    On bootup Windows ME reconfigures, if necessary, its attached disk drives.

    I have a Presario 5008US with CD and CD-R drives. At apparently random
    intervals my system boot reconfigures to either recognize or not recognize
    the drives. When recognized the work fine, otherwise the system doesn't
    know they are there. I haven't opened up the machine to check the cable,
    but movement of the case is irrelevany.

    Can this be something other than a loose cable?

  2. Sounds like a dieing hard drive. I would suggest backing up your data and
    purchasing a new hard drive.
