    I'm currently locked out of my Power Mac G5. While trying to install the latest Java for Mac OS x 10.5 Update 6 from Software Update, my admin. password was rejected as invalid. When I try to change my password in Accounts, my old password is rejected. I've entered this password a thousand times, and, yeah, I'm slightly senile, but caps lock isn't on. Any suggestions or similar issues?

    Well, probably the easiest thing to do is reset your password. You need the discs that came with your computer, or you need a Mac OS X disc (such as a copy of Snow Leopard). Then, follow these instructions on Apple's website under "Resetting the original administrator account password"
