Hello everybody! I would like to ask for some help regarding a problem I have recently encountered on my computer.

Now the problem:
After several failed attempts at booting Win7 I realized that the computer wasn't seeing my HDDs. Upon entering the BIOS setup I noticed a strange problem. In the "MAIN" screen of the bios setup, there are supposed to be 6 SATA ports shown. I had nothing, they weren't just not detected, they simply weren't there. Even there is HDD option in boot priorities.
I don't really know what to do anymore and there's quite a bit of information I would rather not loose on those drives.
Any help would be appreciated, if there is any useful information I may not have mentioned, please ask me for it.

OK, what motherboard is it? What version of bios is it? i'd look in the main tab under ide config. it may be disabled or raid enabled. You may have to say it is ide or not.

I am sorry, but there are way too many combinations with sockets, chipsets. Do you know Intel or AMD? When you go into bios, what does it say?
