If you have access to any macintosh operating system disk, you can change the admin password. I would recommend checking ebay if you cant get a hold of one.

I have apple i book g4 i forgot my password.

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.

Hi i let myu boyfriend go online i asked him not to go on any game sites and download from them., i come home and turn on laptop and it is soooo slow., it takes at least half hour to work and when i open...

Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories
Click System Tools
Click System Restore

Use System Restore to "restore my computer to an earlier point in time",
i.e., pick some date/time before your UNTRUSTWORTHY EX-boyfriend started to use your computer.

This "time-travel" should work. Then, do a "full" virus-scan, to see if any viruses are still present.

I have a ibook G4 mac laptop i lost my password ,and i want to know how can i reset my paasword. i have already try to put disc 1 and 2 to reset it and it did not work. what can i do now since that did not...

well what i found out is there is only 1 disc, and when you look at the manual for how to reset your password they leave out the pages that you are looking for so you can go to some tech guy  so he can charge you $100.00 to 200.00 buck to reset it, and the funny thing about it i had the answer all along it was on the disc in little small letter at the end of the disc. so if you need to know more find somebody with that disc or e.mail me.

Sekondhand G4,no disc,no password.

Try hitting the ENTER key when prompted for the password. Let us assume the seller was kind enough to remove the password before selling the Mac. If you are not in luck, try borrowing a System disk from a friend (most Mac Users are really friendly), and maybe they offer you a copy of the CD/DVD. After booting from the CD, you can reset the password easily.

Without being able to answer your Account Security Question or knowing the password to the account you will more than likely have no way to LEGALLY get into the account, unless someone was to hack the account, which i do not encourage or will do. I would try contacting Yahoo! Support and let them know they will return your e-mail within 48 hours.... They usually will work with you on problems like this. Try it! That's the best way to do it...As well as keep trying to guess the middle name or ask around and find out...hacking is risky and trying to download the programs yourself can end up being fake and put trojan horses/viruses(malware) in your computer that make a mess! Thanks!!!
