Looks like you have support for 6 SATA devices and 3 fitted.

Have you tried enabling / disabling ACHI in BIOS?

Hold F2 as you restart.

If still same then maybe the BIOS is not seeing the keyboard

For some reason it has done a BIOS recovery

try F2 again to see if you can get into the BIOS after the recovery.

Also worth doing is a power off, open the case remove and refit the memory modules, as this fault seems to appear due to loose memory.
