 4 years old with lots of use and runs Windows 2000 and Linux. Recently got a message that it could not find its hard drive. The drive was replaced and it worked for a week or two and then the same
message. This time the hard drive was taken out and checked on another machine and the drive was fine.

The question is what is the likely cause of this problem and how should I remedy it?

No, the cable was not checked. When the new drive was added and it fixed the problem the cable as a source of the problem was dismisssed. Now that the new drive is no longer recognized, perhaps the cable (and/or connector) should be checked.
