Default Database Suspect

I am running SQL Server 2000 with sp3 and this morning I got the following error messages: DB_name (Suspect). Now what do you do when your database is under suspect? I was thinking to drop and restore a clean backup am I right? What are the reasons for db to be suspect? I shall remain.

Check out "resetting suspect status" in SQL Server Books Online (2000 SP3 edition).

As for why it happens, BOL for SQL Server 7 says:
A database can become suspect if one of these conditions is true:
-If one or more database files are not available.
-If the entire database is not available.
-If one or more database files are corrupted.
-If a database resource is being held by the operating system.

Sounds like 4 fits the bill best here.
