HOW TO RESET THE PASSWORD ON MY MACBOOK UNIBODY ...I FORGOT THE PASSWORD


If it is the firmware password protection, then the only way to have that reset is by taking the macbook to an authorized repair center or Apple Store.

If the issue is with the operating system password, then you'll need the original system CD that came with the Macbook. Power-on the Macbook and immediately insert the system install disk and then press and hold the C key down until the circular icon stops spinning.

You'll then be able to select Disk Utilities that you can use to reset your password.

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.

Forgot admin password


From the Apple Support Forum for MacBook (yes, 3 generations later than yours.)
"With the original install discs that came with the MacBook, you can reset the administrator's password. Follow the instructions for "Resetting the original administrator account password" in this document: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1274"
