    Computer Crash -> Detecting Array

    Hiya,

    I am currently downloading from a newsgroups server at 1MB/sec (not 1Mb) using NewsLeecher. Every so often my computer decides to reset. I have not actually seen it reset yet which is very unlucky as it has done it about 10 times and I have always been AFK.

    My setup is this:

    DFI LanParty UT 250Gb
    C: 160GB * 2 in RAID-1
    G: 250GB * 2 in RAID-0

    My NewsLeecher client writes data to the G: drive. Every so often the computer resets, and as it starts to boot up again, when it gets to the "Detecting Array..." section that is all I see. Usually it says:

    Code:
    Detecting Array...
    
    ID
    1   HEALTHY   NVIDIA   MIRROR   149.05G
    2   HEALTHY   NVIDIA   STRIPE   465.77G
    but when the computer resets itself, all I see is this:

    Code:
    Detecting Array...
    Does anyone know why my computer keeps resetting? Thanks.

    To see if it's blue screening - Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Startup & thingie options -> UNCHECK "Automatically Restart in case of BSOD".

    Then it will actually tell you WHY it's rebooting instead of just rebooting.

    If it still just reboots - It indicates a power issue.
    What PSU and other kit do you have?

    Quite a few on-board controllers don't detect arrays properly from a warm boot sometimes.
    My mate's DFI, his Asus before that.

    Just turn it off and restart again. (Cold boot)

    I got a Zalman 400W PSU. I just put some proper Realtek audio drivers on instead of the crap ones nvidia gives and I havent had a restart since.

    Thanks for your help, I will post if I get another crash, very handy option to not automatically restart. Cheers.

    It probably won't pick up the arrays because a drive resetting from an already spinning condition takes longer to initialise itself. So if your POST is very quick, it can reach the detecting arrays bit before the drive has internally started up and talking over the ATA bus.
