BIOS stopped recognizing all SATA

In the past few weeks, my entire system seems to have gone crazy on me. For the past few years, I've been running an ASUS M3N72-D mobo with an AMD Phenom 9850 quad core. I have 3 SATA drives, one HD and two DVDs, and one IDE HD. I had been having detection issues with the DVD drives for awhile, but it was intermittent, so I let it go. Then, about a week ago, all my SATA hardware just disappeared. The BIOS no longer detects any of it as being connected. The IDE works fine, though I did have to replace the power supply tonight. I had hoped it would fix the SATA issue as well, but it didn't. If anyone has any ideas, they'd be very much appreciated.

U might on right direction on check the PSU...
meanwhile i would also like u to change the CMOS battery... (also reset CMOS by leaving the batt out for 5 min)

(i once had old comp that hard recognize drive because the battery is weak)

So far, changing the CMOS battery seems to have solved the problem. I never would've even considered it, as I've never had one die on me before. Thank you very much.
