Default HD's Not Found - PC Won't Boot!!! [; ; winXP]

Really starting to hate computers now!!

I been playing about with my desktop trying to use a laptop HD temporarily, but had no joy.
Stuck my HD's back in it, exactly as it was before (2 HD's to one IDE slot and 2 CD Drives to other slot).

Anyway, now the PC isn't finding the main (or both??) HD's.

I've checked all cables are back in as they were many times, but the bloody thing still dont wanna boot up, just the message:
"Boot Failure
Reboot and Select proper Boot device
or insert Boot Media in selected boot device"

I have also left the BIOS settings on Auto for all drives and the CD DRives seem to load fine.

Anyone got any suggestions pls?

Is the boot sequence in the bios set right? Doe's the bios not detect the drives at boot?
