poweredge 2650 no logical drives found

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a poweredge 2650 Server with 2 arrays one has 2 hard drive mirror and 3 hard drive raid 0.
The server would not boot up. after reading through the forums i was able to fix it by removing all components from the motherboard one by one and cleaning them and blowing the dust out of the server components. Now when it boots it does not find any of the logical drives. It is out of warranty and can't call dell for support. What can i do to either backup the information or image the partitions to reconstruct the containers on the adaptec 3/di controller. I have tried Acronis true image and it wont find the partitions. Please help its super important to get it to boot and or backup partitions as they were.
