The " disk" it is referring to is the hard drive. If there is a hard drive in the laptop, something has happened to it. The laptop is telling you it can not :find" a hard drive.

The computer cannot find the operating system, the disk error message means it cannot find the hard disk, you most likely have a faulty hard disk or less likely a faulty disk controller.
You can test the hard disk by removing it and connecting it to a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot detect this drive as an external drive then you will know your hard drive is faulty ad you need to buy a new one and install Windows and programs etc..

SOURCE: just bought a used dell
If you bought it on the Internt, any reputable dealer will refund, repai, replace, etc... I would have sent it back if it was not recovered to like new, if I received a computer in that condition.
The other option is to Recover The Software Back To Factory Original (the same as the day it was shipped). If you bought it for the Software that came with it: BEWARE, you may loose whatever did not come with it originally. Here's How:
