Answers :

Hardware for laptops is usually specific for the provider. Go to the dell website to find the correct driver files for the laptop. There is probably some good information for troubleshooting this specific issue there too. Your service tag or maybe the express service code number is your key to the right stuff.
Go to Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Administrative Tools, Computer Management. Under Computer Management, expand Storage->Disk Management. On the results panel, Right Click the Volume(X:) then click Mark Partition as Active or click Reformat.
