Is it asking for a a keychain password or just the regualar password you may have to reset your password if its the regular password, and you just need to put in the 1st operating disc that came with the computer and hold down the C key when you hear the sound and hold it down till you see the apple symbol, then when it boots up select english and then the next one go to the top of the finder and click utilities and then change the password, then save everything and then quit the password changer and then quit the installation and then restart the computer.

Apple has a guide on resetting the administrator password here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?path=mac/10.4/en/mh655.html This one is for OS X 10.4 (Tiger) but the method is the same for newer versions. In older versions the only difference is that the reset password option mentioned in step 3 is located in the installer menu instead of the utilities menu.

Trouble downloading songs from G-3 I phone to powerbook g4


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

If you are experiencing issues with downloading songs from iPhone 3G to your Powerbook G4, there are a few steps you need to check:
Make sure your Mac OS X operating system version is up to date. The most current updates for the current 3 most common Mac OS systems out today: Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger: Mac OS X 10.4.11 (Current version) Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard: Mac OS X 10.5.8 (Current version) Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard: Mac OS X 10.6.6 (Current version)
If your present version of Mac OS X does not match the current version update listed above for your system, then click on the Apple menu icon in the upper left corner of your screen and select "About this Mac" to verify. • Then close that window and click on the Apple menu icon once again and select Software Updates andrun the updates.
• Once your Mac OS X has been updated to the most current version, then you will need to visit the link below, then download and install the current version iTunes Link: Download iTunes 10 for Mac (for 10.5 Leopard or higher) Link: Download iTunes 9.2.1 for Mac (for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or earlier)
• When you have the current version of iTunes on your Powerbook, then commence to connect your iPhone 3G with your Powerbook and sync your iPhone with iTunes.
I am providing these initial steps to you, due to the limited information I have from you regarding your technical issue, but will be glad to assist you further, if you are unable to resolve your issue with these provided steps.
I hope this helps.

Macbook air is locked and i don't know how to reset it?


font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.


If you are referring to locked in regards to your user administrator account, all you have to do is take your Mac OS X installation disc and run the Password Reset utility to reset your password and gain access back into your Macbook Air once again.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are some steps you can try to resolve the issue:

BOOT TO TIGER/LEOPARD or SNOW LEOAPRD DISK-
• Place your installation Disk (Tiger, Leopard or Snow Leopard) into your drive and
allow it to load.
• Restart your Mac
• As soon as you hear the Apple Chime, press the "C" key on your keyboard
and hold it.
• You will see a White Screen, Grey Apple first, do not release the C key until you
see a Spinning gear.
• Once you see that Spinning gear, release your C key and allow the disc to
continue loading

- RESETTING ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD-
(Works for both Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard))

• When the booting to the Mac OS X disc is completed, you will now be in the
Installer environment
• Enter to next page, look up on upper left corner you should see "Installer" near
the Apple menu.
• Two spaces over you should see Utilities. Click Utilities>Reset Password.

• Select your user name from the drop down list and reset your password.

• When you are done, simply exit the Reset Password and Installer and reboot.

• At the Login window, enter your new password and you should be back into your home profile.

Let me know if this helps!

Thanks!

I have macbook osx an im locked out , i have no info


By not being more specific, when you note that you are locked out of your Macbook, I would have to presume you are referring to your User Administrator account or you have a FileVault password which is prompted for, upon booting up and you have forgotten that password.

Not sure which could be the case, so I will 1st provide you steps for resetting your Administrator password with your Mac OS X installation disc and 2nd, provide you, a key Apple support link, for fixing the forgotten FileVault password (just in case this is the culprit, which is locking you out of your Macbook).

BOOT TO TIGER/LEOPARD DISK-
• Place your installation Disk (Tiger or Leopard I presume) into your drive and
allow it to load.
• Restart your Mac
• As soon as you hear the Apple Chime, press the "C" key on your keyboard
and hold it.
• You will see a White Screen, Grey Apple first, do not release the C key until you
see a Spinning gear.
• Once you see that Spinning gear, release your C key and allow the disc to
continue loading

- RESETTING ADMINISTRATOR PASSWORD-
(Works for both Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) and Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard))

• When the booting to the Mac OS X disc is completed, you will now be in the
Installer environment
• Enter to next page, look up on upper left corner you should see "Installer" near
the Apple menu.

• Two spaces over you should see Utilities. Click Utilities>Reset Password.
• Select your user name from the drop down list and reset your password.
• When you are done, simply exit the Reset Password and Installer and reboot.

• At the Login window, enter your new password and you should be back into your home User Administrator account.

Troubleshooting Password Problem OS 10.4.11


Follow these steps -

1. Start up from a Mac OS X Installation CD (one with a version that is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed on your Mac).
You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
2. From the Installer menu Choose "Reset Password" (if you have Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger this will be the "Utilities menu").
Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
3. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
4. Set the user name of your original administrator account.
Do not select "System Administrator (root)".
5. Enter new password.
6. Save.
7. Follow these instructions to set Keychain Access -

Booting from the install disk should give you the option to reinstall it. During that process there are settings to delete the contents of the drive to ensure a clean instal. Remember however that this will wipe any personal files from the Mac as well and so back everything important up to external drives.
