Bios only recognizes SATA HDD after battery dies. Whats Hap

Specs: Windows 10
I have an asusX555l that has worked fine for a year. I turned it on last week and it went right into bios and it did not show the HDD. Opened up the laptop and checked/ reset all connections to the hard drive and bios still did not find the hard drive.
A some point I left the bios setup on and walked away when I came back the battery had died. The next day I plugged it in and it booted right into windows. I ran a hard drive test and everything was good.
Next time I restarted it went back into bios no HDD showing up.

Drained the battery let it sit for a day and again got back into windows. Reboot no HDD.

Is this just a coincidence? Any suggestions to fix this?

Sounds like Legacy Mode vs UEFI Mode issue. Find the BIOS setting & make sure it's set to UEFI.

"went back into bios no HDD showing up"
What is it showing on the boot page?

Check your cmos battery.

In any cases for restore deleted data and back up device we need to use recovery app. On last week my pc was infected by virus and I lost important data. My colleague suggested me to check disc drill and recover deleted data. I checked here followed the instructions and restored lost data. And in the end I reinstalled the OS.
