My computer keeps crashing. I replaced the motherboard, and things were working fine, but it started crashing again. I got the error "The device, \Device\Scsi\viasraid1, did not respond within the timeout period." What does this mean?

When you installed did you select the Raid option if you have multiple drives and a raid controller

No, they are not in a RAID array. They are just two independent drives on the controller.

According to that article, the problem is either with the hard disk(s) or the controller. I replaced motherboards, so its not the controller. How would I verify which drive, if any, are at fault? Or is there a way fix the timeout problem?

This looks at timeout for a disk array, though it is for NT, which XP is based on, so worth looking for the same registry key
