Alienware X51-R2 Internal Hard disk drive not found

After a year and a half of flawless preformance my Alienware X51-R2 has begun restarting, then showing "Internal hard disk drive not found  To resolve this issue, try to reset the drive." After restarting, it seemed as though it was resolved, though now it restarts almost every half-hour with the same error. I have already searched the forums, but no solutions have worked. It is a default Alienware X51-R2 with Windows 8.1 Is there any solution to this error?

And now, on turning my computer on and logging in, the screen turns completely white, my desktop appears with no icons until it resets to the same error. Can someone tell me how to fix this?

There could be a problem with windows and the best way to fix it will performing an Alienrespawn however before doing this run hardware diagnostic (PSA) just to make is not the hard drive the one damage.
