Do all the other drives have the same value for this field above,
"Events"? (Are they all 0.161?) If all four are the same, then the data
on your array is intact. If at least three of the four are the same,
you will be able to re-build the array from the three good drives. The
one that has a different value got kicked out of the array.

So what this above says is, "according to the superblock info on *this*
drive, the state of each drive in the array is 'active sync'".
When you do mdadm --examine /dev/sd*1 on each of the other three drives,
if they all report the same information (all drives 'active sync') your
array is fine.
If this is the case, I agree with the other poster that you may have a
hardware problem elsewhere, such as power supply.
Of course, even if the array does have a problem with one drive, it
still could be that something like a power supply problem could be
causing your array to fail.
