    Hello there I have a macbook 13.3 inch model a1181 version 10.7.2

    Now I want to change a password on the computer but I do not remember the previous password

    And I do not have the installation disk and I saw on YouTube you can change your password and the system is to turn off your computer keyboard to light and then press command + s
    But it can not enter at all

    If something could help me I would be happy

    You can either order replacement discs for your model by calling Apple, or you can buy a retail copy of Snow Leopard.

    To which post are you referring to with your cryptic reply?

    I do not understand, what you mean with
    But I guess, you can't enter a password you don't remember, if you refer to the guide logana linked you to?

    And what about the option, GGJstudios gave you?
    And can't you reset the password via booting into the Lion Recovery partition?
