Question about Computers & Internet
I bought this apple computer used from Univ of Carolina surplus store,
they failed to tell me they could not unlock password.
Is there a way to get past the password?
Thanks for your help.
You didn't mention what type of Mac PC you got, so I'm going to assume it is one capable of running the OS X Operating system.
The best way that I know of to do this is to get an install disc for OS X. Start up the computer, Push and hold the <Apple> key on your keyboard, load the disc into the drive.
Pushing the Apple key during boot will bring up the boot menu. Tell it to boot from the CD/DVD drive.
This should start the install routine. Part way through the install it will ask you for what disc and directory to install to. Use the disc tools to tell it to format the hard drive and then choose that as your install destination.
The rest of the install should be fairly straight forward.
This will allow you to start with the Computer fresh and will clear the password from the system.
Hope this helps you,
