Generally they cannot be repaired, Just copy all your data off it

The drive is dead or dying. Try connecting not as the boot drive, but another drive. If you're luck you may get data off of it. Either way, replace it, or RMA if under warranty. And if you're wondering about data recovery, be prepared for $1000, so consider the value of the data.
