    Hi all

    I recently bought an early Imac G5 1.6ghz with 256mb ram and a 80gb hard disk. It came with no keyboard or mouse. All seems fine but when I try to change any settings it comes up with a password box which I obviously dont have and the guy I bought it from is not available. Its got Mac OS X v 10.6 operating system on it. Can anyone tell me how to reset the password without having the original DVD operating system disk.

    Many thanks

    Mark

    That combination of Mac OS X 10.6 and an iMac G5 is not possible...

    In any case, you need a Mac OS X install disc to reset the password. There is no other way, at least not that I know of.
