Do you want to reset or remove the actual BIOS Admin password ? Have you contacted Dell regarding this ?

Try using the password as Dell ( only 3 attempts )

If this does not work, try the steps below.

Try to reset the CMOS.
Disconnect the computer from the mains supply, open the casing, remove the CMOS battery.
Reset the CMOS by using the jumper, replace the jumper to its original position, put back the battery and start the system.

Contact Dell and tell them to provide you with the steps to remove and reseat the CMOS battery.
It will reset all the BIOS values.
