Hard drive not being recognised

I have a Asus SK8V M/board and was wondering if anyone knows why it does not detect the sata hard drives if it has been switched off for a while. I is ok if I use the prome on board sata controller but it has the problem if I use the on chip VIA controller.
As it boots much quicker from the on chip I would rather use this.
I have tried updating bios and fiddling with settings but it dont make a difference.
It detects the drives ok if you dont leave it off say overnight.

at a guess the cmos battery maybe needs changing maybe. are the rest of your bios settings retained?

Yep,other bios settings staying the same. The PC is brand new. Just dont want to send it back to Mesh if can help it.
