    I got a G4 tower but no start up disk.  The compuer already has a password and user name on it but I do now know it.  Is there a way to get around this and start up from nothing?

Unfortunately, you need the start up disk to change the password.

If you have the operating systems disk, you can boot from the disc, and once the setup come dump, choose password reset from the "utilities" drop down menu. Change your password, shutdown, and reboot.

I have apple i book g4 i forgot my password.


Changing your administrator password

To change the administrator password, you must know the current administrator password. If you're logged in as the administrator, open Account preferences and click the Change Password button.

If you don't remember the password and automatic login is turned off, you can reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X User Install disc.

IMPORTANT: Because a user with the Mac OS X install disc can gain unrestricted access to your computer, you should keep the disc in a safe place.
To reset the administrator password using the Mac OS X disc:

  1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc and restart the computer.
  2. When you hear the startup tone, hold down the C key until you see the spinning gear.
  3. When the Installer appears, choose Utilities > Reset Password.
  4. Follow the onscreen instructions to change the password.
  5. Quit the Installer and restart your computer while holding down the mouse button to eject the disc.

Be sure to change your login password in Keychain Access to match your new password.

I want to know master password, Because I forgot password of ibook G4.


Unfortunately, the only way to recover your password is to make a new one. To do this you will need to re-install your operating system by inserting the OS disc that came with your computer. If you have lost this then you will need to purchase an OS disc. Snow Leopard can be purchased for $40 here from Amazon.com. Hope this helped!

I don't know the administrator password for my iBook G4


I don't know if this will help much, but you need to get your hands on a copy of either an iBook system disc or a retail Tiger OS disk. (Disclaimer: Please use legal copies.).

With the disc in the drive, restart the machine and hold down C to boot from the disc. There's an option to reset the admin password when booted from the disc. It may be in a menu (top of screen). Reset the admin password and you'll be all set. If you don't have a Tiger disc, you may be able to get one inexpensively from eBay or wherever.

This brings up something I've noticed helping people with problems, most don't know where their system discs are (or never got them). You'll likely need a system disc eventually. Friendly advice: Keep track of them!

Insert your Mac OS disc, restart with the disc as the startup disc, then go to the menu at the top of the screen (instead of launching INSTALL), you'll find a password reset in the menu...

Download password


if you have access to any macintosh operating system disk, you can change the admin password. I would recommend checking ebay if you cant get a hold of one.

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
