Hard Disc Not Detected

Specs: W7U 32-bit, i5 2500k, 8GB DDR
I recently completed a new build with all new components. It worked OK for couple of weeks until I took everything out and put it back in a new case. Nothing was changed, but ever since then it doesn't work properly. For some reason, the drive letters changed completely and Outlook that I hadn't been able to import suddenly appeared.

At first it would only boot to BIOS but by selecting SO: ST3500410AS (?) it would get me to Windows. I did this a couple of times but then it won't boot to Windows, just to BIOS. All I get now is No Hard Disc Detected when starting but can get to BIOS.

In BIOS it shows the HD's where they should be. I unplugged and replugged all of the SATA connections and they are tight. As I mentioned, everything is brand new and was working for a couple of weeks.

Any ideas as to what is going on? This is my home office PC and I need to get it going ASAP.

Mobo MSI Z-68A GD65(B3) 64-bit, Intel i5 2500k, Kingston 96GB boot drive, Samsung HD secondary, Seagate tertiary. Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit

the drive letters changed completely
That is because u changed the sata ports

Try to change the boot order(1.fdd 2.cd or dvd drive 3. OS hard drive 4. usb etc.)
