gutsy wont recognize password. Recovery not an option.
Suddenly yesterday Ubuntu kept saying, that my password was wrong.
I am on an ASUS A6rP. which needs 'hpet=disable' on the boot parameters to work.
When I try to boot in recovery mode, it won't work. even when I add 'hpet=disable'.
This password problem has happened before. But back then, I had no problems booting in recovery mode, but it didn't work. Even when I changed my password to '1234' ubuntu kept saying the password was wrong at login. So I reinstalled and the problem vanished. Until yesterday.
What could the problem be? I really don't want to reinstall again.
BTW. I'm running Gutsy gibbon and i'm currently running the live cd.
EDIT; I've ordered the hardy cd. so I'm going to wait probably 10 weeks for it to arrive. Hardy installation is not an option yet either.
