Hi all, I have an Inspiron N5010 laptop. About two weeks ago, it started acting very sluggish. It was almost unusable, even in Safe Mode with Networking. It did, however, work decent in regular Safe Mode. After backing up my files, I did a restore to the Factory Image. It began working perfectly, except upon boot-up. The Intel Rapid Storage Technology gives me an error stating that the Internal System Disk's status is "At Risk". I can "Reset Disk To Normal", but upon rebooting the error reoccurs. Is it safe to assume that this is the beginning of a hard disk failure or could this be something else?

What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?
