Access my password

If it's your windows password you've forgot, this situation is recoverable. You need to make a PASSWORD RESET DISK, which you will have to google for on the internet. You will probably require your Windows COA 25 character code from the underside of your laptop/back of PC. Instructions from MicroSoft are here:
That was for Vista but the procedure is similar for XP/7/8 I believe.
Obviously you will have to borrow another computer with similar OS OR get a friend to make you one.Once done, put in CDROM and reboot (set reboot frm CDROM in BIOS if necessary). BIOS is got by pressing F1 or F2 or other key (google it) depending on your model. Good Luck

When i turn it on it wont stop loading and after about 10 mins it turns off

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

Try running a Disk Repair with Disk Utility using your Mac OS X installation disc or restore disc (which came with your Macbook)

font.f1 {font: 13.0px 'Myriad Pro'}

Insert your Mac OS X Startup disk
•Reboot your Mac
•At the Apple Chime, press the C key and hold it until you see a White screen, gray Apple and eventually a Spinning gear.
• Release the C key only after you see the Spinning gear.
•Mac will boot from the startup disk to the Installer environment
• From the Installer Menu bar, click Utilities > Disk Utility and open up Disk Utility application.
• Click on on the hard drive at the top of the window in the left sidebar and
• Select "Repair Disk"
**Let Disk Utilities run this repair the disk until completion
• At the end of this process, reboot your Mac

See if that process helps bring your Macbook up to the normal desktop.

If it does not, use the SMC reset procedure.

The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is usually on the logic board of your Mac computer.

It is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

• If the computer is on, turn it off.
• Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the computer's
• Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and then
release the button.
• Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.
• Press the power button to restart the computer

This should help resolve the issue for you. If it does not however, just let me know.

Thank you.

Trying to reinstall my wireless router following to steps on the start up disk but it keeps aksing me to put in a pass work so when i do it ask again an again i hqave even tryed the defalt pass word and no...

I would suggest rebooting the whole router. Clear out the settings completely and start again. To clear the router on the back or the router there is a tiny reset button. You will need to use a paperclip hold the button down for 5 sec then run through the setup disk again it should accept you new password this time.
Good Luck
