Apple MacBook Pro 17-Inch "Core i7" 2.4 late 2011​

Hi. I found my old mac laptop but dont remember my password. I would like to access without losing data or do hard reset if that's not possible. There arent any apple id or accounts associated any more. And when i try to access the menu with reboot command R i get the circle with a line through it so it must have been older than sierra.

Anybody know how I can salvage this?

Thank you

Hello and welcome.
  • Does the Mac startup to the login screen?
  • Can we get a photo of the login screen?
  • Have you tried not entering a password?
  • If you enter an incorrect password, a couple of times, does it give you a hint?

Hi thanks for the reply. It was going to the login screen pretty quickly but when I started trying all of the command are combinations and then tried the internet login thing, now it's just going to a white screen after sitting at the Apple logo loading forever. Please help me get access if you can
