have you checked all the usual power connections to make sure you have pushed them in.

Remove the power plug from each of the drives, and check with a voltmeter that power is arriving to the plug.If it is, go into your BIOS and also Control Panel/Device Manager and make sure the drives are being recognised.

the drives are not reconised because they have no power but the plugs are in properly and work fine, i have tried 2 power supplys and both do the same thing

hm have you had your mobo long that could be at fault.

the mobo was working fine the other day and i can seem to get into the bios fine with no problems, i tried reseting the bios but to no sucsess

Just to mention sometimes the screws could be touching the case and the mobo might be shortcircuiting. Just a thought anyway as I know this can happen with mobo's.
