    How to troubleshoot Dell XPS8100 crashing frequently, and the Intel Rapid Storage Tech rebuilds the RAID 1 configuration?

    Robert.G

      My Dell XPS 8100 system has been crashing frequently, and after the automatic reboot, the Intel Rapid Storage Tech then rebuilds the RAID 1 configuration.  The process takes hours to complete, and at the end there are no hard errors with either of the 715gig drives.  How do I trouble shoot this to determine if one or both of the storage arrays needs replacement, or if this is a software or application issue?
