While using the computer, I had got a "KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR". The disk had failed to respond when it was trying to make a minidump. Now, the HDD has gone missing. It has disappeared from the BIOS. I'll try wiggling the sata data cables around, which is going to be a huge pita since the computer is a small from-factor. Worst case scenario would be the hdd is so screwed up that i'm unable to salvage any data from it. Any suggestions of what to do?

Pull the hard drive and place it in a USB external enclosure or USB adapter. If it still does not get detected then the only way to get your data back would using a professional data recovery service.

False alarm, the sata data cable came loose.
