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!

My apple laptop MacBook 13 has a message on the screen that is prompting me to enter a username and password. I have never set up a username and password so how do i bypass that page? or what can i enter...


Apparently someone gained access to your Macbook and enabled the password login feature of the operating system.
The login window that is displayed has a button for "Forgot Password". Click this button to see whether the person that set the password lock provided a cute hint for the password.

If they did not provide a hint, I would question anyone that has recently had the opportunity to access your Macbook to see whether they set the password lock. They would have the password.

I cant not login in too my users i forgot my password


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

If you are unable to gain access via the password to login to your Mac OS X desktop, you are going to reset your password.

What you will need to do is use the Mac OS X restore (Disk 1) or the Mac OS X installation disk which came with your Macbook Pro.

Now perform this process:

* Insert your install disc
* Reboot your Macbook Pro

* Press the C key on your keyboard and hold until you see the white screen, grey apple, and eventually the spinning gear.

* Release the C key when you see the spinning gear

* When you reach the Mac OS X install environment, click past the language screen.

* From the Installer Menu bar select "Utilities" and then "Reset Password".

* Within the Reset Password utility, select the User Account you need access to.

* Reset the password.

* Quit the Reset Password utility when you have reset and confirmed the new password

* Quit the Installer and restart your Mac..

* At the log in window, enter your username and newly reset password. You should now be able to successfully log in. * I hope this helps.

Regards,

Cant login never had username or password if i did i forgot


Depending on which revision you have there are two possibilities

Default Username is: admin
Default Password is: password
or
Default Username is: admin
Default Password is: admin

If neither of these work - you may have setup a new username and password and forgot - on the router you will see a reset point - reset the router to factory defaults and the username and passwords above will now work.

If this helped you then please help me and vote kindly, thank you.
