Clearing the CMOS will reset the password...
Take the button cell battery out for a few minutes, put it back in, and all settings, including the password, should go back to defaults.
Unfortunately it looks like your BIOS battery is under the keyboard...
Dell has got what looks like decent directions here, for getting at it:

SOURCE: HDD Password Reset ?
contact dell support and give them the asset tag / serial number of the laptop and they will be able to tell you a back door hard drive password which you can use to reset the hard drive password.

Restart your laptop and keep tapping F8 key the moment you see something on the screen. You will get a black screen with some options written in white. Select the option Safe mode and then you can create a new user with admin rights. Or else at the windows login screen press and hold ctrl and alt key and tap delete key twice and then it will take you to a login screen. Dont put any password there just hit enter. And you will be able to login with admin rights.
