Question about Computers & Internet
The problem sounds like you either lost the IDE channels on the MOBO or the chipset was updated with corrupt files.
run everest home and see if there are current updates for the northbridge chipset. if you have 2 ide channels on the board switch the primary and secondary ribbons and see if the hard drives are there. if your cdrom's are ide and after switching ribbon cables they disappear and the hard drives reappear your mobo lost an ide channel, you would need to replace the board.
