This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I don't understand, the password you enters seems to be wrong. Have you forgot it ? You can reset you password that way

  • Start you computer.
  • Choose Other options and then recovery mode.
  • Choose root terminal and then enter passwd your_username.
  • Enter reboot.
