View Full Version : Macbook: changed system password

Ok I picked up a used Macbook and changed the user name and password promptly. Now I am unable to get on the computer using the exact username/password. To break in do I need to phone Apple, or boot off an OS disk?

so you changed the password and now it wont let you log on?

If you don't have any important stuff on it yet, just reinstall.

I am reinstalling the OS. Nope, just picked it up hours ago and changed the pw but somehow it wouldn't let me on.
