Does anyone know how many chaaracter my mac password can be up to ? I forgot my password and my trackpad and mouse is broken so I can't use Command S to make a new one and I'm just trying to figure out what the password requirements were in 2010? any help would be much appreciated I have another macbook but I would really like to get the other one up and running again as a desktop with a mouse and keyboard. Thanks.
edit: trackpad and keyboard don't work it took a fall two years ago when my girlfriend dropped it I can only start it using the s key after power up and after it turns on the keyboard and trackpad do not function.
