Mac eBook A1002 date problem

The date keeps coming up 1970 and you can't change it because you need an authorized password for it. A friend just bought this and some techies wiped it and reloaded it. Is there a way around the password to fix the date?

To reset your OS X password without an OS X CD you need to enter terminal and create a new admin account:

  1. Reboot
  2. Hold apple + s down after you hear the chime.
  3. When you get text prompt enter in these terminal commands to create a brand new admin account (hitting return after each line):
    • mount -uw /
    • rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
    • shutdown -h now
  4. After rebooting you should have a brand new admin account. When you login as the new admin you can simply delete the old one and you’re good to go again!
The reason that the date is set to 1970 is probably that the pram battery needs charging or replacing.

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 have a macbook pro and I am "locked out" from updating software


Insert your Mac OS disk into the cd drive and restart while holding the C key to launch the system on the disk instead of your hard drive.
When you reach the desktop, look for the utilities menu and reset the master password.
You shouldn't need the existing password to do so.

In order to override/reset the root level password on your system you can boot up from a system disk (insert disk and restart holding down "C" key). If you don't have a system disk, there are other ways to do it: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20080414140636495

Trying to change my password, after that i cannot open it anymore


Boot your Mac from the CD/DVD (as if you were to install the system). Once in the desktop, select on the Menu > "Reset my password". That's it. Now you can set a new password or leave it blank.

Possible problems: One of your keys is nonfunctioning Your browser isn't up to date
For the key functioning, do a test of every key on your keyboard to make sure they all work.
For your browser, make sure that you're running the latest version of Safari. (Run Software Update by clicking on the Apple icon in the top left, then "Software Update...")
If all of your keys work, Safari is up to date, and you still have an issue - try running a different browser. You can pick up Firefox at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ or getfirefox.com
