  How can we change the password in the iBook donated to our nonprofit?  No password was given with the iBook and every time we try to install items, the password window pops up.  We need to put in printer and other software.  Help! We can use the laptop without changing the password.

If you did not get an OS X install-restore DVD with the computer you may need
to buy one from somewhere, and you may be lucky to get a retail OS X 10.5.x
version. The original grey-label install set of software and OS X it shipped with
likely would be an older system than Leopard 10.5. Last versions of G4 Mac, &
G5, shipped with a Tiger 10.4 system; so did early Intel-based Mac. Grey discs
which accompanied other computer build models generally do not interchange.
The last OS X version a PowerPC architecture can use, if supported, is 10.5.8.
A PPC processor at 867MHz & faster should be able to run OS X 10.5 Leopard.
{With the correct disc installer, you can use it to change a password and other
things including re-install, and perform disk utility functions, etc.}
There is a chance you may be able to get a white-label Replacement 10.4 DVD
or Replacement 10.5 DVD from AppleCare or the online Apple Store (800myapple)
from a Mac OS X system specialist; these have been available yet hard to get
as not all persons involved with them seem to know if they still exist until someone
is asking. These aren't retail stock, are special discs for computers who could use
a system later than original old discs; these are complete install discs not for one
specific series of Mac. Generally they'd work in supported PowerPC G4/G5; but
do not replace specialized original install DVD, such as an early Intel mac requires.
You'd need to have a serial number of the computer, and a method of payment
when seeking some replacement system media from Applecare or Apple sales
and these discs are not available in a retail store. The original Retail discs are
labeled differently and shipped in a retail box with a big X on the front. Other
sources for retail 10.4 Tiger or 10.5 Leopard may be online via amazon sellers
or computer resellers who handle repaired Macs. Avoid mystery grey label ones
that were intended to be sold and kept with their original computer kits.
Good luck!

    Thanks

    Thank you very much!
    I cant believe this little comment has been so helpful!
    But yes it is:
    I explain, despite my efforts to find, googled it, forums, faqs, etc...
    no where it mentionned the manifest.fm file is... INSIDE the .jar!
    Your comment "a zip" made me attempt to open it with winrar, and I found a manifest.fm file inside!
    So far I was editing the one at the "source" of my project and rebuilding it with netbeans.
    I am going to try that now.
    Actually.... :( no its mentionning my main class!
    Manifest-Version: 1.0

    Oh and I felt on your comment "dont ask us" as if I was suppose to know... i'm a beginner, I did not know that! And I tried to give you so many infos so you dont lose your time if you want to help, especially as after my own research I found many, many results for this "main class" and I tried a few solutions!

  • There is no option to use the laptop without requiring a password?

    The machine contantly asks me for a password.  There is no option to use the laptop without requiring a password, such a nuisance. Like everyone else I really do not like Windows 8 either.  I'm returning this waste of money and going back to living with my 5 year old HP.

    That finally did the trick, thank you very much Bugbatter.

  • I want to use variation funtion without define the characteristic...

    Dear.
    I want to use variation funtion without define the characteristic into general data selection in making report painter.
    Finally hopeful thing is, The extract data which contain that characteristic group should be used in the whole sub-hierarchy
    automatically such as I did that in general data selection.
    For example, supposing the profit center group A is composed like below,
       A
      └─ B
    └─ C
    .....└─ D
    When I make report painter, if the profit center positioned in lead column not general data,
    I can't use variation funtion in profit center. So, I must save extract data each profit center group manually. (A,B,C,D..)
    It is so uncomfortalble.(Guess the profit center group composed over hundreds.)
    You know, the profit center located in general data, I just need to extract data only once in A. Then B,C,D also saved automatically.
    Why can't do this in former case ? If possible, please let me know.

    Replace af with h.

  • How do you convert .AVI files for using in iMovie without losing the original clip time and date

    Hi everyone! does anyone know how to convert .AVI files for using in iMovie without losing the original clip time and date? Handbrake, MPEG Streamclip and Evon all replace the original timecode with the date of modification. This is very frustrating when you are trying to keep the chronology right. I know that if you upload the files to iMovie from one device the chronology isn't a problem, but I'm adding video files from a couple of iPhones and a couple of camcorders. any help much appeciated.

    i had iphone 5s which was accidently dropped in water i dont know if it could be fixed or not but is it possible to save my data using i clouds without fixing the phone

    if you set it up to sync with iclouds in terms of contacts and calendar and the likes in advanced the data is still in icloud
    if you set it up to backup to iclouds since you only get 5GB free storage you would likely had paid to get more or used very little storage on your phone then the backup is still in iclouds

    yes you can do it and not void the warranty.  Those are the only hardware changes that Apple permits.  Instructions on how to upgrade the ram and remove and replace the hard drive are even included in the owners manuals for MacBook Pros.

  • I just bought my company boss's iphone 3gs and want to set it up in my PC without loosing the apps on it.

    I just bought my company boss's iphone 3gs and want to set it up in my PC without losing the apps & music already on  it.  I have  already got a library for my old iphone 3g and was wondering how to go about it. 
    cheers

    That's called stealing, plain & simple. Your boss(or anyone for that matter) does not have the right to distribute any content, for any reason. The SLA does not permit such. When you plug the phone into your computer, all iTunes content will be erased from the phone, as it should be. You want content, purchase your own.
