Question about Apple Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger for Mac

1 Answer

Password difficulty I entered my password on my OS X emac 10.4 and it keeps rejecting it. I had used the password earlier and it was fine. Then I added a program and restarted the program and my password was rejected. You should probably know that I bought the computer 2 years ago and this is the first time I've used it. We bought it so we could have a computer that was NOT connected to the internet.

How do i change my password and get a new password


If you lost windows password, you could enter into safe mode (F8 when booting up) to retrieve windows password while you forgot user account password, but when you forgot admin password, there is no way to change it, you need to use a software application to recover administrator password. A week ago, I forgot my Windows admin password. Last, I used Windows Password Seeker to recover my Windows password successfully. It's worth a try.

Forget password


To change password of an user account, we need to go to User Accounts panel in Control Panel, choose the user account, click on 'Change my password' link, type current password once and new password twice. Too lengthy a process isn't it? Here is handy tip to change Win XP passwords in DOS mode and believe me, it takes less than 5 seconds!! Let me share the hack with you all!

  1. Click on 'Start' and then on 'Run...'.
  2. Type 'cmd' (opens up the command prompt).
  3. Now type net user * (do not omit the spaces)
  4. You will get a prompt like .. Type a password for the user:
  5. Type the desired password and press Enter key. Also note that you wont see *****s as you type but don't worry.
  6. You will again get a prompt like .. Retype the password to confirm:
  7. Retype the password and press Enter key. Here too you wont see *****s as you type but don't worry.
Thats it!!! Oh no .. wait .. Did it cost you more than 5 secs? OK Try this ..


Another Solution

Computer passwords are like locks on doors - they keep honest people honest. If someone wishes to gain access to your laptop or computer, a simple login password will not stop them. Most computer users do not realize how simple it is to access the login password for a computer, and end up leaving vulnerable data on their computer, unencrypted and easy to access.
Are you curious how easy it is for someone to gain access to your computer? If so, read on to see the technique one might use to figure out your computer password.
Windows
Windows is still the most popular operating system, and the method used to discover the login password is the easiest. The program used is called Ophcrack, and it is free. Ophcrack is based on Slackware, and uses rainbow tables to solve passwords up to 14 characters in length. The time required to solve a password? Generally 10 seconds. The expertise needed? None.
3237188885_1527db4c72_m.jpgSimply download the Ophcrack ISO and burn it to a CD (or load it onto a USB drive via UNetbootin). Insert the CD into a machine you would like to gain access to, then press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down. Turn the computer back on and enter BIOS at startup. Change the boot sequence to CD before HDD, then save and exit.
The computer will restart and Ophcrack will be loaded. Sit back and watch as it does all the work for your. Write down the password it gives you, remove the disc, restart the computer, and log in as if it were you own machine.
Mac
The second most popular operating system, OS X is no safer when it comes to password cracking then Windows.
The easiest method would be to use Ophcrack on this, also, as it works with Mac and Linux in addition to Windows. However, there are other methods that can be used, as demonstrated below.
If the Mac runs OS X 10.4, then you only need the installation CD. Insert it into the computer, reboot. When it starts up, select UTILITIES > RESET PASSWORD. Choose a new password and then use that to log in.
If the Mac runs OS X 10.5, restart the computer and press COMMAND + S. When at the prompt, type:
fsck -fy
mount -uw /
launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist
dscl . -passwd /Users/UserName newpassword
That's it. Now that the password is reset, you can login.
Linux
Finally, there is Linux, an operating system quickly gaining popularity in mainstream, but not so common you're likely to come across it. Though Mac and Linux are both based on Unix, it is easier to change the password in Linux than it is OS X.
To change the password, turn on the computer and press the ESC key when GRUB appears. Scroll down and highlight 'Recovery Mode' and press the 'B' key; this will cause you to enter 'Single User Mode'.
You're now at the prompt, and logged in as 'root' by default. Type 'passwd' and then choose a new password. This will change the root password to whatever you enter. If you're interested in only gaining access to a single account on the system, however, then type 'passwd username' replacing 'username' with the login name for the account you would like to alter the password for.
Conclusion
There you have it - that is how simple it is for someone to hack your password. It requires no technical skills, no laborious tasks, only simple words or programs. The moral of the story? Encrypt your data to keep it safe. Don't use only a password, but actually encryption, such as Blowfish or AES-128. There are a number of programs that can do this - TrueCrypt for Windows, or the native encryption found on Ubuntu, creating a disk image in Mac, etc.

I forget username and passowrd in my MAC OS X Version 10.4.11,please findout the solution to restore my username and password.....


Did you lost the administrator password? There is a way to reset it. You will need the install disk in the resetting process. Please make sure you follow the steps accordingly.

From Mac OS knowledgebase:

Resetting the original administrator account password Follow these steps to reset a password when there is only one administrator account on the computer, or if the original administrator account needs a password reset. "Original" administrator account refers to the one that was created immediately after installing Mac OS X. If the original administrator password is known, that administrator account may be used to reset the passwords of other administrator accounts using the steps described above.
  1. Start up from a Mac OS X Install disc (one whose version is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed). Usually, you can start from the disc by putting it in your computer, restarting, and holding the C key. Or, put it in the computer and click the Install or Restore icon you see in the disc's main window (after which the computer will start from the disc without you needing to hold C). Or, you can use Startup Manager or the Startup Disk preference pane to select the Install disc.
  2. Choose a language, click the arrow button to continue, then choose Reset Password from the Utilities menu (or from the Installer menu, if using Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier). Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.

    Note
    : The default keyboard layout is U.S. English while started from the installation disc. If you use a keyboard layout other than U.S English, use the Input menu (the flag icon on the right side of the menu bar) to select the desired layout before typing a new password.
  3. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
  4. Select the user name of your original administrator account.

    Important: Do not select "System Administrator (root)". This is actually the root user. You should not confuse it with a normal administrator account.

  5. Enter a new password.
  6. Click Save.

Upgraded eMAC G4 to OS 10 and have display problem


You SHOULD be able to control the monitor adjustments in os 10. In the Displays section of the System Preferences, look for the "geometry" tab. Under this tab you should be able to control width and height so your display fills the entire screen.
If you still can't find it, try adjusting the resolution and refresh rates. Also use the "detect displays" button.
