SATA RAID and 1210sa bsod

By Tom1223

  1. I have been having issues with my system hanging and giving me BSODs for a while now. So I completely wiped it and reconfigured, here is what I have. A Dell precision 670 with an adaptec embedded Serial ATA HostRAID Controller with 2 ST312082 7AS drives in a RAID 0 configuration. I also installed a Adaptec 1210SA card which I have a ST3500641AS drive connected. The driver I was using for this was the Adaptec Serial ATA RAID 1210SA driver Microsoft certified for Windows XP Ver 5.0.2195.1620. I have been getting the below errors in event viewer one indicating a timeout and the other BSOD error. I removed the card and now my system is stable. My system seemed stable after the rebuild for a couple of days then I setup a share on the drive for a network backup which backed up about 70GB of data and after this ran the first night a came in to find the blue screen listed below, from this point the system would not run more than 20 minutes without reproducing the BSOD. As I mentioned once the card was removed the system stabilized.
    So any ideas where I should go now? Could it be a defective card? or a driver issue, or a bad drive? Is it possible that I have a conflict between the embedded controller and the 1210sa. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Tom

    Try updating the card firmware and also download the latest drivers from Adaptec.

    Thanks, I did update the firmware and was running a driver I just downloaded from adaptec, it was the only one listed as XP certified. I will try the others and see what happens.

    Might not work with your present system. This does happen even with the DELLS, the are not standard like when you build your own system froms scratch. Still as you have notice when you remove the card all is well and stable when you install it back the system doesn't function, that's your first sign. You could take the adapter back and replace it with another to see if it works or not? If you still have ths same problem after installing drivers firmware updates, and have applied all patches and updates to your Windows version of OS Client or Server?

    As you know we can only advise you what to do? It's up to you in the long run to decided if you want to do what we all advise you to or not.. If I was you I would try a different method or try the adapter into a different PC other than a DELL if you have any clones PC around to test...
