My computer shuts down on startup loading screen. I forgot the firmware password I must of made a year ago, any chance of recovery ?

No. The first had sensors gone off, not real water damage. They are triggered by the moisture in the air. Google is your friend, them abusing that system recently made big headlines.

This current computer failed independently, I only discovered the firmware password in an attempt to fix it. I am perhaps preventing it being fix but certainly didn't break it in the first place.

I am suprised to see someone so hurt and upset about my story, clearly apple products mean a lot to you for you to defend their honor. I am deep in the negatives on this post so obviously a lot of very submissive people here.

I will finally have to learn linux, I guess. Windows is crap and so is mac.
