Well it's either hacking that password or installing a new version of MacOS. Reinstalling macos is the faster and cleaner solution. If you don't want to do it yourself, maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party Macbook Repair Services.

How do I factory reset my mac book os x please help



Step 1

To start, make sure that all of your files are backed up elsewhere. When you revert your MacBook Pro back to factory settings, you will also be wiping out all of the data on your hard drive. If there is anything you want to keep, take the time to move it all onto an external hard drive.

Step 2

Once your files are backed up, shut down your MacBook Pro. Plug it into the AC adapter, and then boot it back up. Finally, press and hold “Command-R” (the “Command” and “R” keys at the same time) to start the restore process. Hold these keys until the Apple logo appears on the screen, and then release them. You will be taken to an alternative boot screen with a “Mac OS X Utilities” menu.

Step 3

In order to complete a system restore, you will need to connect your computer to the Internet. Select “Wi-Fi” from the Utilities menu and find the router you will be using. Enter your Wi-Fi username and password to connect.

Step 4

Depending on which version of OS X you are using, your Utilities menu will be slightly different. Look for either “Internet Recovery” or “OS X Recovery,” and select whichever one you find. This should present you with a “Reinstall OS X” option. Click on it, and then wait as your MacBook Pro connects to the Internet and gathers information on your laptop from Apple servers.

You may be prompted to provide your Apple account information, including username and password. If so, provide it. In any case, this process will eventually reach the point where your MacBook downloads the latest version of OS X, as well as the standard programs that Apple includes pre-installed on every laptop. Your hard drive will then be automatically formatted, and the computer will restore itself to factory settings.

Step 5

Once the reinstallation process is completed, you can either restart your computer, provide your Apple ID information, and start copying your files back over to the computer from your external hard drive, or you can turn the computer off and go about selling it to a new owner.

My Macbook pro scree has flickered and gone


It's usually the inverter and not the backlight. You can replace it yourself, it's not that hard.

Fixya.com is a good place to get started. They've got really user friendly guides that will help you from start to finish. Check it out so you know what you're up against.

Otherwise a local Apple tech via craigslist is probably the cheapest route. Or Applecare if that's still a possibility.

I have bought an Apple Mac notebook but am having problems accessing the internet. I think I have inadvertently changed the password to the wireless router as I have succesfully conected my main computer...


This is a confusing report. If you are successfully connecting two other computers to the router using the original router password, why can't you connect your MacBook Pro to the router using the same password? Or is it that the other two computers "know" the original password but you don't?
If one of the other two computers is a Mac, use the Keychain Access utility to look up the stored password for the router.
If not, use one of the other two computers to access the router's configuration screens directly and obtain the password that way.

PC laptop will connect to the internet MacBook Pro Won't


Check your router's IP address from the Compaq machine. Get a command prompt and type ipconfig .all
Then wright down the IP settings.
Check the IP settings of the Macbook Pro. Adjust settings. You can give a Static IP also. If needed. But you have to set the default gateway -Enter previouse IP settings for those.
Check ur Wi-Fi settings also.
