I would suggest running a diagnostic from the manufacturer of your hard drive before replacing the drive. They're free and they can tell you if the drive is failing without having to open the case.
A new hard drive will cost around $90 at the larger retail outlets, although Dell can sell you one with the OS already installed (that'll make the job a lot easier - although it may cost more). Make sure you've got your Dell recovery CD/DVD's on hand before starting!
