Bios Doesn't Recognize Hard Drives

Specs: Windows XP
I have a 40 gb hard drive right now set up as a primary, I had a 20 gb slave and the slave is no longer being recognized. It's an OLD PC, with an old non-upgradable flash bios. I have a 120GB and a 250GB hard drive that also won't be recognized from the bios. I've check the jumper settings, and the IDE cables, and everything. It all checks out. I have an old AMI bios and I'm curious what's going on. Any light to be shed on the situation?

I suggest to check every harddisk individually.
Some old harddisks do not run in combination with harddisks e.g. from another manufacturer.

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!
