My mac is about 5 years old. The problem is I've forgotten my password XXXXX at 58 am not that tech savy!!
PLEASE.... I need the whole process...again I'm not the best on these here things:} so go slow lol.... right now I have the screen that has my admin name and sleep, restart, and shutdown on it. Also it says Mac OS X
I couldn't find one....found my three year plan etc( past now) and everthing else but it grrrrrr
The problem is how do i get a text prompt?? it goes right to the screen I just told you about( IE: mac background with my sign in screen
It now says AppleYukon2: RxRingsize <= 1024, TxRingsize 256, RX_MAX_LE 1024, TX_MAX_LE 768, ST_MAX_LE 3328
It takes me back to the sign in screen.....I didn't mention before with the "S" key there was a whole page of commands etc: I just typed the last line. It says if you want to make mods. to files either
/sbin/fsck -fy or
/sbin/mount uw /
do I type in one of the commands that I just wrote about?? They are half way up the page the botXXXXX XXXXXne is still the AppleYukon2 etc:
-sh: smount: command not found (after first line) then a line that says

I tried the router....its in the network as the tv and phone work. It says root deviceis mounted read only.Does that mean anything. This all started with our commu i ation. I have cerebral palsy and it is really hard to type on my phone
it says no such file or directory and goes back to :/root# XXXXX next line
This could be a kernel issue or a hardware issue. Not sure what exactly that means.
Unfortunately, I am out of ideas. I will opt out here so that a different expert with knowledge on the hardware side working of a mac might be able to help you out.
You will receive an email notification once another expert replies.
the last line is :/ root# XXXXX that -sh: s/sbin/fsck: no such file or directory...sorry. I'm slow but I have "C.P." a and I am using my pbone. E very computer is off line I really need your help.
