Trying to format D drive, but getting error message

My D drive which may be my RAID drive is full.  I tried to reformat it, but when I click on "manage" I get the following message:
    The instruction at "0x5d286f23" referenced memory at "0x5d286f23".  The memory could not be "written". Click OK to terminate.  Click CANCEL to debug.
     I does not matter which of these two I click, nothing happens.  What is going on here? What should I do?  How can I get rid of the information on D drive?

Open up that PC, make sure you are "grounded/earthed", and remove the memory-sticks. clean the contacts with an eraser and blow away the remnants. Reinsert the memory. Restart PC.

If you still have problems, go to http://www.memtest86.com/
and download/run that memtest (preferably over a longer period.
