How do I change the login password on my pc?

You will need the password from the previous owner. Then go to the control panel on the start menu. When you get there look for User Accounts icon. That will let you change a password but you have to enter the old one.

I bought a used laptop from my aunt and her lap top was wiped clean but they didnt take the administrative password off. now we cant get into the computer to put the drivers back onto it.

Well either you can ask your aunt or reload the HD with a fresh copy of the OS. If its a bios password and u need to change the boot order thats even harder to get around.

I inherited an inspiron mini but my aunt left her password in. I don't know the password. What can I do?

if you are willing to lose the data you can reformat the computer with these steps:

1) insert the windows installation disc
2) boot from cd
3) when you get to the hard drive manager part delete all of the hard drive partitions (it should make one partion)
5) format the one partition
6) install windows to that partition
