    Somehow my keychain Password has changed. I assume it is some sort glitch in the system. Either way i cannot find instructions on how to fix it. Any help would be appreciated

    Take the restore or Mac OS X CD that came with your computer, and boot off of it. In the installer menu it has a reset password command. Once done doing that, Quit from the Installer menu. To change the keychain passwords once you know your password, there is a Keychain Access application in your Applications or Applications Utilities folder. You can delete as many keychains as you need to reset and re-establish them by re-opening the applications that stored them

    If that doesn't work, try running this little Apple program:

    See thats the odd thing about it. My log-in password hasn't changed at all. But my Keychain password has(i stupidly had 2 different passwords)

    Tried what you said but i had to run disk warrior first to repair some faults in my directories. My internal drive wasn't showing up on the password reset command
