Default Computer will no longer pick up any hdd

My computer stopped detecting my hdd, and I've tried several things to solve the problem. I switched out the hdd with another and replaced all the cables to no effect. I know the hard drives are getting power because they vibrate when I turn the pc on. Thus, the problem obviously has something to do with the data portion of the system. As said earlier, switching data cables has not worked. I even tried plugging the hdd into different SATA slots on the mobo to no effect. I'm guessing that my motherboard just blew out in that region or something. Any help is appreciated.
