This question already has an answer here:

I forgot my Ubuntu 13.10, so I reset my password from revoverymode using "passwd". Now when I log in to my system the keyring prompts "The password you use to login to your computer no longer matches that of your login keyring". I googled to change the keyring password but it requires my old password that I don't remember.

Any suggestions on how to solve this.?

Try live booting with a USB. Then check out this link, it is for 12.10 so I am not sure if it is the same:

How to recover/reset forgotten Gnome Keyring Password?

Another link:

https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-help/user-forgottenpassword.html

Or if that doesn't work:

I would try getting a live boot of Kali/BackTrack, and use the password cracking tools on there,(or install the tools from another live distro) if no other recovery option works.
