Two Scenarios here 1) It is a notebook setup for a network and 2) Not on a network - you have setup the password yourself for your own security purposes.
In the first instance this can be easily solved by requesting your network administrator to reset your password. In the second scenario you can do three things 1) Re-Format and Install the OS again (in which case you will loose all data (2) Get a good password cracker (downloadable everywhere "Google-it" (3) Keep on trying until you get lucky (in the 1st scneario Keep on trying until you get lucky will not work as you will get logged-out on the 3rd or so attempt. Sorry but your'e in a bit of a spot and there is no easy way out except if it is the first scenario.
Good luck

Got a used Dell Inspiron 1501. The operating system has been wiped out. I have no idea what the password on this computer is. Help! Can the password be reset so I can reload?

Your best bet is to take it to someone who repairs laptops. He will remove the back and take out the CMOS or PRAM battery and then Clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in the CMOS, which includes the system setup information and the computer password. Or, if your brave you can do it yourself. The battery is a lithium cell, like they use in watches then its usually situated behind the keyboard and under a piece of velcro next to the cpu.

Be careful (!) when removing the keyboard on any laptop they are connected to the screen by and to the system board by ribbon cables. And ribbon cables cost a lot more than the battery, and can be hard to find - even for a DELL. As I have found out when trying to repair broken laptop for a friend.
And put on the antistatic wrist band.

Before you start all this take a note of your system power on settings (usually displayed by pressing delete on boot up).

Also look at Your model is not far off.

Best of Luck

I can't find video driver for dell inspiron 1501. OS Windows 7. Help please

Sometime the hardware is different from the manufacturers original equipment.
Try restoring to a previous date if available. If not:
Go to All programs, Accessories, System Tools, System information, and see what the video hardware is.
Look for the display type, and then go get your driver.

My computer will not boot up.

First, if there is no password set you may be able to simply press enter leaving it blank and continue with the repair.
Alternatively, you can reinstall WIN XP over your existing installation which will replace your windows files with fresh copies from the CD.
