    Not sure if it's the same on Snow Leopard (I have Tiger) When you open Date & Time in System Preferences the default is checked: "Set Date & Time Automatically" If you uncheck that box - can you edit the time settings?

How to change date


Go to Preferences and click on Date & Time.
Default is to keep date&time from remote. Deselect that and you can input your own time/date.

We'll assume this is legal.

Setting time, date on power book g4


I'm taking it that you are running system 10 so go to system preferences under the apple menu, then go to date and time under System. Go to time zone and allow the time zone to be set automatically and then go to date and time and set the date and time automatically. If you want to set the date yourself you can uncheck the set date and time automatically and then select the date and then the time using the up and down arrows. Hope this helps.

I need to unlock my settings and i can not locate my mac OS X install disc


I am assuming that you don't know the password for the administrator account on the laptop which will allow you to unlock the settings. Unfortunately the only way to change the admin password is to re-install the OS. Seeing that you don't have the disc you will have to purchase one. The Snow Leopard OS disc is available from Amazon.com for just $40 here. Once the disc arrives simply insert the disc and follow through the steps to re-install the OS. More detailed instructions on installing Snow Leopard here. Hope this helps! Please rate my answer if you have time! :)

I have a powerbookG4 and the caps is stuck on and when i try to type password it types what it wants, wont delete. i noticed the date is incorrect, it says december 1969. i also forgot my master password....


1. Obtain a Mac OSX install disc (buy one from apple or try Ebay) 2. Insert the disc then click on the "Install Mac OS" icon. Then click the restart button. 3. DONT INSTALL! Just click through enough of the windows to get to the regular set of choices on the menu bar. One of those choices is UTILITIES and one of the choices there is RESET PASSWORD.
Simple, but you should know that anyone with a Mac OSX install disc can gain access to your computer.


I got this from another post by gvape. This will work to reset your password so that you can reset the time and date. If this make no difference to your keyboard issues I would look at replaceing the keyboard.

Let me know how you get on.

My Mac laptop connects to my wireless modem very very slowly. this is a recent problem


Here are a couple things to look at:
A.) Make sure your Mac's software is up-to-date. 1. Click the Apple menu in the upper-left corner of the screen. 2. Click "Software Update". 3. Click the install button (when it comes up).
B.) Are you using the latest OS? If you have a MacBook or MacBook Pro, you should be using Mac OS X 10.6 or at least 10.5. If you have an iBook or PowerBook (older Macs), you should be using at least 10.4.
C.) Also, have you changed the location of your laptop? Is it farther away from the wireless base station? Have you changed security settings on the device?
D.) Have you tried a different wireless router? Sometimes routers are quirky. I know that this one requires spending money. That's why it's at the end. Maybe you can borrow one from a friend.
Good luck! If this helps you solve your problem, please rate and recommend me. If not, please post again for more ideas.
