Are all of the voltages within spec?  I.e., any signs of low batteries
or power supplies on their last legs?

Are you using a hardware RAID?  Is it happy?  Has one of your drives
possibly run out of spare sectors?

I ask because recently I resurrected a PowerEdge 1650 (different model
than yours, I know) that had a dwindling CR2032 on its motherboard, a
little 5V power supply on a riser card that burnt out, and a hardware
RAID that mysteriously stopped working until I rebuilt it.
