Trying to find a driver for an unknown RAID controller

I recently started out in this position and I am faced with a server that is having severe problems accessing its RAID system. When I first looked at it, I would turn it on, last for about 10 minutes and then give a warning message that it would shut down. Unfortunately I couldn't get the error message. Now it turns that it would not read the SCSI hard drives any more. As a temporary fix, I set an IDE hard drive, install the operating sytem on it, and re-establish some of the server's basic former functions. Vital data is still is the RAID system however, and I cannot access it. Server 2003 can see a RAID controller, but cannot identify it; much less set a driver for it. Any idea of where can I go from here?

The main information should be listed during boot.
Otherwise, you can try to identify it with UnknownDevices (http://www.halfdone.com/Development/UnknownDevices/), it's free and doesn't require installation, you just run the exe; don't forget to download the latest pcidevs.txt file.
Then again, it might just be faulty hardware ...
