I have an ASUS A8V Deluxe motherboard. There is a 250GB Maxtor SATA drive on the VIA controller and
2x250GB Maxtor SATAs on the Promise controller in IDE mode. I set this up a couple months ago when
I installed Win XP Pro SP2. All 3 drives had been working fine until today. Now when the PC boots
it says FastTrak378 ........, then Scanning IDE Drives, then Array Not Defined (the 2 drives do not
show as before). I do not recall exactly what the messages in the post were before, but I know it
listed the 2 Maxtors before. When I get into Windows and go into Device Manager under SCSI and RAID
Controllers it shows WinXP Promise SATA378 IDE Controller with a yellow exclamation icon on it.
When I get into Properties it shows: This Device Cannot Start. (Code 10).

Can anybody tell me what is wrong and what I should try?

I had a similar problem with onboard sound. It was all set up and working ok. Then one time I booted up and no sound! I looked at the audio controller in device manager and it had that yellow!. So I right clicked on it and one of the options was to "roll back the driver". So I tried that, and it fixed it. Mind you, I did not make any changes previously and I have no idea why it stopped working. What I did fixed it, and that is all I care about. You could try the same approach, no guarantee it will fix it. If it does not....on to the tedious task of troubleshooting sata. You may also want to re-install the driver if the first suggestion does not help.
