Bought used dell vostro 1700, wasnt told about the bios password.

\015 So i bought the laptop, wasnt told about the bios password on start up. have no idea how to bypass it, looking for help on the situation. i think what the service tag is, is #2Z05RD1 - 595B. it says bios revision A00 on the start up screen. ive been told too just buy a new hard drive and it should work but ive read that might not work. do you have any sugestions?\015
