What do you mean by “lost”? Have you checked the keychain? Keychain FirstAid might help. Of course, if you are near an Apple Store, you can always access their (annoyingly-named) Genius Bar.

I looked in the keychain it’s not thair, and the ppl in my local atmac cost a fortune and in truth they don’t know very much.

@Melon they might not know much but I bet they do know where to lay their hands on a set of install discs

@lightlyseared Yes, but there is one other thing.. You see this is a laptop payed for my the com my dad works for, he got a new one but you know how things are in this type of thing and no one can know that I am using it… So I can’t realy take it to atmac as we know them well.

You will have a new admin account but you can still get into the old data.
