Re: Setting a Password

Under the extreme left of the tool bar, find the blue apple.
Under that, choose "System Preferences"
Choose "Security"
Click in the circle that says "require password to wake..."

When you installed OSX, you will have created a Username and Password. That will be the password you will use to get past the screensaver, if set, or a blank screen if not.

Try going into safe mode by pressing F8 when you turn your computer on it will keep beeping just keep pressing F8 and once your in sage mode you should see your user name click on Other and type in administrator and that should let you in to reset your password for your account. If that does not work try this software

Override Password

You probably have set the settings that requires a password immediately after the screen goes to sleep or when screen saver kicks in.
Goto: System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General... and untick the setting "Require password....." or change the setting to allow for some more time.

Computer is locking me out. Asks for password but can't enter one because wants password to open lock on keychain.

First, make sure the CAPS LOCK is not on, then try to access it through safe mode using the Administrator Account. If that doesn't work, as a last resort, you can use a friends PC to burn a Password Recovery CD from this website:

Make sure you follow the walkthrough to a T, as anything changes made could mess it up.
