Contact the previous owner. We can't help you because you could be a thief with a stolen laptop and need help getting control of it. Not saying you are, just that you could be and we don't know. So the rules forbid us from helping people to circumvent security.

Contact the previous owner for the password.
Forum rules preclude any assistance with getting around a password restriction.

And why are you using a used laptop with the old OS installation? Are you 100% certain there isn't a keylogger on there, sucking up all your passwords?
Answer - no, you are not 100% certain.
