    Occasional random total crash (No BSOD) Hard drive suspected volmgr 46


    I just added 2x HGST Travelstar 7k1000 to my Dell m6700 in a windows striped dynamic disk (OS RAID 0). One is in the secondary hard drive slot; the other is in an optical drive caddy. I have tried two such caddies. These disks are not used for OS. For that, I use a Samsung 840 pro 256gb SSD.

    I am encountering seemingly random total crashes. There can be as much as a week between crashes or as little as a few hours. The active application will stop responding. Switching applications via the task bar causes the task bar to similarly change colors as if it was not responding. CTRL+ALT+DELETE has no effect. I recover by holding the power button for 5 seconds, causing a hard shutdown.

    I typically restart my system weekly; other than that, it is either on or in sleep mode.

    I currently have my page file disabled (because I have 24gb of RAM), but that has been the case for almost a year and there were no problems until I added these hard drives. Before adding these hard drives, I had a 320GB OEM hard drive that served the same purpose. I also use Actual Multiple Monitors and AutoVer, but have for a year with no problems.

    I have attached a screenshot of the system log surrounding this event.

    Thank you for your assistance

    EDIT: Added log dump file. Apologies for my earlier negligence

    Hello Chopter, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Please read the instructions here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions, and post back with the needed information. One of our BSOD experts should be by later when able to further help. :)

    I posted a dump about a month ago, but I will post another one to this reply.

    Thanks for your help!
