BIOS won't detect HDD's

My computer has been working perfectly for about a year now, but a week ago it stopped detecting my ssd and 2 hdds. I tried replacing all the cables and even updated my bios, but it didn't work so I ordered a new motherboard. The new motherboard has the same exact problem. It doesn't seem to be the psu since it seems to power everything else perfectly fine. The only thing I can think of is that the drives are bad, but I just have a hard time believing that all 3 drives died at once, and I really have no way of testing them on another computer. Is there anything else that could I could do to get the bios to detect the drives?

    are the hard drives spinning up as normal when powered on?

    I just tested the 2 hdds and they do spin up when I have the computer on.
  4. What happened right around before they stopped working?

    Were any applications installed? New drivers? Windows update?
