Try this:
- F2 at startup to access bios page.
- Turn on Cap lock, Num lock, and Scroll lock
- Hold ATL key down and type EFB
Post back, please.

Do you able to reseat memory and hard drive? If so, remove them and reinsert them in. If not working, then try F12 during startup to select boot device, or run diagnostic test.

Sounds like the hard drive has failed but first I'd try reseating it as PUNKY suggested.

If the hard drive has failed, what am I looking to pay to replace it and will I loose everything if I don't have it on backup?

Q: If the hard drive has failed, what am I looking to pay to replace it?

A: It will depend on the size of the drive you get. Assuming you want a replacement from Dell, your pricing is here:

Q: Will I loose everything if I don't have it on backup?

A: Depending on the cause of the drive failure, you may be able to connect it as an external drive and pull data off of it that way.

You don't have to buy a drive from Dell all you need is a 2.5" ata-6 drive. The price depends on the size and speed(rpm) you want.

Any data that wasn't backed up isn't necessarily lost it just depends on how much you want to spend to get it back, data recovery isn't cheap. You could try connecting it externally(usb adapter) as mentioned above
