Alright to begin, I have an Asus M4N72-E motherboard, with 8 GB's of RAM, 1 TB HD, a GTX 460 video card, DVD drive, and 1000w PSU. Just last night I came to my computer and it was waiting for my password to boot. I entered my password and it came up with a message stating 'Reboot and Select proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key'. Have checked the BIOS and it does not detect my HD. I checked the cables to ensure there connections was stable. I checked with three other SATA cables connected still does not boot or even detect my HD. I tried to boot from optical drive and it still displays the same message. I checked the power cables and they are providing power. I also, checked all SATA ports on the motherboard with no success. I am lost and wanna get this resolved or atleast diagnosed. My HD and Optical drive are SATA. I have determined a possibility of my SATA ports being faulty seeming as I cannot boot from the optical drive. Any ideas as to any other things I can try to resolve this. I have not reset my BIOS yet, that is the last option I got with my knowledge.
