    So I noticed they're is an update for java today and want the update. It ask me for my password and I type it in and it says invalid. User name is there already when it prompts me. I restarted my mini to see if the keyboard might have been acting weird, but still not working.

    Any ideas?

    thanks

    Popping in your install disc and resetting the password is also an option. Though you will lose any saved passwords or networks since it does not reset the keychain. Also it is useless if you use filevault.

    Do you think I can do that with the Snow leopard upgrade disc? I have a used mini and no disc.
