Hard drives not recognized anymore

I have 4 HDs total. A WD Raptor 74gb, 2x WD raptor 150gb, and a WD
Caviar SE 320gb.

I uninstalled both the chipset and display drivers from Nvidia, and
then booted in safe mode to use Driver Sweeper to remove any remnants.

Upon reinstalling both drivers, my 2 150gb HDs which are in RAID 0 are
not showing up at all. During the BIOS boot, it shows the RAID array as
healthy. In the BIOS, no settings were changed (SATA 3 and 4 are still
enabled along with RAID being enabled).

When I use disk management, they RAID setup does not appear at all even
after rescanning for new hardware.

I have tried unplugging and plugging the HDs back in the SATA ports
when the computer is turned off. I then turned the comp back on, but it
still did not recognize the HDs.

All of my games and their subsequent saves are on the RAID HDs.

Please offer some advice for me.

163.75 and 15.08 version of drivers.

Edit:My RAID array was the "D" drive, but that is now assigned to my
media drive...

I changed the media drive back to "F."

Also, there are some games in the Vista Games Explorer that are still
there, and show a location of D:\ etc, but I can't open them.

Re: Hard drives not recognized anymore

I fixed the problem using system restore. I still have a minor problem,
however.

I wish to remove all of the Nvidia Drivers and reinstall them. Is
there any way I can do this safely without affecting the RAID 0 setup I
have?

Re: Hard drives not recognized anymore
Device Manager Locate the nVidia controller on the list. Right click.
Update driver.
