I returned from vacation and my desktop pc had blue screened. When i power cycled the pc it no longer recognizes any of my sata drives (HDD or dvd drive). I tried the hdd in another PC and it recognized the drive without a problem. I then took the PSU from the other PC and installed it in the one I was having issues with, this did not solve my problem. I am leaning towards this being a problem w/ the sata ports on my motherboard, (Biostar GF8200 m2+). The settings in the bios looked correct but I was hoping to get a few thoughts and ideas before I break down and replace my old motherboard. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you.

If the SATA controller is enabled in BIOS then you are right your ports stopped working.
Sadly thats what I am afraid of. I was just wanting to see if I was missing anything. It is an older board though so I'm not that suprised.
