This could indicate a failing hard drive. Tap F12 at boot and enter Dell Diagnostics. Run the tests.

The hard drive also is making a grinding noise.

That is not good. A grinding noise from the hard drive almost always indicates it has failed. Were you able to run the Dell Diagnostics?

I would create a bootable disk of Parted Magic. On a Windows 7 computer right click the iso file and select Boot Disk Image. Boot to the Parted Magic desktop and click on Disk Health. If your drive is red or not detected then it has failed. If detected click on the drive and run the short/long tests but from your grinding description, I don't think you will be able to complete the tests.
