    disconnect the data cable from 1 drive at a time to see if the other drive reads a disk as possible 1 drive might be dying & causing that problem.

    well it seems to be working. I tryed to update the drives but there was none available. I scanned and defraged the drives(It needed it anyways),then I turned the computer offand let it do the slow set up.
    I don't know
    There was also some updates for my computer but it said something about java so i don't think it was that.

    I'm just glad it's working and if it ever happens again I'll know what to try from all your suggestions.
    cheers
