So I had just installed Skyrim and it locked up about 20 min in. Could not do anything so I hard shutdown my computer. Restarted a minute later and played again for about 40 min and locked up again. After I shut it down it would go though a cycle of either booting to windows and locking up a min or two in or not booting to windows at all.

I was just going to format my drives since it is all backed up but now I cannot even get to the BIOS because I gets to detecting the hard drives and just sits at "Detecting Array..." (I had a RAID 0 setup) and just sits there. If I leave it alone for awhlile I can sometimes get it past the "detecting" but still does not load to windows.

My setup is as follows:
-ASUS Striker II Formula
-Intel QX9650 Quad Core 3.0ghz
-Western Digital Caviar WD7500AAKS (2x750gb)
-Corsair Crucial Ballistix DDR2 (4x1gb)
-EVGA GTX 460 SE

Not sure if I have a failing hard drive problem or if I have a motherboard problem. Any help is welcome. Thanks.
