I know this is an old post, but am just curious as to whether or not you solved the problem. 

Wouldn't it be a hoot if that password was actually MOM, mom, Mom, etc.?  After all, it was Ben's computer and his own mother....

If everything else was on the computer, you might have been able to check out network settings and/or locations and pull up an IP address?  Sounds like there might be a whole lot of information about Ben still on that system.  Poor Ben.

If the store wouldn't fix it for free, I'd return it and let them know what the problem was.  Bet they'd fix it and you could then buy it back.

What store did you buy this at?  Sure sounds like they don't do much of what you'd expect to be done on a resale.  You certainly wouldn't want them selling a system you'd owned and hadn't wiped clean before the fact.
