Pci ide raid card problem

My pci raid card finds my drives sometimes. When I am in windows xp pro I can find all of my hds in windows explorer but then they will disappear and the system will lock up. When I reboot 1 or 2 of the drives on the raid controller card won't show up at boot. I have tried different raid cards (Maxtor and Silicon Image) and I have installed new ribbon cables to the drives twice and this doesn't seem to make any difference.

System:
Windows XP Pro (SP2)
Intel pentium 4 CPU 3.4GHz
2 gig ram
Radeon 9800XT video
Integrated audio
Silicon Image pci raid controller card

Go through the prompts,then have your computers compatability wizard check first.Then look for the drivers properties.Then see if,after it installs the computer still doesn't read the disc then write or call microsoft.Or ask them online about this.

I cannot find a driver anywhere for my belkin f5u098 ide raid controller.


The drivers for this ATA Controller Card are resident in Windows, just like the Motherboard's onboard ATA/IDE Controller. If they don't autodetect and load make sure you are running at least Service Pack 2 for Windows XP and SP4 for Win 2000. Vista and later will have resident drivers.

Not getting a drive letter from Compaq SCSI RAID setup


Did you see any new drives in the disk managemen screen? To get to the disk management, hold window key down and hit 'R', then type diskmgmt.msc and hit enter.

If you do see the drive in the lower half of the screen, you need to initialize the drive either as dynamic disk or basic disk. Then you need to add a new partition and format it.

Good luck.

Pci ide controller for third hard disk


You need to enter into scsi bios first, then do an autodetect for hard drive, this will set the IDE/SCSI hard drive on raid controller.

To enter SCSI control you need to press the same key stated on screen on startup (F6 I assume) I think F3 is just boot settings.

If the card do not enter regularly in CMOS settings for the raid then this card is defective.

Sounds like the system is trying to boot from the drives attached to the controller. Go into your setup and make sure the system is set to boot from the proper drive.
