So here's the deal: I need to find a way to get into the admin account on my school lap top. The way I did it last was reset the PRAM and get into safemode to delete a startup file so I could make another admin account and change passwords that way. BUT I'm pretty sure the IT people at my school did something weird to these things. When you take the battery and L-bracket out and remove a stick of RAM and all that and hold down option+command+P+R to reset the parameter RAM, it doesn't even restart or ding. I've done this many many times last year so there's no chance I'm doing wrong. It's not just my computer that won't boot into safemode either. I'm cool with using discs, but I don't know if I'd need an admin password to use them. :/ Dilemma.
