    If you don't know your own password, what make you think we (TINW) know it?

    Are we supposed to be psychic?

    No OS name or OS version mentioned.
    No actual Oracle product or version mentioned.

    If you are desparate, simply re-install whatever product you are keeping a SECRET from those you are asking for assistance.

    Oracle products are available for download from:
    httptn.oracle.com

    I may be a bimbo, but at least I can get numerous Oracle products successfully installed & operational on my machines; which is more than you can say.

    You're On Your Own (YOYO)!

    If above don't work, and if you have access to the machine Oracle is installed on, you can use orapwd utility to change the sys password.

    From my experience, no DBA leaves the paswords as above. Just too dangerous. But, for the pa user, maybe the password is exactly the same (pa) or empty. Just a wild guess.

    And if you are using a *NIX O/S, you can always try to log into SQLPlus as internal using the slash (/) notation.

    Another help if using *NIX would be to find the /etc/rc file that starts the database. It will likely do one of two things: 1) call SqlPlus on it's own, log into the database (as the SYS user) and call startup, or 2) call a startup script in an Oracle owned directory and if you follow that script, will access the database as sys.

    In either case, you should be able to access the database as the SYS user and can then change passwords...

    Question

    Is it a personal edition in any case? If so, can use just the navigator . It won't ask for original pwd. why don't you specify the version and product clearly ?
