Default BIOS Extreme Hardship

I am calling out for help from my laptop for my desktop. My desktop's BIOS successfully detects my drives part of the time. Last week my desktop's BIOS couldn't detect both of my harddrives and my floppy. It only detects CD ROM. And i waited 30 minutes and i started it and it detected my harddrives and Floppy rom. I don't know why. And it happened today also. My BIOS is unable to detect my harddrives and floppy. I will have to wait and start again. I don't want to wait every morning. My BIOS is Award Modular BIOS v6.00PGN from Someone help?

Sounds like the same thing that happened to me. It was a bad harddrive in my case. Whenever I had my CDROM and HDD hooked up together, it only recognized my CDROM. But when I unhooked the CDROM, sometimes it would recognize my HDD, but not all the time. I replaced the HDD and it fixed everything.
