Internal HDD is not detected in Dell Inspiron 15 5577

The internal HDD suddenly stops being detected in my system after an pop up from application named Intel Rapid Storage Technology comes up saying "SATA available disk:Removed." 

My laptop also has an internal SSD, so the OS still runs, while the internal HDD stops working. This issue has been repeated multiple times, can someone provide me with a solution to avoid this?

Have you checked the connection of the HDD with the motherboard?

If the ill-connection is the problem, then that error is displayed.

Kindly check the connection.

Try checking the SATA cable or that it is connected at all.
