i dont know whats going on but my computer will not recognize my hard drives. i have two of them. however if i unplug the CD-RW it will recognise them about half the time. i tried differant combinations and got several differant results, but over all when my computer recognises the hard drive it wont recognise the CD drive. it all happened after formatting my hard drive to reinstall the OS. i removed all the extra stuff like video card printers etc. and restet the system bios. now when i try to restart my computer i get one of two messages.

no hard disk available
or no existing OS

HP told me my hard drive was bad i dont think it is i believe that it may be my mother board

any ideas?

Check your BIOS's boot order.
