    I took my laptop in to a shop to have a new hard drive installed and the guy in the shop upgraded me to Snow Leopard. I then tried to use migration assistant to get my files back off an external HD and it's telling me my password and/or user name is incorrect. Is it possible the guy in the shop changed it? Is there a generic password when you reinstall things? Or do I need to restart my Macbook using the old Leopard disk?
    Any help gratefully received.

    Cheers

    This is possible. I would contact them and inquire.

    You can use the Leopard disc or Snow Leopard disc to change your password.
