OK I have a powerbook G4 and I forgot the admn password. Believe it or not, I actually used to remember it (heh heh) when I last used the laptop about 2 years ago. I do have the original discs though. I have read up on resetting the password. I was relieved to find out the process of resetting the admin password is simply enough as it was explained, but that just doesn't happen to me when I tried it.

I put in the install CD and clicked on Install Mac OS X (10.3.4) icon and the restart screen comes up (strictly by the book). Stevie is my Hero. I click on "RESTART" and DUH!!!!! it asks me for the password I am trying to "RESET"!!!!!!! LOL Thank you very much StevieBoy. Genius loves company.

If I can get some help with this, and how to FIX my problem to reset my admin password, I would really appreciate it, otherwise I am going to donate my brain to science (while I'm still alive) since it's doing me no good up to this point. LOL

Thank you

After reading up on this some more, I was able to reset my admin password. Everyone here is so in love with me now, that I feel like an Oscar Myer Weiner.
