If you have original disks you can insert disk and hold c key until it boots, pick password reset after boot.

Reset imac password


It depends which password yo want to reset. If it is the Mac OSX password then you will need to go through some linux commands. If it's efi i.e bios password than, you need a professional Apple service centre. You will need to boot your imac with osx disc and click on utilities and then reset password.

I have a powerbookG4 and the caps is stuck on and when i try to type password it types what it wants, wont delete. i noticed the date is incorrect, it says december 1969. i also forgot my master password....


1. Obtain a Mac OSX install disc (buy one from apple or try Ebay) 2. Insert the disc then click on the "Install Mac OS" icon. Then click the restart button. 3. DONT INSTALL! Just click through enough of the windows to get to the regular set of choices on the menu bar. One of those choices is UTILITIES and one of the choices there is RESET PASSWORD.
Simple, but you should know that anyone with a Mac OSX install disc can gain access to your computer.


I got this from another post by gvape. This will work to reset your password so that you can reset the time and date. If this make no difference to your keyboard issues I would look at replaceing the keyboard.

Let me know how you get on.

Wireless g router won't accept my password on OSX


Assuming you don't have access to the admin of the router.

press and HOLD the reset button with a dull pointed object for 10 seconds (it is next to the power plug) you will have access to the setup wizard with a connected PC's browser at
HTTP//192.168.2.1

use a known security arrangement or non at all for just the test phase to make sure all can communicate with another.

Can't eject Install CD Mac OSX Panther


Hi GInette, sorry to hear you are having problems,
here is how you eject a disk that is stuck in the optical drive of a Mac.
Shut down the Mac.
press the power on button
VERY QUICKLY, press the mouse button, the trackpad button and hold it down firmly until the disk ejects.
This is a built-in hardware command independent of your system and always works when doe right, unless the optical drive is no longer recognized by the Mac or if something is inhibiting it's ejection.
Good luck

Mac wont turn on


G5 will not boot off of OS9. Since you are more of a pc guy, think of it like this, you buy a used newer pc meant to run Vista, and you are trying to load Windows 98 on there. You can run any of the OSX flavors on there...
Depending on your Model (scroll to bottom) of G5 you need to be running...
2003 -> at least 10.2 Jaguar 2004 -> at least 10.3 Panther 2005 -> at least 10.4 Tiger
10.5 Leopard is Apple's newest operating system and it can be run on any of these models. You need to buy a retail copy (has drivers for every model) unless you buy exactly the right system disk for that specific model.
OS9 can be installed and run inside of OSX using something called Classic mode. This would be like running a virtual XP Pro inside of Vista.

User password


from apple:"From page 31 of the "Welcome to Mac OS X" booklet:
If you forget your password for your computer, insert the Mac OS X CD and restart your computer while holding down the C key on the keyboard. When the Installer appears, choose Reset Password from the Installer menu and follow the onscreen instructions.
Tip: Resetting an account password doesn't affect other kinds of passwords that might be forgotten, such as your email account password, .Mac password, secure server , Internet access password (if you have one), Keychain passwords, or Mac OS X 10.3 Panther's master password. "

If that does not work, follow the indications at the bottom of this page: Macintosh OS: Lost Admin Password

Have just spoken to Lexmark . . . the X1270 is restricted to only work with Windows so there are no Mac drivers.
