I have a new MacBook pro purchased a couple of months ago before establishing wifi service. I had started it up but didn't remember putting in any password at that time. Apparently I did and must have hit the caps lock button or misspelled something because I can't enter the password properly. Now I want to start loading software but can't because I don't have the right password.

How do I change the password to gain access to my own computer.

What version of OS X are you running ?

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
