I have a HighPoint RocketRAID 2320 v 1.04 PCI Express x8 controller card. Lately, it's been working on and off. Sometimes the drives will show up under My Computer and other times they don't. This is what's been going on with it and the things I've done:
I disconnected all the hard drives connected to it and added one back at a time and they worked for a few days and then one morning when I turned my pc on, they weren't recognized by My Computer again. This has happened several times. Another day they were there again and a few days later, they weren't again. I did a ChkDsk on all the hard drives and no problems were found. I bought new data cables and swapped them out, connecting one drive at a time and, again they all showed up under My Computer for a few days and then stopped. I unplugged then reseated the controller card, making sure it was firmly seated and reconnected the hard drives one at a time again. They showed up under My Computer for a few days and then stopped again.
I usually have 5 hard drives connected to my motherboard and 7 connected to the controller card. The hard drives connected to my motherboard always showed up under My Computer. I have now disconnected all hard drives except my C/D drive.
Could the adapter card be failing?
I ran Speccy.
Does anybody have any thoughts?
