Hello! My name isXXXXX will work diligently to provide accurate advice and information.
It sounds like you are talking about the password XXXXX your Apple ID? If you've already paid for Mountain Lion, once you recover your password, you should be able to download it again free of charge.
You should be able to reset your password XXXXX the site: http://iforgot.apple.com/
* IF YOU FORGOT THE APPLE ID ITSELF: If you go to the above mentioned site you will see an option on the right side of the page labeled "Find your Apple ID". If you click this, it will ask for some rather simple information that you should know as the owner of the account ( first name, last name, current email address plus the ability to enter additional email addresses if it has changed since you created the Apple ID).
If you can't pull up your Apple ID using the info above BUT you currently have purchased music in iTunes on your computer then you may be able to see the ID; To view this information, simply select any purchased song in iTunes and press Command-I or choose "Get Info" from the File menu. Then in the Summary tab of the window that appears (this should be the default tab), you should see the name / Apple ID listed.

iTunes > iTunes Store > Account Management > Managing or editing iTunes Store Account > Email
As an alternative, if you do not wish to handle it online, you can try calling this number: 1-800-676-2775. Ask if they can verify you as the owner of the account for the purposes of resetting the password.
