i'd forgotten my admin password on ubuntu so i attempted to reboot into recovery mode using these instructions: How do I reset a lost administrative password?

when i did hold down the left shift key nothing would happen so i did a hard reset and then it wouldn't boot up at all! did i do something wrong? what should i do?

sorry about this, im still new to this sorta thing!
