The power-on password is a password for extra security which is entered before Windows loads.

It can be changed or removed by entering the BIOS when starting up the computer, this is done by pressing a special button once turned on eg: F12

Reset 10.5 Leopard & 10.6 Snow Leopard password
  1. Power on or restart your Mac.
  2. At the chime (or grey screen if your chime is turned off), hold down Command+S on your keyboard to enter single-user mode.
  3. This step is optional, but it's a good idea because it checks the consistency of the hard disk before moving on. At the prompt, type fsck -fy and press Enter/Return. Wait for the checks to complete before going to the next step.
  4. Type mount -uw / and press Enter.
  5. Type launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist and press Enter.
  6. Type ls /Users and press Enter. This lists all of the usernames on the computer - helpful if you don't know or remember what these are.
  7. Type dscl . -passwd /Users/username password and replace "username" with one of the users displayed in the previous step. Replace "password" with a new password of your choice. Press Enter.
  8. Type reboot and press Enter.
Reset 10.4 Tiger password
  1. Power on or restart your Mac.
  2. At the chime (or grey screen if your chime is turned off), hold down Command+S on your keyboard to enter single-user mode.
  3. Type sh /etc/rc and press Enter/Return.
  4. Type passwd username and replace "username" with the short name of the user account for which you'd like to reset the password.
  5. Type your desired password and press Enter. It won't show itself on the screen, so be careful what you type. You will most likely have to enter it again to confirm.
  6. Type reboot and press Enter.

My mother-in-law's IBM Thinkpad will not boot. When she turns it on, there is just a lock icon at the top of the screen. It is a secondhand laptop, but it worked just fine for a few months. What could be...


Someone has got into the BIOS configuration and entered a Power On Password and when you enter the correct password you can then enter the BIOS to remove this password or allow the laptop to boot up into Windows.
This password is stored on an EEPROM chip and there are no backdoor passwords available.
The Power On Password is used to protect the laptop from unauthorized access.
