Hi there
Download the raid drivers from Dell if you need them.
You have to go into the bios settings to enable raid, look to see what raid options you have and choose them accordingly to how you want your raid configuration.

Thanks for using Fixya!!!

No raid in bios


The Dell Dimension 2350 does not support RAID functionality. You will have to purchase a PCI card that supports RAID.

I need a diagnostic tool for RAID falure code 0. Initial boot indicates degraded condition. DISK scan does not seem to remedy the issue. Did the drive actuually fail? Is there a fix? Primary disk still...


It looks like you have two arrays here. The first one being a mirrored RAID array and has only one disk. This means that the other disk has failed in some sort. This does not mean that the drive is bad, just the RAID failed for some reason. You will need to rebuild the RAID if you want to maintain the same level of redundancy.

You can just attempt a rebuild the RAID to the same drives but if this fails you will want to replace the bad drive. In order to do this you will need to make sure you can tell which drive is which. You do not want to mirror the bad drive to the good one.

If attempting a rebuild to the existing drive does not work or is not an option (because the failed drive could really be bad), you will need to determine which physical drive needs to be replaced. You may be able to hot-swap the drive but if you can power things down, that is always safest. Once the new drive is installed, you can rebuild to it and all should be well after that.

I need to run dual display on my dimesion 2350 dell desk top. can you advise please what dell compatible graphics card i should look for please .


Your Dell 2350 has ordinary PCI slots, which can be used to install ANY PCI (NOT PCI Express) video card. Here is an example of the card type that you can use: http://www.amazon.com/Rage-128VR-32MB-Video-Card/dp/B003S72HI0

*note - PCI video cards are the lowest performance type available *

A well meaning~idiot teenager changed my set up on my Dell Dimension in BIOS to Intell ARRAY.. now I cannot bring Windows up


If the well meaning teenager took a non-raid configuration and created a RAID array, then any data on the drives was destroyed.

If you reply with the RAID array and HDD status information from the boot screen (THE intel Raid Controller will report the status of the array, degraded, normal or Failed and the status of each HDD member or non-member disk.) With that information I MAY be able to assist in getting the system to boot

Raid failure


Not a lot of details, but here is some basic information, assuming you have a Dell with Integrated RAID

Dimension 9150/9200 and XPS systems have RAID, depending on the model the exact troubleshooting differs. At boot, after the Dell screen, you should get the RAID status listing. RAID 0 will either be normal or failed. Raid 1 can be normal, degraded for failed.

If the RAID array was RAID 0 and one of the drives failed, then all data is lost and you'll have to create a new array then reinstall Windows and drivers

If the RAID array was RAID 1, then you may need to add the new drive to the Array, CNTL+I or CNTL+N at boot (Depending on the system model) add the new drive to the array and reboot. If the system still will not boot to Windows, then you may have a software error too with the OS.

If during troubleshooting, the array was broken in the RAID BIOS, then the array will need to be recreated and Windows/Drivers reinstalled.
