If the BIOS tells you to check cables, it means you probably have a broken connector or solder joint somewhere: there is enough continuity through the break for the computer to tell something is connected but the connection is not good enough for normal operation. To determine if it is the laptop or HDD that has the broken connection, you may need to either use an external adapter to see if the HDD works on a different computer or use a known-good drive in your laptop to see if it still complains with that.

You did not really say what the issue is. If you had the error about check cable before, what is going on NOW?

And when you get drive errors like that, you want to get a new hard drive, not wait till it's totally dead before worrying about it.
