Sounds like you have a video card problem.

To run the Dell diagnostics perform the following steps:

  1. Shutdown the computer.

  2. Press and hold the <Fn> key (next to the <Ctrl> key), then press and release the power button.
    Release the <Fn> key when:
    • The keyboard lock symbol lights begin to flash AND/OR
    • In the upper left corner of the screen shows Diagnostic boot selected

  3. The diagnostics testing automatically begins.
    It may take a few minutes before any alert tones are heard.

  4. Watch the screen for images such as the Dell logo, progress bars,or lines of text and/or listen for beep tones that sound similar toMorse code.

  5. If the screen does show an image, write down the codes that appearon the screen. If the screen does not show an image, write down thebeep tones that you are hearing.
    • Before going further, please click the link to listen to an example of a beep code. Sample Beep Code
    • The beep codes will begin with a quick series of high pitched beep tones, then a pause, then 3 sets of beep codes.
      Write down the 3 sets of beep codes that you hear.

    • If an error code is recieved, scroll back to the top to "Choose an option"and choose "A beep code is heard or an error code is seen. The beep code is not 3-3-3 or 3-3-4."
    • If there is no error code, continue with step 7.

  6. After approximately 2 minutes the system produces a single alert tone and should display colored bars with the prompt Were color bars displayed? (y/n).
    The alert tone is repeated 6 times, once every five seconds for 30 seconds, then the second test automatically begins.
    Press the <N> key on the keyboard to skip the timeout and immediately start the second test.

SOURCE: ''No boot sector on internal hard drive'' message on INSPIRON 6000

It does sound like the hard drive has died but the only sure fire way to check that is to remove it and try it from a proper PC using a cheap 2.5" enclosure.

If a normal PC can read it then it is more likely to be the hard drive controller on the motherboard which can be an expensive repair.

You can always get another drive if yours is pooched and you are not limited to the same size, You could get a larger one

You will however need an operating system.

No bootable device usually means that your hard drive has failed. It is either not connected properly to the computer or the drive needs to be replaced.

What is the message that you are presented when you see the "push f1 or F2 buttons" ? A lot of times it is just a dead Bios battery that retains the configuration information on your motherboard. Do you have to set the time on your clock all the time by chance?
