I need a way of resetting a password on a laptop I haven't used in a while. I can't gain access to it, so is there a way I can burn your recovery disk on my HP and then use it on my Macbook Pro?


There's a "Change Password" utility on the install disk that the computer came with. If you don't have the install disk, there's another way, but it's a bit tricky...
Boot into single-user mode by pressing Command-S when the computer boots up Type the following: fsck -fy mount -uw / launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist dscl . -passwd /Users/{username} {password} reboot
make sure you replace {username} with the targeted user and {password} with the desired password.

There are two options you have. You can either acquire an OS (Operating System) disc to reformat the drive and reinstall the OS or you can return it to first user using the Single User boot mode.
The first option is easiest and erases their data so you don't have to worry about it being there.
The second option requires knowing some basic terminal commands.Final note: Have you tried just pressing enter on the login screen? Many times people don't have passwords but it will still ask for them.

How do I set up a password so that no one can log


Go to system preferences then to accounts under "My Account" box you will see the login items panel click on this (you will need your password for this) then on the right hand side at the top you will see automatic login click on you account name then go up to disabled and this will turn off the automatic login. Then you can choose as to whether you want a list of users or your name and password. I normally choose list of names as it means you do not need to remember your login name, Hope this helps.
