    What model of Dell is it? Do you get the white screen all the time? (Is the screen normal at any point?)

    Okay, this looks like a four or five year old laptop. Are you the original owner or is this just "new" to you? If used, better hope you can contact the last owner for the password.

    So have you forgotten the password? If there never was a password and this prompt is recent, that sounds bad to me. Read through the MDL bios recovery threads to see if something there can help you.
