Try hdd regenerator on the hirens boot cd it may have some demagnetized sectors, or You could boot with the ultimate boot cd and try chkdsk from that.

update now the bios saying hdd not installed tried another sata hdd... that saying not installed as well changed the sata leads to mobo and hdd still same thing. in the priority list hdd is available were this was not showing before .but when I go to hard disk drive priority press enter then says 1st drive not installed and this is the same on two different sata drive one brand new
and one I had lying around both spinning when connected. integrated peripherals says on board sata controller enabled on board sata mode set to AHCI and only other option is native IDE. thanks for looking any ideas o_O

Do the drives have partitions on them?

I have a laptop from a few years back that won't see the HDD if it hasn't got a partition on it so I have to use XP installer to partition it which I found a bit strange.

If it was working then not working and not seeing new drives I'd guess a MB failure.

I didn't realise that was one of those integrated PC and monitors :(.
