    hi hi
    i hope anyone can help me!!!!
    i have an epox 4g4a+ board with raid and 845g chipset + two western digital wd400bb 40 gb in a raid 0 striping system
    my problem: if i restart from windows and want to reboot, the pc stops with black screen with a blinking cursor in the feft corner and nothing go on ----> reset
    the only way to go to windows is: shut down the pc complete fo more than 30 seconds and then he boots up normaly.

    GeeZ umm i would like to help you but i really can't pin point the prob. I also have Two 40gig WD drives (7200) on a Raid_0 array and had no problems... I did have problems with my windows setup but that had to do with my video card. I really don't think it has to do with you raid adapter but here is a thought..have you installed your latest drivers for your controller?

    It's probably caused by a program that windows is havin' trouble with shutting down so read tweak 8 here. :smokin:

    my board is the newest from epox and the latest drivers are included ( no newer version avaible on the epox or highpoint site)
    I think the board is damaged or the drivers + raid bios have any error

    I don't think that has anything to do with your drives, I do however have ONE WD400BB drive installed as master.

    That has happened to me twice. I have an Epox 8KHA+, and I suspected that it was just a power supply fluke, or possibly a family member confusing things at shutdown somehow.

    But it happened twice, a restart fixed it once, and the other time I had to shut it off for 15 seconds and then restart it.
