If it has XP on it and you want Win 7, you have no option but to buy a copy. We are not allowed to tell anyone how to get past passwords, but if you look on Google "How to find administrator password in Win 7" you can get help. You only have to buy the Upgrade Version of Win 7. Here is a tutorial on installation.
