Hi


Find the Mac OS X install CD or DVD that came with your Mac or the one that you used to install Mac OS X. Insert it into the machine. Then, from the  menu, choose Restart. As the Mac starts up again, hold down the letter C key, which starts the Mac from the CD/DVD and launches the Mac OS X installer.


On the first installer screen, Choose Reset Password from the installer menu. When the Password Reset screen appears, click the hard drive that contains Mac OS X. From the first pop-up menu, choose the name of your account . Now make up a new password and type it into both boxes. Click Save, Close the window and Restart


hope that helps if not contact apple support for free phone support


have a nice day 🙂
