Windows Server 2008 - "Integrated RAID Exception Detected"

Something happened today that caused my server (Dell PowerEdge T300) to begin running extremely slow.  Even logging in to the desktop on the server took over 5 minutes.  I did a reboot to see if that would fix it, and I saw this error message pop up.

" Integrated RAID Exception Detected.  Run SAS Configuration Utility.  Currently in the state of RESYNCING."  (But it doesn't tell me which drive)

I have a C: where the OS is located and D: (data Drive) and the f: (pre-installed recovery drive from dell).  

I've run the Dell System/Hardware Diagnostics and am not getting any bad results.  And I'm in the SAS Configuration Utility, but I can't seem to find any option to resync or repair.

Is this a hardware failure?  Should I replace the drive, even though the dell diagnostics are telling me that the drive is fine?  Is it a cable?  But if it was a cable, wouldn't the diagnostic tests fail? Or should I try a repair of the O/S and see if that fixes it?

Are there any amber lights on the front?  Especially with any drives?

Do you have OMSA installed?

It will give you details on each drive and the status of the RAID container.

Trying to repair the OS won't do anything since it's at the hardware level, not Windows.

What level RAID?  If it says resyncing I'm guessing RAID 1?  I would expect it to be slow if it's trying to rebuild.
