In my experience, it isn't whole systems that are certified, but rather
subsystems (video card, sound card, network card, etc.). That being the
case, you can simply get a list of the hardware in your Dell, and
compare that against the various compatibility lists.

On another front, why don't you tell us what problems, exactly, you are
experiencing?
