Im assuming you installed your OS on the raid drive. Try installing an os on the 1Tb or just one of the 200gb drives. I suspect some raid issues

nope im using the raid for games and the 1tb for the os and everything else. during installation of windows updates it used to go to a black screen and lock up. then after it finished installing all of those it worked fine. there are only two windows updates that will not finish. i noticed i had the graphics card in a x4 slot and moved it to a x16 slot but the problem persists

sorry you confused me, is it still locking up, or did the windows update thing fix it?
