    Why am I having random RAID volume failures?

      I need help, please.


      I am having random RAID Volume failures while working on video and photo production since January when a new hard drive and graphics card were installed.  The balloon message at reboot after the crash says, “RAID Stripe Failed….missing hard drive”.  I have 2 dedicated hard drives for video and photo production and both will be missing when the RAID failure occurs.  I am new to maintaining my own computer since the person I had maintaining it for me is no longer available.   I have no idea what the problem is.  I have been able to recover the volumes each time, but am worried that eventually I will not be able to.  Do you have any ideas to fix this problem?  Should I download the newest Intel driver?  (8.9?)  Would this help or hurt my situation?


      Computer Info:

      DELL PC – I think it is about 5 years old.

      XP operating system

      Graphics Card: GeForce 9500GT

      Intel Storage Utility 4.5

      I use Pinnacle Avid 7 for Video production, Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Photo production

      I have 2 separate hard drives which disappear when the RAID volume fails


      I don’t know what other information might be needed. 



      Thank you,
