I cannot reset my password

I'm kinda stuck... I tried resetting my password with the recovery mode but it says error!

Does anybody know how to solve my problem???

I also could upload some screenshots of my problem if that would help?

It all started when I deleted the password after I tried editing my user account settings and it wants my password but I press enter and it says wrong password also when I download something it says that I have to provide password to 'authenticate' I press enter too but nothing... I type my old password too but it says 'WRONG!'

enter image description here

My user account and as you can see there is no password

enter image description here

I entered my password but you can see I cannot change it... What is going on?!?!

Hi friend, can I ask, why do you need to reset your password? –  Luis Alvarado Dec 7 '12 at 18:58
    
Ah because I cannot download or edit my user setting in Ubuntu –  Wojciech Wojtanowski Dec 7 '12 at 18:58
    
Please provide us with more information? Why, when, how etc. That screenshot might help –  OrangeTux Dec 7 '12 at 19:00

Then enter a new password.
