Phoenix BIOS 6.00PG and SATA drives

Specs: Vista, Intel Core 2 CPU
I have a computer that I've used for a couple of years. Recently, the power supply started to make a funny noise and emitted a funny smell. I shut down the computer just fine, and replaced the power supply. However, when I go to start the computer again, it doesn't recognize any of my SATA drives. I have gone into the BIOS (Phoenix 6.00PG) and tried to change some settings to enable the SATA drives/ports, but no matter what I do, the drives are not recognized in BIOS. I know the cables are fine, and the drives spin up. There is a section on Integrated Peripherals -> OnChip IDE Device, and there is a section called "On-Chip Serial AtA setting". No matter what combination of settings I use, nothing seems to work. I'm so frustrated with this as I've spent many hours on what should have been something simple (power supply replacement). Any suggestions would be very much appreciated!

It's possible the bad power supply fried the SATA controller on the motherboard.
