Go to the Dell websight & download the instruction manual it will tell you all you need to know

Usually just push into the drive bay until clicks into place (machine switched off of course), to remove there is a little catch to release an it can then be pulled out.

The drive bay can also be used for other equipment this is probably why the drive was loose in the bag.

Cannt give ou further info without the model number.

Additionally, there's a fair chance that the drive is also secured by one or two small screws accessed, usually, via the bottom of the laptop, they might even be located under a removable 'hatch', itself secured by a few small screws.
