  1. 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
  2. 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?
