    Hey experts -
    I have a macbook pro I am trying to use. It hasn't been used in a long time.
    It's from 2011....
    But I have used it in the last year because it's running the sierra beta I think.
    When I turn it on, it asks for my password. I enter it and it shows a loading bar.
    And then a box pops up asking for accountsd wants to use the "login" keychain.
    It won't load past this and I have tried every password I can think of and it doesn't accept any of them.
    So I am stuck on a grey screen with a loading bar three quarters of the way loaded and a pop up that won't go away because I don't know the password.
    What are my options??

    Clicking cancel (possibly many times) will get you past this point. Then you need to reset the login keychain using these instructions.

    I can't click cancel. There is no mouse cursor when the box pops up. I can't click anything.

    Try hitting Esc then? If not try booting into safe mode (holding shift) and try again.

    Ooo nevermind. For some reason now a mouse cursor has appeared and I was able to click cancel a million times
