i have been having some major fits with this problem for a couple of months now. i have an HP p6320y, and inside it has 1 blu-ray burner, the stock 1tb HDD with windows 7x64, and 2 internal 1tb hard drives, that i use for video work. almost every day when i start the computer there is a problem... eitehr it doesnt read the blu-ray drive, or it doesnt read one or both extra hard drives. i have done probably 6 factory restores the past 4 months. and this problem simply hasnt been fixed. any ideas of where to go? if i start the computer up with none of the sata drives added, then one by one plug in the sata cable at the desktop they all pop up, but for some reason most of the time it does not want to start up and work normal with all devices going with no interaction on my part. i have had this setup for like 18 months and had no problem, but all the sudden 3 months ago the computer makes me want to do target practice. can't think of it being a virus because i have done 2 factory resets the past 10 days.
any other ideas of what the problem could be? could the power cable splitter thingy be bad? could it be a bad sata cable? is there a driver i need to install? whats the deal? =(
