Hi Rivers -
Have you given that info to Dell and asked them for their ideas yet ??

2 things -
1 / It is forum policy not to direct you how to find these exactly - You mayy be the legal owner but we have no way of knowing -
2 / Have you fully been through Google yet ??

Regards -

I purchased this from a guy who won it in a storage auction. I've looked through google but wasn't able to find anything. Any ideas?

The documentation Dell makes available is here:

The user's guide details Passwords in the section Securing Your Computer. If this publicly available information doesn't help, you will probably need to contact Dell and provide evidence of ownership of the computer so they can assist you.
