Default Ok...

Unplug the system from the wall socket. Then either move the bios reset jumper to the clear postion or remove the battery. Wait about a min or so then either move the jumper back to the run postion or put the battery back in. Make sure the battery goes back in just like it came out. Plug the wall socket back in and boot to the bios. Command the bios to scan all devices over again. Save and exit. If that doesn't resolve the problem come back and I'll step you a few other things to check...
