Raid 5 causes server to shutdown

By hammerjackfb111 ·
I have 3 disk Raid 5 array setup on a Windows 2003 server. The array is OS controlled ie. no Raid controller card. The Raid appears to working nicely expect when it transfers large amounts of data like copying the entire "My Documents" folder from an XP client workstation or even copying a backup file from one folder to another on the Raid it will cause the server to power off. No event is recorded in any of the event viewer folders. If only small files are handled this problem does not occur. Can anyone help me figure this one out?
