  1. i found this floating around, hope it helps, let me know please
Start up from a Mac OS X Install CD (one whose version is closest the the version of Mac OS X installed). You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
  1. Choose Reset Password from the Installer menu (or Utilities menu in Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
  2. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  3. Set the user name of your original administrator account.
    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.

I forgot my windows logon password of my laptop. What should i do to get access to my laptop, then?


I think probably the easiest and safest wayfor you is remove your windows password with Windows Password Seeker. I found it at about.com PC support channel last week, and used it to remove the lost passwordwithin 5 minutes. Importantly, the useful tool no need to reinstall Windows. It's worth a try.

I forgot my password and when i turn my computer on it has a black screen and a blue box in the middle ask for current password , when i try a password it tells me that password check fail with a white box...


Try administrator with no password to log on. Sometimes the default administrator account has not been set a password.

You can reset a lost or forgot Windows password with 4 methods below:

1. Another valid administrator account which can normally log on.

2. A password reset disk or a repair disc.

3. Third-party software to create a bootable password reset CD/DVD or USB, like Windows Password Breaker.

4. Re-install. Will lose data.
