This question already has an answer here:

I am unable to login to my primary account. After I input the password, it loads for a while and then again I see the splash screen asking me to input my password again.

Sometimes it shows mountall and disconnected Plymouth or something like that.

I changed my root password but still I cant access it from my Guest account.

How do I solve these problems?
