Default SATA drive not detected all of a sudden...

Hi, I've been using 2 SATA drives as storage for a while now (about 6 months to a year.)

Just yesterday my PC has been hanging on startup. I realised quickly that it was not detecting the SATA drives and that was causing it to hang.

I think it must be the SATA controller on the motherboard (Asus P4P800 SE.)

The drives are Maxtor Diamondmax 10.

I'm about to try them one at a time then try them on my other PC and see what happens, will report back with more details.

Right I unplugged one, booted up, hey presto it works!

Now I've got both plugged in again and it seems to be working.

Not sure what happened there?
