You are trying to do something that has been disallowed by the administrator,
To do so you have to have the Admin acces (Admin Password)

As you stated this has been used by someone else earlier, so you have to contact him.

If you cant do that, there is also one more solution. to remove the admin password.

To do so, THE BEST OF ALL is to download the Hirens boot CD, (This is the ultimate tools collection for you PC, and FREE)

Download here, and burn it on a CD, boot from it and goto the Password recovery menu. There are lot of tools in it.

If you don't want to go throught this long process (which i will not recommend, its very usefull CD)

Even though, the tool that this CD uses, and i'v also tested it can be downloaded here.
Its call NTPWD.

Just burn it on CD, or copy in the USB (Boot from CD or USB)

run ntpwd.exe ( it will ask you which account to remove the password ).
Kinda its done, if properly follwed the steps.

Mac loads and runs fine, but every time I try to update the programs on my Mac it keeps asking for a password, I don't know.


Which program were you trying to update? Are you trying to download and install new software (that is not from Apple App Store?) Are you running Mountain Lion (OSX 10.8)? The password needed is your administrator password.

MAC Book Pro unable to connect the wi-fi. Connection timed out er


Reset your wireless password/key. Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.

I have a seagate 300gb external h/drive plugged into my mac book pro but cannot seem to play movies on mac book from external..help!!


You didn't say how you are connecting the drive. with a MBP you should be able to play the movies if the drive transfer speed is enough. Try moving the movie onto the desktop and playing it, if that works, then it's a transfer speed problem. If not, then you probably need the right piece of software to run it. I'd try VLC which is an open source player that takes almost any content type.

Lost pass word


Start your computer from the original restore disk, once the installer comes up look for the Menu "Utilities" select the "Reset Password" menu item, you will then see a picture of your hard drive, click it and a list of names will appear, you can now reset the passwords for the users on the computer.

How to make it play the movie


I had the same problem playing video from a data disc, code 69-8007045d. I made the exact same video file play by (1) adding .avi file extension to the file name (i.e. "videofile" renamed: "videofile.avi") and (2) putting it in a folder with the exact same name (videofile.avi). Same video file, didn't have to transcode to .wmv which degrades vid quality. Simple solution, but it worked. This is also the key to displaying a picture file as the icon instead of the generic "filmstrip" pic that displays by default. Just name the picture file the same name as the video and folder (i.e. "video.avi"). This has even worked with divx and xvid encoded videos when I've tried. My guess as to why this happens is that MS doesn't want to be legally or financially responsible for their hardware being used to play protected content, which is also why the status code 69-8007045d doesn't appear anywhere on their official website. Good luck.
