Yesterday my hard drive crashed. I still had my older drive from my previous mac so I took the fried one out and put the old one in. After installing snow leopard, everything works fine, except an odd problem. I can use the administrator’s name and password to log on to the computer but trying to unlock a system preference page doesn't work. Also the prompt that comes with installing software doesn't accpet my username or password. I've reset them both in system preferences and in single user mode. I've used command R and typed resetpassword in the terminal and tried everything. Is this problem due to the old HD? Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I can't install anything or make changes to my computer.
