How do I bypass a Primary HDD password authentication check?

I recently purchased a used Dell Latitude laptop online. Upon recieving it today and booting it up, it asks for a HDD password..... Is there anyway to bypass this, or even to get a bootable disc to run...... I want to wipe the hard drive and reinstall XP....
The seller seemed a bit shady, so it it is entirely possible it is stolen.... I sent the serial numbers to Dell's stolen laptop database, so far there has been no match....
Or do I need to get a new hard drive for it?
