If you are talking about XP, the previous owner probably did not assign a password to the administrator account. (I find that people usually forget to do that).
In this case, start the computer in safe mode, log in as administrator, and then reset the passwords.

Help to restore the computer to normal (Bios Password)


RTM - Read The Manual

I found the info below in your manual online. You will need to reset the jumper on the motherboard to remove the password.

Admin Password (Not Set default)
Displays the current status of your system setup
programs password security feature and allows you to
verify and assign a new admin password. The Admin
Password may be disabled by a jumper on the system
board.


Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for Manuals and search them for Passwords.

Clearing Forgotten Passwords (the manual shows a picture of this)


1 Remove the computer cover.
2 Locate the 2-pin password jumper (PSWD) on the system board. By
default, Pin1 and Pin2 should be connected. You will need to remove the
jumper and boot the system, as follows.
3 Remove the jumper.

4 Replace the computer cover.
5 Connect your computer and monitor to electrical outlets, and turn them on.
6 After the Microsoft Windows desktop appears on your computer, shut down your computer.
7 Turn off the monitor and disconnect it from the electrical outlet.
8 Disconnect the computer power cable from the electrical outlet, and press the power button to ground the system board.

9 Open the computer cover.
10 Locate the 2-pin password jumper (PSWD) on the system board and
attach the jumper to reenable the password feature.
11 Replace the computer cover.
NOTICE To connect a network cable, first plug the cable into the network wall jack and then plug it into the computer.
12 Connect your computer and devices to electrical outlets, and turn them on.
NOTE This procedure enables the password feature. When you enter system setup (see "Entering System Setup" on page 79), both system and administrator password options appear as Not Set meaning that the password feature is enabled but no password is assigned.
13 Assign a new system and or administrator password. Replace the computer cover.

NOTICE To connect a network cable, first plug the cable into the network device and then plug it into the computer.
14 Connect your computer and devices to electrical outlets, and turn them on.

Hello,

when the machine is booted then please right click on my computer and go in manage option and it will open computer management.

Please right click on your user name and click reset password and assign a password.
Before logging in now your system will be asking the password.

If you are talking about the password immediately after turning on the machine then you will have to reset the password in bios under security.
You will need administrator rights for resetting windows password.

I Need helpseeting an adminstrator account up on a used computer


Open control panel and create a new user account with administrator privileges. Log off the previous user and logon to the one you just created. Then delete the original user and this should set everything as default for you the new user.

If the password prompt is in a browser ie, Internet explorer or Firefox you will need to remove the addon (sounds like parental controls).

The only way of changing the registered owner would be to complete a fresh install of windows.
