This might be kinda dumb but I usually would look at the jumper settings on the hard drive...

When you say the drives cannot detect, do you mean not in BIOS or windows, or just won't detect in windows?

And no, there is no way to "kill" bad sectors.

your harddrive is f@%$#! if it click click clicks, ive had it so many times man lol trust me its almost impossible to fix things like this.

If it does not show on BIOS the size then its telling you their is no harddrive so you need to make sure everything is plugged in correct.

is this sata?

If one is full of bad sectors and another one is giving you the click of doom, it sounds (literally) like you're going to need to part with at least two of your hdds for the time being. It'd be nice to know how this happened though, was it just sort of out of the blue? or were you tinkering with the parts before hand?
