Check the cables, both the power as well as the IDE, if there seems to be any fault, replace the cables.

If problem persist, then try connecting the hardware one-by-one, to find the faulty one

Could be due to PSU, I had same problem after trial and error got to know that my PSU is faulty.

Usually, its the cables. If the issue persists, clean the contact. Another thing that can be done is to use a PCI card and see if the issue persists.
