I recently acquired a Macbook Pro and to my surprise, when i set up the administrator account i managed to set up the password wrong. That means i spelled it wrong two times. The first when it asked me to write my password account, and the second when it tells me to confirm it. I can't believe i managed to pull that off. I know it was extremely stupid, but now i need help. It won't let me set up some programs without the password, and i cannot change the password without it asking me for the old one... What are my alternatives? What can i do? Because it would kill me to have to start a new account and have to start all over again. I already have a bunch of music and pictures and stuff i really don't want to lose. I know there's a way, i just need someone to tell me how i can reset my password? Thank a lot!

BIOS or Operating System's passwords are there for the purpose related to Security and Privacy to protect the legitimate owner of a machine. While there are many locations on the Internet that might help you learn about managing passwords for a machine's BIOS or Operating System, we a G2G do not assist in what amounts to hacking past a machine's Security and Privacy safeguards.

While such requests are often legitimate, and come from users who experience exactly the kind of problem that you post, we have no way of determining legitimate vs. not legitimate, therefore we do not respond to such requests.
