    First of all, it was probably stolen. I can't imagine someone selling an iMac and leaving all of their data on there.

    Second, if you boot off of the Leopard disk, I think you can change password. If not, I would just reinstall Leopard on it and that will solve your problem.

    Not sure how a pawn shop could tell you a name was clear. The logical thing to do is check with the police department or Apple. $400 for a working iMac 24" screams stolen to me.

    You said that you bought it off of Cragslist. Anyone can steal a computer and list it on Craigslist... it has nothing to do with pawn shops.

    Can you be more specific on the problem? Are you saying that when you boot up the computer, it's asking for a password? If so, you can just buy a copy of Leopard and reinstall the operating system on it. Problem fixed. You just got yourself a HOT computer for a good price.

    You are not making any sense.

    If you want to know what your iMac is worth, you must ask it in the Market Place forums. In order to do that, you must have at least 250 posts... which you do not have.
