    My daughter changed the admin password on my g5 and can't remember it. I have been trying to reset through single user mode but am unable to type. I know it is possible because I did it once before can someone please help me. I have no disc and I need the Mac for work

    What are you using as a keyboard? If it is anything but a standard USB keyboard it probably will not work. Very few device drivers are active in single user mode.

    I use a standard keyboard

    The keyboard isn't the problem it typed for a while then I shut it off and couldn't duplicate my results
