Hello bumpertk;

You're going to have to work back through the original owner and do transfer of ownership with Dell.
Then Dell will help you. It's a security feature meant to prevent identity and data theft.

Try giving it back to your husband's sister and explain to her that you don't care who in her family put the admin password on the laptop, just have that person remove it. Tell her you are not looking to lay blame on anyone and you won't even ask her who did it.

Otherwise, do as WR2 has stated. Have your husband speak to his friend so that he can call Dell and transfer ownership to you.

You can reset the admin windows password , then the other things will be easy to solve.
