Degraded RAID 1 array soon after install of microsoft USB keyboard, can't imagine why that would matter. Windows will not shut down or restart without using restart button or holding down turnoff button. SYSTEM seems confused like me! NVIdia mediashield tool shows two sets of arrays one healthy and the other degraded. When the RAID degrades does it automatically assign the healthy drive as the C drive. and how do I know which drive to replace in the box.

Since you have a mirror, either drive should be bootable.  If you remove the data cable from one and try to boot and it doesn't boot, that is the drive that needs to be replaced.  Test this technique with the other drive to be sure you have a working system.

I noticed on my NVidia mediashield desktop RAID manager was showing two mirrors. Somehow the system was corrupted. One was showing healthy and the other degraded. Deleted one array even though there was only one to begin with. I did a rebuild because I had a feeling there was nothing wrong with the drives. I was going to do the process of elimination as recommended but thought it would take a short time to find out. These HD'S are fairly new. I ran disk scans on both prior and no bad sectors or any other problems were noted. Only other problem would be with the hardware itself. Anyhow , the system is running stable post rebuild of RAID 1 array. So glad I didn't do RAID 0.
