    This should put you right:

    http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword

    However, you haven't said which version of Ubuntu you are running. That shouldn't make any difference to the psychocats instructions, but with a second hand machine you may have an obsolete version of Ubuntu. What version is it? If you don't know and you can open a terminal, the output of this command will tell you:

    Code:
    cat /etc/lsb-release

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.
