What kind of password lock? There are two kinds.... one asking for an admin password, the other asking for a firmware password. You can get around the admin password by booting the machine with the original install - recovery CD and resetting the password. The firmware password you can not get around.

Did you buy your MacBook used? Which MacBook did you buy, year and model?
QUOTE Thanks
