Default HDD's about to die?

So... No worries about me backing up stuff. The only things I could possibly lose are my saved games, other then that nothing is really important on this PC that isn't backed up atm.
BUT! I still would rather not have my RAID-0 screw up and me have to buy new HDD/HDD/SSD.


Anyways, the concern.
When I restart my computer after it gets past the bios it goes into the RAID configuration thing that you normally have to press ctrl + i for. But it just opens. Then it says Error detected on my second HDD in my Raid 0. But then if I just ignore it and keep going I can go into win 7 easily. And I played a bunch of games and defraged my hdd. And I am just backing stuff up now just incase.

So any ideas why it would say error detected?
