    Internal hard drive disconnecting entirely during use.


    My internal hard drive is completely disconnecting from the motherboard while i am using my computer and it causes most of windows processes to go into not responding to the point of me having to use commands to restart my computer as even task manager immediately goes not responding. I have tried using a different sata port and cable and i have even run the commands to repair problems with windows and the check drive command and nothing has changed the computer will work for a few hours of use before crashing whatever im doing and going through the same symptoms. Even restarting the pc or shutting down and turning back on results in a very slow boot time and the hard drive does not read on the computer. I am at a loss because it doesn't seem to be the hard drive as it works fine until the disconnect happens and i have tried other ports and cables. and all of my operating system should be on my ssd which still works whenever these symptoms show up so im not sure why windows outright bugs out.

    Disconnect internal hard drive externally


    This can be done by going into the BIOS and disabling the SATA ports the drives are on. This eliminates the need to physically remove them. Have done it a few times without issue. Just remember to re-enable the ports once done Internal hard drive disconnecting entirely during use. :)

    BTW all my drives are SSD as well (4 total).

    Good luck.

    Edit: HippsieGypsie's suggestion works too. And is easier than my BIOS method.

    Being anal about backups and having issue after issue with Win 10, I need a way to physically disconnect/reconnect an internal backup hard drive with out cracking open the case and unplugging it. All of my hard drives are ssd.

    That would require some serious psychokinetic skill.
