Check any jumper pins on the mobo and all drives. I had a similar issue
a while back that I had lost one pin out of a HDD and one on the mobo.
The one on the motherboard had slid off one the the pins during a
'cleaning', too cramped sometimes.

Also, if you can get into the bios, see if it has error logging.
