What make and model are your '1 TB raid (500x2)'?

Re-seat all SATA cables.
Try new SATA cables if you have any or get some new quality cables.

Do you know the IASTORV.sys and/or AHCI driver version numbers?
Check in Device Manager, IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, should be Intel 7 Series/xxxx Series SATA AHCI Controller, or similar.

Which RAID are you using, RAID 0?

Check for an update for your BIOS, look in update log and check for fixes.

Have you updated your Nvidia graphics card driver?
Get it from the Nvidia site, not from MS.
Can you test with a different graphics card or integrated graphics?

Which version of Windows 7 are you using? 32bit or 64bit? With 6GB RAM I would guess 64bit.
Check which DirectX version you have, type 'dxdiag' in the search box, it will be on the first page.

Hope the problem is solved.

I would still recommend to install the new Intel RAID drivers 9.6.0.1014, you'll get better performance and Trim will work.

If you are having problems with your RAID setup when trying to update the Intel RAID driver, unplug SATA and power cables for the RAID HDDs, leave the SSD plugged in and update the Intel RAID/AHCI driver 9.6.0.1014. after reboot and confirmation everything is working, shut down re-connect the RAID array, in the same ports as before, Everything will be as before but with the new RAID driver.

If there are any further issues you can check your BIOS version for an upgrade.

What is your motherboard BIOS version?

Let us know the progress.

Im running a P6T deluxe V1...

I will attempt the method you described and pray that it doesn't hose the RAID setup.

currently at work so it may be a few hrs or tomorrow.

Just make a backup image before you try this, then you will have everything saved and you can restore if there are any issues.

If you don't have a image backup program I recommend Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - for personal use.

You can D/L CPUZ, run it, check the 'Mainboard' tab for your current BIOS version.

Your latest available BIOS version is Version 2101,
Release date: 2010/02/25 update

You can get it at the ASUS motherboard site P6T Deluxe, click the 'Download' tab, select your OS, then expand BIOS [History].

well something just happened, but Im not even sure what...

I just sat down and was browsing some news articles and it just died and I saw a flash of Blue from a BSOD, but not even enough to see text then it went black and rebooted. came up like it had been a power failure onto the do you want to start windows normally or safe mode screen.

It didnt come back and say windows has recovered from a serious error like you usually would see after a bsod.

But as it loaded up it popped up an adobe reader update is now ready to install...
