Hey computer geeks!!

I have an issue with my desktop (I use it as a server)

one of my hard drives keep disconnecting everytime I try to access it from windows.
Seagate 320GIG sata drive. Running windows xp pro. all updates (running sp3 beta).

Computer Specs:
-- Desktop
-- Windows XP Pro SP3
-- Intel Dual core e6600 ? 1.8ghz socket 775
-- 2 GIG RAM (ddr2 667mhz)
-- 80 GIG drive sata (system drive)
-- 500 GIG drive maxtor sata drive
-- 320 GIG seagate drive sata (problem drive)

No other drives are having issues.... is it the hard drive or the motherboard?

Wife is getting on me to get this issue resolved, and kept telling her I am not sure whats going on.

Any error messages?

Check Event Viewer for clues?

Are all three drives connected directly to motherboard?

Check the connections for secure fit/connection?

I guess that I don't know what you mean when you say that a hard drive..."disconnects." Exactly what happens?
