Have you gone inside the pc to install some new ram or upgrade your video card? If so then it is possible that a cable of power connector is lose. If not then it is possible that the hard disk controller is going on the system.

Thanks for the reply tincan.I have connected another
hard disk on the same machine and I have had no problem.
Possibly looks like hard disk failure!.Is there any absolute way to confirm this is the case

A Hard drive is the hardware that brakes down the most. From what you described, I would say it is toast. Unless you don't mind losing your data! :-)
