Welcome to Seven Forums Independent. 1st thing, check the size and free space of the 100mb System Reserved partition in Disk Management. If there is not 40 MB of free space, this can happen.

Start> Right click Computer and select Manage> Under Storage, click on Disk Management

Hello, what was it you downloaded ? some updates have been known to cause similar problems. Just something I noticed, the 39Mb partition has 100 % free which doesn't fit with the idea of system recovery.

I read also, "This error code follows an error statement suggesting that Windows computer has encountered a problem that keeps it from checking the license of the computer"
That being the case a reinstall is the only option.

The 39mb OEM partition - likely showing empty because files are hidden - normally contains Dell Diagnostics, not the System boot files which are shown to be on the Recovery partition to help it run when booted.

If you have no other problems with your System may I suggest you use free Macrium to Image your system instead of Win7 backup imaging as it's a preferred app by many here anyway. Also you can use Acronis' premium cloning/imaging app which comes free if you have a WD or Seagate HD.

Be sure to make your Factory Recovery Disks in case the Recovery partition is damaged and won't run if needed as the preferred first method to Recover to factory condition: Dell Restoring Your Computer´s Software to the Factory Settings

I would also run Dell Diagnostics to make sure it will run from boot: Information - How to Run the Dell Diagnostics Utility & Error Code List | PC Help Forum

If you want to start fresh without the Dell bloatware you can also Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 with a special note included for Dell owners.
