DL380 G5 - POST Error - Unrecoverable Media Error

On a "ProLiant DL380 G5" running Windows 2003 with a "Smart Array P400". POST error each time we reboot the server (but everything work's fine with the server):

1716-Slot 3 Drive Array Controller - Unrecoverable Media Errors Detected on
Drives during previous Rebuild or Background Surface Analysis (ARM) scan. Erors will be fixed automatically when the sector(s) are overwritten.
Server did have two drives fail with-in one month of each other, but HP System Manager reports no errors. Ran SCANDISK and CHKDSK from Windows and the file system appears OK.

We are trying to avoid reconfiguring the array and having to restore from backup.
