Your machine is a 2008 model. Of course you don't need a RAID card if you are only running one hard drive. I don't understand what you are talking about on the "ipass cable". I would start up from the original system DVD and run Disk Utilities. I would also install a second hard drive if for nothing else to use Time Machine. Hard drives do not live forever and are the first thing that usually goes out and your's is 7 years old.
