It's been a while since my Dell repair tech days, but I believe that generally means that the CPU microcode isn't being executed and the POST process is not even starting. If you find the documentation for your model on Dell's website, you should be able to find common error codes like that, and what it means. However, I would expect it to mean expensive repairs are in your future.
