    What RAID controller? Is it the integrated PERC 3/DI?
    If so; either one of the RAID components is bad or just needs reseated or... the PERC bios did in fact get corrupted.
    Dell has floppy versions of the PERC software that sometimes are successful in reflashing a bad raid controller. Worth a shot
