Hard Hardware Problem

Basically a computer has 2gb of ram 2 more gb of EXACT ram is place inside the computer,
when started it MASS reboot and only staying on for 8 seconds tops.
Now with the new 2 gb of ram removed computer wont boot up ( so its back to normal)
edit: A disk READ error has occured,
There are 2 WD Velociraptors 300gb WERE in raid ,well it was till i was forced to change the bios,
Windows 7 repair tool does not find and recongise the hard drives
In Bios advanced cmos settings the raid/achi settings is disabled, if it any of the options it will just freeze, with only 1 of the veloci's being detected
Basically how the f do i make windows 7 load up without a disk error has occured

Your missing your raid drivers they may need to be installed specifically during install - post your system specs so we can help.
