[Hard Disk/PSU?]

My computer has developed a problem during bootup. I have a RAID0, which I use and a seperate drive for storage.
During detecting storage devices my raid will have an error being detected and I'll be taken to a Disk Read Error, which is understandable since it's not detecting the raid. However, if I ctrl-alt-del from here (retry while the system's already powered) it'll function normally, and sometimes this error doesnt even occur.

I'm not experienced at all with this, but I'm assuming it's a power issue with the motherboard, harddrives or mb.
Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

The problem is the RAID 0, you can increase the speed, but in some case of fault the data could be lost.

The problem is NOT RAID0 saint19 - there is nothing wrong with RAID0, i have been using it with all my mains for the past 5 years without hassles and has the same risk factors as a single drive - aka you loose 1 hdd you loose all your data - lesson - BACK UP YOUR DATA etc.

On the other hand one of your HDD's, cabling or PSU may be faulty so check those areas out.

^The HDD is part of the RAID, right? So, if one disk fail, the enter RAID fails too.

Have you updated BIOS to the latest yet? (Assuming your two VelociRaptors are attached to the ASUS M3N72-D)

It certainly a low-level software problem and has nothing to do with hardware failure.
