I looks like the drive fails it's internal data communications tests when you attach the "DATA" cable.

Solution? Replace the drive.

Good luck

Hi ASIF,

What do you mean when you say the drive starts running? You hear it spinning? You should connect the drive with both cables, power supply and data cable. Try booting. If you can't, check if the drive is listed in BIOS. If it is not, switch SATA ports. If there is no change, unfortunately, there is a chance that the drive has failed. I would recommend you to check it on another PC and, if you have warranty, call the distributor.

Hope this helps
