How to on PC primary user account if don't know password

\015 A friend recently retired and he gave me his office desktop Dell Computor. It is an excellant PC. However I do not have the password and he doesn't know it so I can only use the guest account which means I cannot hook up a printer or change any settings since that requires the administor's account. Can I find out the pasword or override it to attain primary account status?\015
