Greetings Dr. Kalpa,
This is most often a hardware error than a software issue.
Ideally this is best left to the experts - because it involves checking the cables of the IDE & SATA drive as well as making some tweaks in the BIOS.
In case you are up for the task - have a look at this post by Microsoft.
