Dell 2850 Blue Screen

All,

   This morning my Main file server popped up a BSOD.  No error codes or such just a blue screen saying that the OS had encountered a critical error.  I rebooted the system, it didn't see the RAID controller at all.  I powered down for about 30 seconds and turned power back on,  it booted straight into w2k3 with no errors and I was able to log on.  It ran for about 10 minutes then got another BSOD with a kernel inpage fault error.  It appears to be either a bad HD or the controller is going shot i think.  Anyway to determine if it's a HD problem without any error lights on the HD blinking?

Thanks

Since I posted this, the server has rebooted again.  It won't even get past the Bios boot now.  It either stops on the PERC BIOS before it scans for the SCSI disks or it doesn't even see the PERC card during BIOS scan and tells me I don't have a boot disk in the system.  I am leaning more toward a PERC controller error now.

It turns out is was the PERC controller.  I ended up replacing the MB with another, rebooted, imported the volume and it booted straight up.
