    if the gray/white screen is asking for harddisk password only then you can get the notebook to work with a new harddisk drive.
    if it asks for the system or admin password you can go here:

    and wait for password or contact dell (make sure you are the legal owner or have the ownership tranfered to you).
    if the BIOS setup configuration (which allows you to change the settings in the bios) is disable post back. I can help you with that.

    good luck!
