Start your computer from the original restore disk, once the installer comes up look for the Menu "Utilities" select the "Reset Password" menu item, you will then see a picture of your hard drive, click it and a list of names will appear, you can now reset the passwords for the users on the computer.

In Font Book trying to move or delete some of the fonts - it asks for a password dot know which password? those I try do not work - don't know if I ever set a pswd for Font Book? can you help


Font Book doesn't have its own password - but deleting some fonts will require the password of someone with an administrator account on your Mac.

If yours is the only user account, then you are an administrator. Just enter the same password you enter when you first turn on your Mac.

What you need to do is put in the system disk and reboot holding down the c key this will allow you to boot up with the system disk. Once booted up go to the file menu and select reset password this will allow you to enter your own password. Hope this helps

Forgot my pass word on apple note book


HI there,

You can change your password with the original system disks that came with the computer. Put the discs in the computer, restart it holding down the "c" key to boot off the disk. Choose your language, then go up to utilities tab on the top and choose change password.

This will only change the login password, and not the keychain access passwords.

Cheers

Password problem


Click Restart at the login window
While the computer is restarting, hold down "Command-S" until you see text scrolling through the window.
This boots the computer into single user mode.

At the Localhost% prompt type:
/sbin/mount -uw //sbin/SystemStarter

You will then see various services starting up.

When the Localhost% prompt reappears, type:
passwd root

It will then ask you to type the new root password twice, so do so.

After entering the new password, type:
reboot

At the login window, enter username root wih the new password.

Once you are connected, you can use the Multiple Users application (/Applications/Utilities) to change your normal user's password, or create a new user account. 


Good Luck!!
