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

If that doesn't work, or that's the technique you tried, then please provide the full and exact text of any error messages. Please also specify if you're unable to log in, able to log in but unable to perform administrative tasks, or if your Ubuntu system is set up so you don't have to log in (but you're unable to perform administrative tasks).
