    I was given a G3iMac OSX, but the only problem is that the person who put in the password has passed on. I was given a few to try, but no luck. I was also told it could be bypassed, and if any one here can help me out, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Model M5521.

    I also do not have CD's with the computer.

    Thanks,

    Will

    That's such a powerful trick... it really should be a better kept secret in my opinion!

    If I was a mod I would delete this thread to be honest. Too much power for the masses to wield.

    Weird. What it should do is take you through the entire OS setup, as if you erased and reinstalled, and let you create a new account and everything. I don't really know what else to say, it should work...
