I recently bought a macbook pro. I set it up last night, and i know i have the correct administrator (myself, the only user) and password, yet for some reason when i go to type my sername and password, it says it's incorrect. Therefor, i need to figure out how to change my administrator password or username, or find out where i can find the info to tell me what it is, incase i typed either in incorrectly.

MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012), iOS 6.0.2
