I just bought an HP Pavilion

I just bought a used HP dv1000. It was having problems with all of the drivers, and the built in wireless card, so a friend tried to do a system restore on it. Now, I am completely locked out of it. The person who sold it to me, got it from his father who died, and doesn't know the administrator password. Am I completely screwed, or is there some way to bypass it, and start from scratch?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
