This question already has an answer here:

I recently installed Ubuntu 13.04 with dual boot to Win 7 without any issue. The login screen came up on Ubuntu with two accounts (Guest & myname). I was able to login as guest but not through my name it said "Invalid password please try again". I have tried all possible passwords that i know off. Could anyone please suggest.

  • Try to login via tty1. ie: hit alt+ctrl+f1 and give your username and password. – Sambit Nov 22 '13 at 9:54

Don't you remember the password you put on installation? Do you put any pass? Try without any pass.

If this don't result, try:
