Updating all the drivers is a tough task. You could use any of the 3rd party software products available online to help with the same. I usually use the option for an automatic update from Intel’s download center.

Solution 3] Reconnect the hard disk cables to the motherboard

While this is something only an expert with hardware should do, this has been among the most helpful of steps in resolving the issue.

Make sure the connections are tight and that there is no dust on the base of the connectors.

Solution 4] Upgrade the BiOS

The issue could also be caused by an outdated BiOS. You could download the BiOS from the manufacturer’s website and install it. Make sure that the make and model of the system is correct.

To upgrade BIOS , just google your computer / laptop model number and BIOS in google and download and click to run the BIOS.
