Answer:

Now that you're saying that, it could also be an encryption key. You remove that yourself by erasing the hard drive.

Thank you it was helpful cause we didnt know what to do. We only found a half of the receipt, I'm guessing he had this mini for a while and then just let it sit . We are gonna try what you recommended an see what happens. We we're told that it was a system code that it has by others and that we hold down a bunch of buttons at the same time it would pull up another screen with a lock on it an we would type some code in that but we are not a computer genius we don't know what it was or what code to type anyway. But again thank you for your time and your reply
