Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook ?

My daughter-in-law gave me her old Dell laptop, but she forgot her password to get in. I tried to go in under safe mode and reset it, but now it says the administative password is not right and I can't even get back in the safe mode. As soon as it comes on I get that message that it won't go pass the administrative password. What can I do?!?
