My apologies for placing this question in 2 places...

Last night I reset my master password for accessing entry onto my MacBook

with Snow Leopard installed.

I must have hit a wrong key in my password, (fat fingered), and now, when I open the laptop,

It will not let me past the login page, with my name, and the blank space for the password.

I have tried every configuration of what I thought I entered as the password with no luck.

I reinstalled the original Snow Leopard disc I bought from Apple, and it is now stuck in the laptop.

(There seems to be no button to eject the disc).


Can someone please, please help?


In advance, thank you so very much.

MacBook, iOS 6.0.1
