Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I install ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander in january 14 and made update 3-4 weeks ago. By the first install in january, I did not made a password to the computer - I just typed Enter. After update the system now ask for a password.

I have tried the commando for forgotten password + new passwd in the root. After several tries my password is acceptet, but when I start my computer and type the password nothing happes. CRTL+Alt+F1 show ubuntu 14.04 LTS. What can I do to log-on. Can I do something in the root. By use CRTL+AlT+F3 or F6/F1 there is no time for typing username/password - the system say, timer: connect/disconnect timeout
