raid boot screen freezes

Specs: Windows xp, i7 920/6gb dominator gt 1600
I have a raid1 setup with two hitachi 250gbs. I
have the computer for work. I keep lots of
videos, presentations, pictures.. etc most of
which get edited or moved regularly. The
computer doesn't have trouble with anything
except recently it has started to freeze during
boot when the raid screen is on, loading intel
storage matrix, giving you the option to press
ctrl+i if you want to enter raid config. When it
normally loads as it loads three periods are
shown one after the other and then a blinker
goes to the next line, momentarily next
windows boot. However, it seems to freeze on
the blinker about 2/3 of the times i boot the
computer. What could the problem be?

Could try to reset the card if it is an add on card. If not might need to get data off if it will boot again. If a mirror remove a disk and try. See docs on how to remove a drive just in case.

Some mirrors can be run on other machines.

In any case I'd get the data off the next time you get it to access the drive. Either the adapter is bad or a or both drives.Could be power issues to or motherboard.
