Get a motherboard manual from Dell.com.
Look for jumper 1.
remove jumper 1.
Power on.
Wait till PC powered on then power off.
Replace jumper.
this will reset ALL BIOS setting including password.
Please let me know if this helps.

While unit is off, disconnect power cord, press power button to disipate any stray voltage, open case, remove the "Button" cell battery on the motherboard, this will effectively errase the cmos settings and that password. Still with the battery removed, attach power cord and reboot the machine, you'll get a error to go to setup and reset time, date, etc. after setup is complete turn off machine and re-install battery, reboot.
