    Your Apple ID password is not the same as the OS X user password you need to make changes such as installing software. If you've lost track of your OS X password:

    1. Turn off your Mac (choose Apple > Shut Down).
    2. Press the power button while holding down Command-R. The Mac will boot into Recovery mode. ...
    3. Select Disk Utility and press Continue.
    4. Choose Utilities > Terminal.
    5. Enter resetpassword (all one word, lowercase letters) and press Return.
    (Instructions pasted from Macworld.co.uk)
