Event log errors on W2K PowerEdge 2650 ID 4097

I have a Server that is having some errors. Server Stats:
 MS Windows 2000  Version 5.0.2195 SP 4 Build 2195
 Dell PowerEdge 2650 with Dell PERC 3 RAID

I only noticed the errors when the McAfee daily updates stopped working which led me
to the event log. (which obviously I should have checked before now) (McAfee daily updates
evidently stopped working last week on 4/6).

The following three errors have been happening between 5 and 10 times each month since December 2009, and
only once so far this month on April 1.  The same three errors appear each time together:

1)  Source:  afamgt EventID: 4097  Desc:  \Device\AFA0 : ID(0:02:0); Error Event [command:0x28]  
2)  Source:  afamgt EventID: 4097  Desc:  \Device\AFA0 : ID(0:02:0); Hardware Error [k:0x4,c:0x40,q:0x8c]
3)  Source:  afamgt EventID: 4097  Desc:  \Device\AFA0 : ID(0:02:0); RAM Failure

Using the Open Array Manager s/w, there is no indication of a problem, and the only event listed is:

Source:  perc2Pro EventID:  580 Desc:  PERC 3/Di Controller 0, battery low.

The battery error appears once every two - four months.  

I plan to reboot this evening, but has anyone seen this before?
Who is Participating?
I would call up Dell first and mention the KCQ code, they should be able to tell you more.

thanks flying - i saw that post also. Would you just go down this list and start with replacing memory?
How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

The server is out of 'extended' warranty, so I'm not sure they will help me, but I'll give it a shot.
If you don't want to pay Dell for support, the only obvious option is either replace the memory, or the RAID card. If you have extra memory, I will try memory first as it's easy to do.

the KCQ code indicates corrupt ESM firmware according to dell.  I'm going to update that tonight and report back when I finish working with Dell.  thanks.

I forgot I had this open after Dell helped me resolve.   Solution was to upgrade BIOS, ESM firmware & RAID controller firmware.
