? About SCSI Raid card

Recommended Posts

I have had a couple of hard errors associated with my SCSI raid card. I know that in raid 0 if something in the array goes bad I'll lose my data. I am not worried about that as I have everything I need backed up. What I am wondering is. If my card goes bad will it damage my Hdd's? Have Seagate 15k drives which as you all know cost a bunch. Should I replace my card now? I took it out and reseated it hopeing to solve what may be a bad connection. Have not had the problem since but have not had my machine running that long and if I get another "serious error" don't want to take a chance of ruining my Seagates. Windows XP Pro warned "Serious Error has Acured"

Thx in advance,

hoggy

Sounds like you want someone to make the decision for you, but you will have to do that. What I can say is, look in your event viewer for any red stop signs that are associated to your problem and report them back here.

Also, Windows XP while being a nice operating system, still has some bugs(actually many). I already had to reinstall the OS after getting registry BSODs. The computer was installed with Windows XP for about 1 week on a basic computer configuration. Just be careful with drivers that you install.

Sir, I am not looking for anyone to make any decisions for me. I simply want to know if a SCSI card failure could destroy my harddrives? Any way, I just don't know these things and the people here at SR are quite knowledgable and thought someone could answer this question. I don't even know how to print out the error but wrote it down. It goes something like this: BCCODE:1000008e BCP1:C0000005 BCP2:BFA5A976: BCP3:EEC43B80 BCP4:00000000 OSVer.5_1_2600 SP:0_0 PRODUCT:256_1
