hi! so im gonna go straight to the point

i was playing games untill it "crashed" after i checked on the "my computer tab" my Disk D and E was missing. i was confused but then i went to device manager and did scanning for hardware changes and it reappeared!, after that i continued playing untill it happened again. 

i tought it had something to do with the cable, so i checked and nothing seemed wrong.

but it keeps happening again and again and againg.

is there something i can do to stop this from happening?

Use CrystalDiskInfo to check if the drive is healthy or not.

Download CrystalDiskInfo, install it and then run it.

Seems like the SATA controller on your mobo might be failing.

Something seems to cause the controller to fail/reset occasionally.

Do you have any overclock? Try to reset your BIOS to defaults (and reconfigure anything you might need for basic operation).

is it possible that a PSU play a role in this malfunctioning?

Pretty unlikely, but not impossible...
