It will be useful for us if you tell what issues that you have.
And it will be nice to tell what edition and version of SQL Server 2005 are you running. The server configuration (CPU, RAM, DISK, ...)

How much memory are configured to SQL Server?
How many databases you have?

SATA and RAID 1 isn't the best for a database. Only if it's mostly a read database.
Think in change it to SCSI and RAID 5.

well unfortunatley they have 2 drives at the moment so raid isn't an option just yet.  The sql server it's configured with the defaults values and there's 7 db running of this application.

You should think in changing disks and RAID configuration.
Meanwhile check your SQL Server memory. See how much it's the maximum memory and how much you have free to OS.
Databases files should be separated. At least you should have data files in a different disk of log files. And both should be separated from OS disk.
If you have a virus scan, database files shouldn't be checked.
Check for databases indexes too. Check if you have it update on all 7 DB's. And run reindex often (weekly based at least).

And there's more things you can do, but for now I think it's enough to you check :)

Cheers
