Re: can't get into computer

Find the CDs that came with the laptop when you bought it, and reinstall Windows. Formating means that you completly erased the hard drive so there is no information on it and it is unable to start up. Just reload Windows (or Mac OS) and reinstall the drivers and stuff that came with the laptop, and your good to go. Good luck!

If you have original disks you can change your password back to what you had. But have you tried your password with no caps lock and caps lock. Passwords are case sensitive.
You can easily change password. Put in original disk, restart and hold down C, once it has come up with languages say continue. Top bar appears and in that bar as a drop down is reset password. Close out once you have changed, restart and you will be ready to enter your new password.

I for got my password

Boot from your system installation DVD. When you see the menu bar, choose Utilities, then Reset Password. Follow the instructions to reset your password. Resetting your password in this manner will require you to abandon and re-create your password keychain, since it is locked with the old password and cannot be reset.

How do I unlock my macbook,I forgot my password

  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue,
  3. Mac OS X v10.6 or later: Choose Password Reset from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.5 or v10.4: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu.
    Mac OS X v10.3: Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu.
