I feel like i have been dooped :(

so i traded my xbox 360 with lots of extras for a dell vosto 1000. i get it home to find that there is a password keeping me from getting into the bios. they gave me the password to boot the os. real i would like to get rid of it all together. also i have not been able to install the video driver. they even gave me the disk it came with that includes all the drivers ( probably out of date) for it.when i try to install it it says there isn't any hardware that matches it or somthing along those lines. is this a sign that the video card is bad? someone please give me some insight and atleast tell me i didnt get ripped off.

So what exactly is the problem?

So what exactly is the problem? You started off saying there's a password you don't know, then it morphs into being about video drivers, ending up with whether or not the video card is bad.

i'm sorry, first lets start with the video issue. i have aida 32 but it is not recognizing any video adapter. on dells website i found the driver and downloaded it but it is an unrecognized file on this laptop.
