    To do any repairs or reset the admin password, you have to have your discs. Sorry.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!

    By "school computer" do you mean, a computer belonging to you that you bought and use at school?
    If this, go to the people you bought it from and ask them where to get replacement "disc thingys".
    They should be able to help.

    Or do you mean, a computer belonging to the school that they let you use?
    If this, take your computer back to school and tell them "its broken" and let them fix it for you.

    Or do you mean something else?

    I would first take it to the school's IT department.

    It sounds like an issue with the hard drive. Either bad sectors or it can't find the OS.

    You can try to boot into single user mode by holding command + s at startup. Once you get root:/ type fsck -fy

    This will attempt to fix any inconsistencies in the file system. It will give you a report of if the drive can be repaired or not

    Good luck
