Did you run the Dell diagnostic programs? You can start them by pressing F12 right after you see the Dell logo. I suggest you run the memory and hard disk tests.
I suspect you have a failing hard disk that needs replacement. If the Dell diagnostic OKs your hard disk. Then, you will probably need to restore the laptop to its factory state. There by loosing ALL your stored data and installed programs.

Good Luck
