My PC sat unused for ~1.5 years and now will not turn on with everything connected. I can boot into BIOS with CPU, PSU, and Mobo connected. I cannot boot if either my SSD or HDD is connected to the PSU.

CPU: Intel i5 4690k
Motherboard: Asus Vanguard B85
PSU: Corsair CX750M
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970
SSD: Samsung 860 Evo 250g
HDD: WD Blue 1TB
Memory: 8gb ddr3

I can't quite seem to find my specific issue anywhere online. I appreciate any help/insight!

Try go to BIOS, find "secure boot" option, and make sure they are set as "disabled". Then on boot priorities , set the SSD to number 1/ top. Then try to boot.
If it's doesn't work, try to clear BIOS.

I've disabled the secure boot. Sorry, I believe I've misspoken: I can't get the PC to turn on when I have either of my drives connected to the power supply. Therefore, I can't even get the SSD to show up as a boot option in the BIOS.

Okay so this what do you mean. Because I'm not really good in english.
Power issue sometimes can make the HDD/SSD not detected by BIOS.
But for make sure, do you feel the HDD spinning when you try to boot ?
Try to boot without GPU installed.

I do not feel the HDD spin when I try to boot. The CPU fan will briefly move when doing so but the computer does not seem to turn on. I have not had the GPU plugged in because it will not start with that installed either.

Do you have another PSU ? The possible issue is your PSU doesn't supply power for SATA port.
or do you have another systems to check if the HDD and SSD is still working.

I have another one and am having the same issues. I do not have another desktop to check the HDD or SSD but may pick up an enclosure to test them.
