Lockups and long pauses in Vista

I'm experiencing very long lockups and pauses in Vista on a desktop. it has a GB P35-DS4 mobo and runs 2x 250GB Seagate disks on a SATA 2 interface. This is not in raid but two individual disks in SATA 2 mode. The lockups are noted in EventVWR > System as
Event Source = JRAID
Event ID = 117
"The driver for device \device\scsi\jraid1 detected a port timeout due to prolonged inactivity. All associated busses were reset in an effort to clear the condition"
These lockups can be for 2-4 minutes and be one after the other. I have tried reinstalling the latest raid driver over the top and disabling every unnessasary service or app to no avail. Obviously I can't remove them and restart as I won't be able to see the disks to reinstal the raid driver to. Catch 22

Any suggestions as to how this can be resolved or where to go from here very much appreciated

Test your disks using the HD manufacturer's diagnostic utility. Also replace the SATA cables, I've often seen problems caused by bad cables. You'll find the diag tools on the UBCD.
