Since you don't know the administrator password then your going to need your original Mac OS X install disc.

On that page go to:
Resetting the original administrator account passwordThat will explain how to reset it with the MAC OS X install disc. If you don't have the disc, you'll need to get a hold of Apple and get a hold of a Genius to get that password off of there.

How to upgrade my macbook pro to Yosemite


Apple has made this feature free, and fairly simple. You should first make sure you have a backup of your hard drive on an external drive (easiest to complete with the TimeMachine feature of your Macbook Pro).

  • Open the App Store app and select the Featured or Top Charts tab. You can search for Yosemite, although Top Charts will usually list it as #1 in the Top Free apps.

  • Click on the Download button for Yosemite wherever it appears (either in the search list, or in Top Charts). Follow the prompts.

  • Depending on your connection speed and the specs of your macbook pro, the installation will take one to four hours.
    • Of course, you will have to have an Apple ID to download anything from the App Store.
    • If you don't have an Apple ID and don't know how to get one, please ask another question on FIXYA.

If you get the Apple logo with spinning lines underneath it but not getting past this stage then the hard disc is being seen but something is failing in the boot process, causing it to stall.
Most likely this is a case of incorrect file permissions which is easily solved.
There are 2 ways of doing it, depending on whether you have an OS X install disc to hand or not.
IF YOU DO HAVE AN OS X INSTALL DISC:
Insert the disc into the DVD drive, power on the Mac on after hearing the chime hold down the C key. This forces the Mac to boot from the DVD. After a few minutes you'll get a screen asking which language you wish to use as the main language; select English or whichever is appropriate for you.
On the next screen the Installer box will appear. Ignore this and instead on the menu at the top of the screen select Utilities -> Disc Utility. Once this has loaded select your hard drive on the left hand pane and then first click "Repair Disc" and once that has finished click "Repair Permissions".
Once these have completed successfully reboot and OS X should load up fine.
IF YOU DON'T HAVE AN OS X INSTALL DISC:
This is a bit more tricky. You have to boot into single user mode. To do this power on the machine, and after the chime hold down Cmd (Apple key) and S together. The screen will turn black and an a load of white text will start appearing and scrolling upward as the system loads. Basically this is what happens behind the Apple startup logo, only in single user mode rather than multiple user mode.
After a few moments the text should stop scrolling and you should see a prompt which looks similar to:
localhost: / root#:
Note that localhost is the name of your computer so will possibly be different to "localhost". At this point type the following EXACTLY including spaces, capitalisation and dashes etc:
/sbin/fsck -fy
now press enter, then type:
/sbin/mount -uw /
now press enter then type:
diskutil repairPermissions /
and press enter. It may take a few minutes to repair the disc's permissions, but once complete you should have the 
localhost: / root#:

prompt again. Now type:
reboot
and hit enter. The system will then reboot and should boot into OS X without issue.
