The hard drive has failed. Replace it and reinstall windows and all your programs and files. This is why you made copies and backups. If you are still under warranty, contact Dell Support.

You need to install a new hard drive I recommend a SSD for maximum performance such as a Crucial MX100. Have a look at the manual for details:
