Faulty DATA cable and sudden computer restarting

Hi,

I have ordinary IDE hard drive WD 80 GB (Not SATA) connected by ATA data cable some times the computer is suddenly restarted and then the hard drive is defined by the boot screen of the computer with weired text such as _DK_)))))))80 and then windows could not be able to starting.

After I changed the cable it boots successfully after performing disk scan on C partition.

My question is: It is possible, if the data cable is faulty to cause such restarting or I have to think about worth things about the mother board?

Probably was the cable, or just poor connection. Time will tell if it's something else, but IDE cables are poor at the best of times. I've seen a fair few go bad.

After many years, I received a congratulation email for my birthday from this forum and I remembered this topic and I'd like to add my experience that happened after some short period of time after my posting this topic:

After about 4 months I have lost my hard drive. It develop a booting errors and media is lost. So the conclusion when something like this happened you should get ready to back up the important data for any sudden data lost.
