Talking Dell Inspiron - Quick

Hi guys!

Looking for some helpful advice in resolving a failed HDD in a Dell Inspiron 15-3531...

I prefer to not spend money unless it's a must (For a SSD (or worst case, HDD)) buy only option.

Dell doesn't offer a download-able recovery disc

I've tried Fat32 & NTFS W10 boot USB's

I think the problem is with missing embedded drivers and perhaps encryption with some hardware?

Any thoughts, advise, resources etc you can provide would be awesome!

Thanks.
