Question about Computers & Internet
When i type in my password to log onto the laptop the login box shakes and does not accept my password!
Step 1: Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD.
hardest part of this technique may be laying your hands on a Mac OS X
Install CD when you need one. Use a version that is close the the
version of Mac OS X you have installed.
Hold the C key as the computer starts to boot from the CD.
When the installer starts, choose your language, and you'll proceed to the welcome dialog.
Step 2: Choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu. Tip: In previous versions of Mac OS X (10.2 and 10.3), you can find the Resent Password option under the Installer menu instead.
Step 3: Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually a reference to the root user. Do not confuse it with a normal administrator account.
