Question about Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook
If you have a Mac OSX install disk you can actually reset the password without losing all of your info on the computer. This should also help you with your username: With your MacBook on, insert the disk. When the popup comes to the screen asking if you want to install just CLOSE out of that box. Now turn your laptop off. Next, power it back on & as soon as you hear the 'chime' **HOLD DOWN THE OPTION BUTTON** or it won't work. It will say 'Preparing Installation' so you'll have to wait for a bit. **IMPORTANT** when that's finished, you'll see a Welcome window. Look at the VERY TOP of your screen and click on UTILITIES. In the drop down menu click on RESET PASSWORD. It will give you the option to click on your MacBook Hard Drive and other options. Only click on the MACBOOK HARD DRIVE (or Macintosh HD). below that it will allow you to choose the user that you want to change the password for (this should include the username). Type in any password you like twice then a password hint then click save. This will allow you to get into the profile. hope this helps. Don't forget to vote if it did!
