Go to the nearest Apple Store (they will confirm some information as to your identity to ensure the laptop wasnt stolen) and they will reset it for you for free.

I am running OS X 10.4.11 and would like to upgrade my operating system?


Please provide more information.
To what would you like to upgrade it?

Since OSX Mavericks was just announced, I'm going to assume that's what you're wanting to upgrade to.

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

Mavericks Capable Macs

Mavericks, like its predecessor Mountain Lion, requires one of the following Macs with at least 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of available hard drive space:
  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

If your Mac isn't one of the ones listed above, you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini model that was originally released in Early/Mid 2006, the latest version of Mac OS X your system supports is Snow Leopard.

Mac pro administrator password forgot


If you cannot get the CD, you can create a bootable USB disk as a startup disk. If you then go into Disk Utility you will be able to reset the admin password.

Apple stores wont reset it for you. Computer shops may have charged you $50 to $200 trying to reinstall the Mac.

If you received an OS X install disk with your used MacBook you can change the administrator password.
1: Boot with the OS X install DVD by restarting the computer with the C key held down. You may release it when the Apple logo appears.
2: When you get to the install menu, select your language
3: Select Reset Password under the utilities menu on the menu bar.
4: When the password pane come up, click on your Hard Drive Icon,
5: Select the original administrator's user name (capitalization counts)
6: Enter a new password for this administrator account (capitalization counts).
7: Re-enter the new password to confirm.
8: WRITE IT DOWN SOMEWHERE!
9: Provide a password hint.
10: Click save.
11: Make sure you reset the home directory permissions and ACLs by clicking the reset button.
12: Reboot your Mac.
If you don't have an install disk, you will have to buy or borrow one.
