    There are two options. You can do a factory reset and get rid of all of her leftover data, or you can clear all the data and cache from the Market in the App Manager. The factory reset would be better, in my opinion, but if you don't want to do that I'll tell you how to clear the data from the Market. Just let me know which way you'd like to go.

    Oops ..huh ... I guess android market account relies to a Google Account (google mail, etc ...) then did you try a password recovery/reset of your google account on google site and then put the right password afterward in your device ...

    So you may help/ask to the device owner to do the password reset/recovery procedure ...

    It seems obvious to me , so I guess I missed something in your issue context...

    Or the ID is from somebody that wont be the owner any more... then you want a new Id ...
    In that case I would try to remove the GoogleAccount defined in the Setting/Account & Sync and recreate a new one... but I guess there is some side effect to this and that won't work and the device market reset procedure from furbearingmammal should help much more..
    My two cents
