I have an old Dell computer running XP/2 with two hard drives. The second hard drive appears to vanish. When I reboot, the second hard drive reappears, but sometimes vanishes again. Believing the drive might be defective, I bought a new hard drive, but the problem persists. Should I try replacing the battery? Is the BIOS defective? If so, what can I do? What else can I try to fix this problem?
