You could try unplugging the ATA or SATA cable from them one at a time and firing up and see if one is the issue. Other wise I would need more info.

thatís a start....
Something to try go to
start menu->setting->system->hardware tab->device manger
you should see a tree for "disk drives" and one for "DVD/CDROM Drives"
Are there any "!" or red "x" under either or anywhere in their? If so double click on the item and copy/paste the info from the "device status" box and leave a post here with it. If itís a slow death I would still be fingering the mother board.
A cheap fix would be to buy a controller card. But with my experience when one goes something is to follow. So replacing the motherboard may fix the issue. But first I would contact your motherboard maker (ASUS, ABIT, GIGABYTE, ect). Send them atleast an email and see what they have to say. It may be a common issue. In that case getting it fixed may be a download away. It's possible that itís still a BIOS setting. But until a tech can take a peek itís really hard to say. I hate to say it but if your not familiar with the settings or really tearing into it I would recommend a tech take a look. Could be something simple but my moneys on a bad mother board.
Sorry I canít be more help. Maybe someone else might have some ideas.
