Unhappy Does this mean one of my hard drives crashed?

Hi, I am new to this forum and didn't know where else to turn for my PC problem. I would appreciate any advice you all might have.

I have 2 Samsung HD322HJ 290GB harddrives set up in RAID 0 formation. Usually, when my computer boots up it has them listed right underneath each other like this and says:

Samsung HD322HJ Serial#12345678.... Member Disk(0)
Samsung HD322HJ Serial#12345678.... Member Disk(0)


However, today I went to restart my computer after having some problems with microsoft office randomly saying I couldn't open it because it wasn't installed and the startup screen gave me a bunch of information that i couldnt read at first because it happened so fast but i noticed that the RAID configuration had changed to this

Samsung HD322HJ Serial#12345678.... Member Disk(0)
Samsung HD322HJ Serial#12345678.... Error Occured(0)

Now the computer won't boot up at all and I am completely lost on how to fix it. Any ideas?

Sounds to me like a disk has failed. RAID0 doesnt mirror - You might have lost all of your data....

Boot into the bios and see if it is listed there.
