Old windows 7 computer, can't bypass admin pass. How do I restore it?

A friend of mine gave me an old laptop of his but he doesn't remember the admin pass at all. Is there anyways to recover it to manufacturer settings from the start up?

Umm... I don't believe I'm "hacking" anyone's computer. I'm not trying to figure out his password, or his network... just bought the laptop and I just need to restore the system. I figured it out anyways, thank you so much for your help on this matter.

Thank you for understanding the forum rules.
We have no way of knowing who is trying to do what to who's computer so we must be careful on what information we post about passwords.

Denied Admin Account Pass ?
Most, if not all of the time, I'm logged into Win7 as a standard user. If I need to run a program as a Admin, I right click on the program and choose "run as administrator". I'm not getting prompt for the password, which is denying programs from installing even after rebooting.
