Passwords on laptop

Question

I recently found a laptop computer and wanted to buy it. It has 64 megs of ram, a 2 gig hard drive, CD rom, and a Pentium processer. The person who owns the computer forgot their password and we are unable to access the computer. I was wondering if there is a way to get into it by deleting the hard drive without being able to boot the computer. If not, is there any other way I can use the computer? Thanks for any help.
