I am able to log in to Ubuntu 13.10 only as a guest user.
I am unable to use my user name and password. I have uninstalled and re-installed Ubuntu 13.10 several times, created new user name and passwords during installation, but every time i log in with my user name and password, it says : password incorrect.
Moreover, when i sign in as a guest user, i am asked for a password to access my drives, and even here the password i provide does not work.

Are CapLock and NumLock the same when creating the user and when logging in? –  user3121023 Jan 25 '14 at 13:25
