Windows 7: Occasional random total crash (No BSOD) Hard drive suspected volmgr 46

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

Hello,

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

Occasional random shutdown leads to crash
My fairly new laptop (<3 months old) will occasionally shut down while the lid is closed. When I open my laptop when this happens it's already at the boot menu for "windows did not shut down properly." It has so far only happened while the lid is closed and I haven't actually seen a BSOD.
