My cpu (see sig) sometimes wont boot right, It will find my second harddrive missing(SATA HD), I have to open my case and switch the wire from SATA1 ONBOARD to the SATA2 ONBOARD one slot, just below it. Then the prblem is fixed, or sometimes ill switch around the SATA wires and it will boot fine, What causes this? Its very annoying when your girlfriend comes in at 9 am to wake me up because she cant go on myspace!

sounds like a bad cable to me. Try switching out the cables. Check to see if there is a firmware upgrade for your motherboard and / or the SATA controller.
