Your best avenue is to start by removing the parent IDE controllers in device manager and Windows should detect and configure them properly on re-booting. Depending on which chipset you have, (Intel,Via, AMD etc;) you may need a download from their site for the correct enumeration of the Bus Master or Mini Port driver.
If this fails you have to consider the possibility that the controller(s) or 'Bridge' to them is damaged, in which case you would need to get a PCI card with controllers on it(not good if the MOBO is iffy)or replace the board.
If you have access to another PC, it would be useful to try any or all of your drives in another machine to check they are working correctly.
One last thought, make sure your drives are recognised by the BIOS and you're not just short of a new CMOS battery.
