Specs: Windows 7 Pro, i7 /6GB
On bootup, when the list of bootable devices flashes on screen, one of my hard drives, part of two disk RAID 0 has an "error" next to it. However, my computer is still running perfectly. What are the issues/solutions.

I don't know what the problem is but you'd better find out as quickly as you can. If one of the drives in a RAID-0 array fails, you will lose everything with almost no chance of recovery. Hopefully you have some sort of backup in place. If not, I suggest you copy your important files to another device (external drive, USB jumpdrive, CDs, DVDs, etc) as soon as possible.

You should always have a current backup, particularly with RAID0 where the chance of failure is multiplied by the number of drives. Remember with RAID0, if one drive fails you lose all data. Any sign of a problem should be taken seriously. You should backup your data ASAP as you may not have much time.
