Test the disk using the disk manufacturer's diagnostic tool. You'll find most of them on the UBCD:

You don't install the UBCD. It is an iso file from which you burn a CD, or a bootable USB stick, and then you can boot your PC from it and run the diagnostic. You don't need any access to the OS installed on the PC at all for that.

Sure, unless the server uses hardware RAID, then you would have to remove the disks and connect them to a non-RAID controller to test them, as the disks aren't visible to the diagnostic utility if they are behind a RAID controller. As I mentioned, you boot from the CD or USB stick to run the diagnostics. That way the Server's  OS doesn't come into play.

No. If you don't have physical access to your server, then get your IT department to check it out.
