    My MBP came back from being repaired and it always boots up in verbose mode now. I opened Terminal and typed in sudo nvram boot-args= and it asks for a password. I don't know what it could be.. so I just hit enter.. and it comes back to the command line.

    Next, I check what mode the boot is in, it still says '-v'. How do I get rid of this? How do I reset whatever password it is asking for? Is it the firmware password? Thanks.

    well i haven't assigned one - it's blank.. so when i hit enter after it prompts me for passwd.. it should accept it. But when i type in nvram -p it still shows verbose mode booting. :confused:

    Your account must have a password, this is it, use it.
