How do I change password Compaq with MacOSX?

November 25, 2010 at 22:10:23
I have recently got a pre-owned Compaq Evo N610c laptop that is running Mac OS X version 10.4.8 and I did not recieve the start up disc with the computer. How do I change the administrator passwords and delete the old accounts/information off so that I can start clean? I've checked some forums but they all say to press the apple key and 's' during startup but as the computer in question is a compaq it has no apple key. I've tried just about every key with 's' during startup but it's still not working. Could someone help me?

Yes mate I realize this, but its a friend of a friends computer who is now deceased and I have no way of getting the password. I was just wondering if there is any way to change this without having the disc?
