    Unhappy lost password and no start up disc
    I acquired a MacBook Pro OS X (legally) but I have no password. I can't get info on what version of OS X it is, but believe the mac to be about 2 years old.
    I have no start up disc. Can I somehow change the password and use this laptop?

    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Ask whoever you purchased it from, or who gave it to you, for the system install discs as they are vitally important. You can try this suggestion:-

    If it is firmware password protected not even the original discs will help - send it back.
