How to rightfully, reset an admin's password at start up log in.


If you know the current administrator password, you can change it by going to System Preferences: Accounts.
If you've lost the password, you need Disk 1 of the OS install disk set. Start up the computer and put the disk in the optical drive. Restart the computer and hold down the option key immediately after the chime until a disk icon appears on the display. Wait a few seconds more until the optical disk icon appears. Click on this, then on the arrow to boot up from the install disk.
When the OS installer appears, go to the Reset Password... item in the Apple menu and follow the directions there. (Select the administrator account from the pull-down menu.) If your install disk is not specifically for an eMac, or is made for an eMac with a different graphics chip, the display quality may be poor, but you should still be able to pick out what you need to see from the Password applet.

Reset password admin


I could suggest you search for this under "Apple password reset" since I've written the solution several times in the last month, but for you, I'll do it again:
You need to find Disk 1 of the operating system install disk set. The install disk set doesn't need to be the one that came with the computer, so long as it is OS 10.2 to OS 10.5 (PPC). However, some install disks are not compatible with the resolution setting of the graphics chip in some eMacs, so you may have difficulty reading the display.
The reset procedure is as follows: Turn on the eMac, open the optical (CD or DVD) drive and place Disk 1 in it, then close the drive. Restart the eMac. As soon as the startup chime sounds, immediately hold down the option key and continue to hold it until a disk icon appears on the screen. Wait until the optical disk icon also shows up. Click on the optical disk icon, then click the arrow button. This will boot up the computer to the install disk.
When the computer boots up to the install program, DO NOT DO ANYTHING IN THE INSTALL PROGRAM. Look in the Apple menu for the Reset password... item. You should see a selector menu for the account(s) on the computer. Select the administrator account and enter the new password (it can be left blank if you know nobody else will ever mess with your computer). Confirm the password, then quit and restart without holding down any keys.
The computer should restart normally and you can log in to the administrator account with the new password. So long as you remember the new password, you can change it at any time using the "Accounts" pane in System Preferences.

I have a emac powerpc G4 i cant find how to open cd player no eject button


If you hold down the mouse button, and then turn on the eMac, the drive will pop out, and you can put in a CD. Also, you can hold the F12 button to eject. Even if there isn't a dedicated Eject key on the keyboard, you can eject this way.

When I put a cd in the cd player on the emac it growls and growls, but either does not mount or if it does and I click on the icon, the program will not play. All the time growling.


Thank God this is for free!!!!!! Friend, your optical drive is a toaster. Look into getting it changed as quickly as possible. And leave me four thumbs up. I hate it when a good Mac Mechanic won't jus show up and tell the truth.

What do I do if every time i turn my emac on there is only a flashing file in the center of the screen and no mouse courser


I have a possible solution, but it would be helpful to know what operating system you have on your eMac. Mac OS X is the Mac operating system. Do you have Mac OS X 10.2, 10.3, or 10.4, for example.
Solution:Do you have your system discs for your eMac or an Mac OS X installation disc? You'll need it to fix the problem. Use the newest disc you have.
WARNING: There is a _slight_ risk of loss of your data (pictures, documents, etc.) when reinstalling your operating system. Backing up your precious photos and other documents is critical!

1. If the eMac is on, hold down the power button until it turns off. 2. Turn the eMac while holding down the mouse button. 3. When the CD/DVD drive opens, put the system disc in (use disc #1 if you have more than one disc). 4. Turn the machine off again by holding down the power button. 5. Turn the machine on while holding down the C key on the keyboard to boot from CD (or DVD). 6. Wait until the eMac boots from your system disc. 7. You should see the install screen. There should be an Options button. Click the Options button. 8. One of the choices will be to do an "Archive and Install". Go ahead and do an "Archive and Install", which will reinstall the operating system but leave your photos and other files. See cautions above. **Do _NOT_ click the option to ERASE the hard drive** or you'll lose all your photos, etc. 9. Once it's all done (expect it to take an hour or more), you should be able to use your computer normally.
Good luck. I hope this is understandable. If you need more help, please post again. *Please rate me if this helped.* Thanks!
