You need the original install disks for you OS. Start the install process and then use the Password Reset tool to change the admin password. Once you are able to log in as admin, you should be able to see your old account in the System/Users folder. You should be able to directly access it, or you should be able to use the "Get Info" on the account's folder and change the permissions that way.

How to reset my pass word on my laptop it does not even give me the reset option on screen

BIOS passwords (at power on, before the operating system loads) can usually be removed / reset with help from customer support, assuming your laptop is not a stolen item and still is within support coverage / warranty.

Operating system passwords -- if using Windows (most likely) you can try logging in as "administrator" to see if you can reset your Windows user password. Otherwise, either remember it or wipe it. If you know your password but simply want to reset it, go to the control panel and pick "Users" and go from there.

How do I change my iMac's name?

This is a fun one. Two solutions provided... Easy and Full. Easy Solution, Take it to your local Applestore for a Genius appointment. They can be smug, but they should be able to help. if they are just toooo smug for you, or can't get to one for other reasons, then leave it alone, or your genius might not want to do it (this may be a possibility with good reason*) Full solution: Right now, I am assuming you know your way around a little bit. such as where to create a user account, etc... WARNING! to do this properly, this solution requires creating a ROOT User account, if you have a ROOT User, and are logged into it, the computer essentially thinks your GOD. It will do what you tell it to. it will obey! This is good and BAD! While it allows you to do things you normally could not... it also allows you to accidentally do things like delete all your data in one shot. Also, if anybody gets into this root user account, they then are the computers GOD. If this makes you nervous, and it should, leave things alone. If you really need to change things, and are willing to risk it. 0. Read all first... Understand all first! 1. Back Up!!!!!... If this goes south, your backup is your only chance to save data! 2. Create a RootUser Account... Use a strong password and never forget it... even if you delete the Root User account, the password is tied to the condition of have having one. Do not let anyone else have the password, or be able to figure it out! 3. Log into the Root user Account 4.Remove the User you want to change DO NOT DELETE!!! This is where people drive south! 5. rename the user folder to what you want (this is why you created a root user. permissions are ignored and it allows you to make the changes) user folders are 1 word all lower case version of user name if your user name is "Joe Smith" the name the folder "joesmith" 6. Create a new User Account with the new name and shortname (folder name) 8. it should argue that a folder name of such exists and would you like to use it any way. Yes you would ( this is when everything gets tied back together) 9. Log out, and log back into the correct User account 10. remove the Root User Account. * BTW, if I come off as Smug... I guess being an Ex - AMCT (AKA apple Genius) hasn't wore off. Too, if your local Genius does not want to do it, this is because they are trying to protect your data, and do not want to be culpable for it. Too, Apples policies, might not allow for it. When I was there a few years ago, doing this was in the dark grey areas of support. Not disallowed, but frowned upon. Sorry to say it, but the resposibility of your data is in your hands! Things can and will go wrong. BACK UP!

I can't find where to enter the code?

I assume you mean the address to access your Router. You simply need to open the web-browser of your choice (IE, Firefox, Chrome, ect.) and type in the Address bar where you would normally type an address like and type in the numbers
This should bring up a box asking for your user name and password. Provided you've never changed the default settings your user name and password should be something like
User: admin
Pass: password

Pass: password

User: admin
Pass: admin

If none of these work, simply go to google and type in "XXX routers default password" where XXX is the name of your router. (E.G. Linksys, Netgear, ect) Thank you and I hope this helps.

Need to know how to set right pass word

OK here's some of my tips to you. "If you are using Microsoft Software Operating System namely. -Microsoft Windows XP2 or XP3 professional or home use only. 1. Click the windows start button. 2. Goto settings then Click Control panel. 3. Select User accounts. (NOTE! once you click the user accounts it's automatically create a box to perform what specified account you want to choose. 4. Ex. For admin. (simply click the admin then change the information stored on it. Ex. i will change the password of my admin account. (simply click the specified account then click remove password then after removing the password you can enter a password again if you want to. but better don't put a password again if you'll do this action). But for anonymous use of pc. password are advisable to use. 5. If you have a problem with the other computer accounts. you can follow this steps again and again. Good Luck and God bless. I hope this steps will help you to solb your problem.

You can add the word 'single' in the bootloader at start up, which will boot into a root terminal. Then you can use the 'passwd' command to change the password, ex: passwd john <enter> to change the password for the username john.
