Sounds like you are entering in the wrong password for the first user. You can reset it from your 2nd user, assuming this user is an admin, using the following command at a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T)

sudo passwd FIRSTUSERNAME

try that, and see if this helps, if not post back here.

Can you help with this problem?
