SOURCE: Hard drive cant boot
If you're running Windows XP, put your Windows XP (or recovery) disc in, load Windows Setup, then press R for Recovery in setup. You'll be asked eventually which installation of Windows you want to use, it's usually 1. It'll ask for an admin password, if you haven't set one, hit enter. Then type "fixmbr" and confirm the action. Restart, then that should sort your problem.

Get in the bios and change the boot up seqvence, ist probly set to look for all kinds of bootble divices, change that to only boot from the hdd in your laptop, disable all other boot devices, when you done that, hit F10 to save the settings and restart your laptop.

You can definitely get another one, as long as it's compatible with your system...get the original specs from dell, then search online at western digital, tiger direct, etc. etc.Many online sites will have recommendations for your system.
Please consult links here and here
You may want to run chkdsk to see what's up with it...

Insert your USB stick into the computer. Run HP USB Format Tool. Select your USB stick and then choose the FAT or FAT32 format options. Click "Start."
Extract the files from the GParted Live zip file. Select the USB stick as the destination.
Open a file browser and navigate to the USB stick. Select "utils" > "win32" > "makeboot.bat." Double click on "makeboot.bat." Enter "Y" when prompted.
Power off your computer leaving the USB stick inserted.
Connect your portable hard drive to another USB port.
Power on the computer and quickly press "F8" through "F12" to access your boot menu.
Check your computer or motherboard manual for the exact keystroke.
Select the USB stick as your boot source and press "Enter." Allow the Gparted GUI to start.
Select the external portable hard disk drive. Click "Partition" on the menu bar.
Hover over "Format to" and select "NTSF."
If you are unable to create or format the partition, select delete partition.
This will erase all data on the external hard drive. Confirm partition deletion. Select the external drive again. Click "Partition" and hover over "Format to" then select "NTSF."
Select the external hard disk drive again. Click "Partition" on the menu bar and then "Manage Flags." Check the box next to "Boot." Save and apply changes to the drive.

Insert or plug your OS installer, usually a DVD, CD or USB thumb drive, into the computer. Power on the computer and access the boot manager again.
Select the source containing your OS installer and press "Enter."
