SOURCE: The dreaded question mark???

It sounds as if your hard drive is damaged and is not mounting. As you are running OS 9 I suggest using Norton Systemworks and run it's disc repair facility Disc Doctor. This will make repairs to the hard drive to allow it to mount. (Unless the disc is too badly damaged). If this is the case you will need to replace the hard drive and re-install all your system and applications. If you haven't backed up your info, the damaged disc can be scanned and your files saved by a computer repair shop.

How to Reset Admin Password in Mac



  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.

    Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the disc yet.

    Note: The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  4. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  5. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

Hi. I turn on the mac and the screen says Mac OS X then there is Name and password. How can I get in to the main screen?


If you do not know the password for the user, you can reset it very easily:

  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.

    Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the disc yet.

    Note
    : The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  4. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  5. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

  8. Click the red button in the upper left corner to quit the application.
  9. Choose Quit Mac OS X Installer... from the Mac OS X Installer menu.
  10. Click Restart.

When turned on screen lights up with apple logo but nothing else happens


reboot while holding the option key down. It should show you available hard drives from which you can startup.
Choose the drive and then press return or enter.
Then restart.
If nothing happens, turn off the laptop and insert your Mac OS disk and then reboot while holding down the C key.
The computer will load the system on the disc instead of your hard drive. Then instead of reinstalling the system software, look at the top menu and find the Disk Utilities program and run a repair on your hard drive.
Then reboot without the disk in the drive.

It boots up but no operating system or desk shows up


What happens when you boot up? Do you get the flashing ? Folder icon or does it freeze on the apple logo or something else? Try starting in safe mode (startup while holding 'Shift' key) and see what happens.
If problems persist -
Next force the internal hard drive to be the startup disk (reboot holding 'D')
Still having problems? Try resetting PRAM (reboot & press Cmd+Opt+P+R. Hold until you hear 2nd chime)... see what happens, if no success do the NVRAM (reboot & Cmd+Opt+N+V)
If all that fails let us know and we'll look at the next level of options

If you've forgotten your password, you can reset it with the discs that came with your computer:

  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.

  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.

Harddrive does not boot up to desktop


It is the hard drive. The EXACT same thing happened to me. You will need to replace the hard drive. You can backup all the info onto another computer using a firewire cable as I did. Boot your computer and hit "apple" "T" while booting, a firewire logo should appear and bounce around the screen. Makes your computer a giant external hard drive.
