First question to ask is do you have any type of raid enabled?  If you're mirroring drives you will need to replace the faulty drive with a replacement and replicate the changes to the new drive from the old one.  If you're running raid 5 or higher you can replace the drive and have it rebuild the data on the drive.  Depending on the hardware in the machine to manage the raided drives you will usually boot the machine and hit a key sequence to get into the management interface for the raid controller.  

Software raid can be repaired inside the OS via the management console.
