I have a very old G4 Power Mac. I am going to sell it for peanuts but I need to deauthorize my iTunes, etc. I don not remember my log in info for the Mac. It has been years since I knew it. How do I find it?

    Hi Mark,


    Two ways...


    1. Insert the Mac OS X Install disc, then restart the computer while holding the C key.

    2. When your computer finishes starting up from the disc, choose Reset Password from the Installer menu at the top of the screen. (In Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you must select your language first.)

    Important: Do not click Continue in the first screen of the Installer. If you do, you must restart from the disc again to access Reset Password.


    Reset OS X Password Without an OS X CD...




    Admin Hack...




    Starts up like the first time you buy a new Mac, but after filling in all that info again, you should have access to the computer and the other Users & files will still be there... give the new User a different name than an existing one.
