If you have a hard drive issue, you need a new hard drive and then download the OS from windows, linux or whomsoever, then the drivers from Dell.

SOURCE: Internal HDD hard error
By your description it is very likely your hard drive finally failed. You probably looking at total data loss unless you have made recently an backup of it. You will have to get a new HD and then you can install your OS and software.
Another more remote possibility is that when you opened some covers, you accidentally disturbed the HD connection causing this problem.
Just for clarification, was there a lot of dust inside ?
Hope this helps.

Do you know how to bring up the bios ? (try pressing del or f10, f12, f2 while the dell logo is showing at startup) usually one of these will open the bios. Now look for your "primary master" click on it and then click on populate when the option becomes available.
As long as the bios can "see" your hard drive it is still good.
from here you have 2 options.
the first is to pull out the hard drive and put it into a usb enclosure and reinstall your OS and software onto a new hard drive, while retaining access to your files and such on the external drive.
the second is to use the recovery tools on the OS install disk to try and repair the MBR (master boot record).

It would appear that the hard disk has failed and because the BIOS cannot find a drive, it is getting confused and continually resetting.
Fit a new hard drive and install your OS. Don't forget you will need to install all drivers that are not included on your OS disk.
Hope that helps.
