Are they protect with password the HDD inside the BIOS settings?
In this case the OS you use is irrelevant. You can not lift the password without loss all data on the HDD. In nowadays laptops the passwords can't be reseted. If you can prove by a bill to Dell that you are the real owner of the laptop, the Dell's customer service maybe can help (By the case of an Asus laptop the customer service of Asus could reset the Bios master password, but it may not work for HDD).

Anyway what is the "crtl- or Fn f11 combos" ?
