You will need to move data from the C: drive to one of you other drives. If you have movies/pictures that you don't really need on your main drive then it's easy to drag and drop them across to another drive.
Either that or you will need to buy a larger SSD for your C: drive and reinstall Windows or use cloning software.

The storage and memory should be separate issues. If Support Assist asks you to install a new BIOS then disregard the message. Only ever update your BIOS through the Dell Support site and not the Support Assist program

To find the drivers and downloads for your laptop you first need to find the Service Tag sticker on the bottom of your laptop. Go to the Dell Website and click on Support and enter your Service Tag in the large box. Then you go to Drivers and Downloads and all of the available drivers, applications and BIOS versions will be listed.
If you do decide to update your BIOS (do at your own risk) then it's best to do each available version in order. Do not jump multiple versions ahead. To find all the available versions you need to click the down arrow on the righthand side next to where it says DOWNLOAD and it will open up and say Older Versions. Click on this.

It seems like you could have a bad HDD/SSD and also a bad RAM stick. I'd start by replacing your storage drives.
