You need to use Forgot Password if you can and if not, contact Apple Support.

Have you lost your password to logon to iTunes?


Have you forgotten your password to you Mac?
      • Boot into single user mode (press Command-S at power on)
      • Type fsck -fy
      • Type mount -uw /
      • Type launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.DirectoryServices.plist
      • Type dscl . -passwd /Users/username password, sub in username with the correct username and password with the new password.
      • Restart the computer

If you can no longer access the email account which you used for sign up for your Apple ID, you need to create a new Apple ID in order to download apps from iTunes app store.
