Likely a bad hard drive...run the Dell diagnostics by hitting F12 at POST and then picking Diagnostics.  Give the code (if one is given) to Dell Warranty Support for a new hard drive.

hook the drive to a working PC -  or boot from a live cd -  and post the minidump for analysis
find it in windows\minidumps
live cd's : ( i prefer Knoppix)
