    Hey guys, bit of a strange issue here

    My home system has suddenly started thinking it has a SCSI/RAID controller installed !! :eek:

    It BSOD earlier, I checked device manager and there's a scsi/raid controller in there with an alert saying device not working as driver missing or corrupt.

    I've disabled it in device manager but it keeps bringing up the add hardware wizard when I start windows and says its found a scsi/raid controller.

    When I first disabled it it seemed to make the system unstable and I had to boot up in last known good config to get windows to load, however I can boot up ok now. Have tried system restore to no avail.


    Any ideas guys ? I'm thinking of trying to uninstall the driver for it and uninstall the device via device manager, maybe check bios settings.

    Any help appreciated.

    Is anything listed in the BIOS for the device?

    Also when in Windows and it prompts for a driver try Windows update. 8)

    Edit: forget the BIOS bit!

    I had an issue with a floppy drive showing up in device manager the othe week, it also ended up showing in the Bios for some reason.

    How I got around it was to delete the icon in My Computer then disable the device in computer management then restarted the PC went into the Bios disable the device then reboot as normal and it was gone.

    See if any of that helps.

    Ive got the same thing. Its the raid controller for the SATA drives, perfectly normal AFAIK. The drivers for his are normally on the installation CD for the mobo.

    Thanks guys, I've disabled the device and uninstalled the driver and it doesn't seem to be affecting the system anymore.

    Raf, don't have the mobo disc. Do you think I should track down the drivers online or leave it disabled ??

    You should be to download the drivers from the mobo or pc manufacturers website if it was pre-built mate.

    You should be ok mate unless you want to RAID your SATA drives in the future.
