QuestionRecovery of data from Raid 5 hard drives after failure. [modified] Pin

Do any of you have experience with an affordable data recovery service? Or even better, a cheap fix for our "little" problem described below?

Last week one of our servers apparently had a simultaneous failure on 2 of 4 drives in a RAID 5 configuration. Unfortunately, there is no recent backup of the data and attempts to get the system back up with assistance from Dell have not been successful.

We realize there might not be "good" fix for this and have been searching the Internet for options as well as data recovery companies.


System
Dell Power Edge 2600
RAID 5 configuration with 4 SCSI hard drives
3xSeagate ST336607LC (36 gb) original drives (0,1 & 3)
1xFujitsu MAW307RNC (73 gb) replaced awhile back (2)

Error description
Drives 0 & 1 are malfunctioning
System will not boot
Forced 0 online to see if system would boot, it did not.
Turned off 0 and forced 1 online to see if system would boot, it did not.
In both cases, system begins boot process and gets about 75% through progress bar on Windows splash screen then exits to BSOD, error 0x0000007B – Boot device unavailable
