Yes. You'll need to replace the hard drive with that error code.
No matter you can't use that computer without replacing the hard drive.
If you have a warranty for the computer contact tech support for your dell, give them the error code you have
and they will immediately replace your hard drive.
Re seating the hard drive won't fix it.
Hope this helps!

Make sure you DO NOT plug in your lap top to the power out let. This could cause a shock.
You see the Dell media direct, means your CMOS is OK.
But if Windows is not loading means the spill could have damaged your hard drive. I would strongly suggest you take it to a shop where they repair laptops.
This way you may have to replace your hard drive, but save your note book.

most likely related to the blue screen issues. a possible reinstall of the OS may be needed. To check if it is blue screen related, restart the computer, press F8 when system restarts, then select the option to disable auto-restart option on the advanced options menu and press Enter. Next time you use the system, see if it will still auto-restart or if you'll get a blue screen. If there is an error, a system rstore or OS repair or reinstall may also be needed.

I had this problem a while back and it turned out to be a faulty hard drive. I had called Dell and done all of their troubleshooting to no avail. At first I thought it was a power source problem as that had happened to me with an old desktop I had, but it turned out to be the hard drive. If you are still under warranty with Dell, they actually are pretty good with customer service. I called them at 4:30 one afternoon and no kidding, I had the new hard drive by the next day. It's not always that fast, but it sure is faster than most tech support! I had to replace a keyboard, too, and got that in a hurry.
I would recommend at least calling Dell...they will run you through a number of trouble shooting scenarios. Then you will know for sure what it is, but I would bet it is the hard drive.
