I forgot my password to my laptop. I know the passcode in the startup that is displayed on the bottom with white stars. But, not my actual account password. I can only use it in guest mode, and that isn't great use at all.
I looked up how to reset it online and they all said to hold Shift or press it multiple times, or press esc to get to the GRUB menu to reset it. My laptop just doesn't seem to want too get to that menu. It did to begin with I'm pretty sure. When I first installed Ubuntu, I had the option to click Windows 7 or Ubuntu, but later just made Ubuntu the only OS, so that screen doesn't shop up.
I don't know what to do anymore, I really would like to be able to get back into my laptop if it's possible at all. I don't care about the materials inside of it, it didn't have much information on it anyways. Just a few games. If there is something I missed or don't know about. Please reply, I've been stuck like this for a few weeks now.
