    I have a Fry's PC that was built by them with best of breed parts a couple of years ago. I have a mix of SATA and IDE drives in the computer. A couple of nights ago, the power supply started making a funny noise and smell. I was able to shutdown the computer just fine. I swapped out the power supply and re-attacheda all of the cables. The drives and cables are fine. No matter what I do, I can't get the BIOS to recognize the drives. My BIOS is Phoenix 6.00PG. These drives worked just fine, so I suspect the hardware is fine. No matter what I try in the Integrated Peripherals section of the BIOS, it won't pick up the SATA drives. What else should I be doing?

    Thanks!
