My internal hard drive does not get detected sometimes. I had this same problem a few months back. Upon getting it repaired by computer technician, I was told the issue was in the hard drive cover which connects the SSD to the PC. The issue got fixed at a cost of $100. I am not sure what that meant but the same issue has returned.

I don't believe I have to replace my solid state drive. Can anyone offer me any solutions?
