Just bought mac air. set up picture and password. turned off. turned on wont accept password! so frustrating !

Could be as simple as you have the caps lock on, the password is case-dependent.

If not, you can reset your password by booting up the mac with the system disk (usualy disk 1 of the instal disks supplied) hold down the c key on your keyboard once it has booted up go to the menus and you will see a change the password item, use this to change the password. Once you have changed it quit out of the install disk and restart Hope this helps.

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.
