Every since I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04, I keep getting an error message saying, "incorrect password". I've never changed my password since starting to use Ubuntu. How can I fix this?

Have you changed your keyboard layout recently? –  Basharat Sialvi May 20 '12 at 20:36

Possible problems:

  • You have your Caps Lock on.
  • You changed your keyboard layout. Check the keyboard icon in the upper right.
  • You are mistyping your password in some way.
