Alright, let's try something else. First, reset the hardware/software connections in the BIOS and clear the temporary memory of all corruption:
- Shut down and turn off the computer.
- Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
- "Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
- Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
- (If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
- Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware
Then, clear the CMOS through the BIOS by opening your BIOS (see your manual for how to access the BIOS), going to the EXIT screen, selecting Load setup/optimized defaults, selecting save, and selecting exit the BIOS.
Prior to doing the CMOS clearing, you may want to backup any important data in case it has adverse effects on your RAID configuration. You will have to set up the RAID configuration again.

The first set of steps is safe to do and will not affect the RAID setup.
