Sounds like you IDE 1 and IDE2 are out of commission. You can cheat having to buy a new mobo by getting a PCI IDE Controller (about $35 bucks at CompUSA, last time I checked) and plugging your CD Rom's into that.
No telling what will go wrong with your mobo next, though, you really should get a new one or RMA it for warranty work if you still have warranty on it.

Also, Please watch your language.

Have you switched power leads going to them? I had a psu that had a lead going back ....and because of the under current it was sending, cause all kindsa weird things to happen.

You have more computer problems than anyone else on this forum it seems. Didn't it take you 5 builds to get this PC running?
