Alienware M17 - not recognizing one hard-drive intermittently.


I own an Alienware M17 with a 128 GB msata SSD ( which is the OS drive) + 2 500-gb HDD.

Intermittently, the system refuses to recognize one of the 500 GB Hard drive ( it is a WDC 5000 model).

If I reboot the machine, it will start 'seeing' the HDD again.

I ran the PSA and it detected no issues. Same thing with the dell diagnostics also.

Is anyone having the same problem ?
