How can i fix my raid zero error

I have a Sony PC that is running windows 7.   It is using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology.
Currently the PC will not boot into windows and is displaying a "disk Error" (press Ctrl+alt+del, to continue)

The Rapid Storage Technology setup screen is displaying five options
1) Create A raid Volume
2) Delete A raid Volume
3) Reset disks to Non-Raid
4) Recovery Volume Options (greyed out)
5) Exit

below in the disk volume information

Raid ID 0  Volume 0  Level Raid0(STripe)  Strip 128kb  Size 119.2GB  Status Normal   Bootable Yes

Physical Devices
Port 0   Device Samsung  Serial # 301...329   Size 59.6GB   Type/status Error Occurred(0)
Port 2   Device Samsung Serial  #  301..329   Size 59.6GB    Type/Status Error Occurred(0)


I am trying to determine what my options are?

The Achilles Heel of RAID 0 is that a fault on ANY drive causes a loss of access to data on all the drives in the array.

I'm sorry to say this, but without a professional recovery service, I think you should consider all your data forfeit.

Sadly, Paul is 100% correct.  

RAID0 has no fault tolerance.  Your options are restore from backup after you replace hardware, deal with the data loss as best you can, or get professional recovery services for your data before you mess with either disk further.

Not that anyone wants to be right here, but Paul gets my vote for the correct answer.  I only chimed in to confirm Paul's statement as I would hope someone would do for me if delivering bad news (I like to be certain).
