Recently my computer randomly hangs, crashes and slows down at night, when I click on something when I wake up the computer just doesn't respond and shows the loading thing for my cursor.

Today, I couldn't even boot up my computer. As soon as I logged in, the computer became unresponsive for 30 minutes in which I just forced the computer to shut down using the power button.

I can boot in Safemode with Networking, and I checked my Event Logs. Around the times that my computer has problems, there are many Event Id 3 error involving \Device\RaidPort0 and occasions between those an error saying it's resetting RaidPort0. For these the sources was 'nvstor64'

I'm not sure whats wrong here.

This sounds like a bad hard drive. Do you have any strange noise coming from the hard drive? –  Renan Apr 6 '12 at 2:41
My HD is completely silent –  ArcaneExplosion Apr 6 '12 at 2:43
Rather strange, then. –  Renan Apr 6 '12 at 2:46
I don't think it's the HD, because safe mode words.. it's pretty much (mainly) the same thing as a normal boot. –  ekaj Apr 6 '12 at 2:55
