Here's whats happening. your sister bought this from a company. now its basically asking for windows password for some of the employees that it was registered under. there is no shortcut to fix this problem except to use the operating system CD that came with it and reformat the computer. You need to run the CD outside the operating system. You can go to bios by hitting F2 on the dell screen or F12 and see if you have an option there to boot to the cd rom drive. if you dont have the disk, you can use any existing dell XP operating system.
hope this helps.

If the operating system is XP or Windows Server then try the username as administrator and leave the password blank and press enter.
if it does then well & good.
if it doesnot then in the setup utility select 1st boot device as CDROM and insert a bootable disc and boot the system and install new operating system.
