The only thing that I can suggest it to reset everything. Carefully remove the battery from the motherboard, making sure that you don't create static electricity and short anything out. Remove the connection from the power supply to the mother board(small flat white? cable). Remove the IDE connectors From the Drives, and plug them back in(just to make sure there's a sold connection). Then plug everything back together and reboot. This is all assuming that you've cracked the case before. If not, and it's still under warranty, you may want to explore having a professional take a look at it for free.
