Hi ,

If the disk is full, then you cannot get in Recovery Mode ? I didn't know that.

What is the error message ?

From [Recovery mode] is easy to reset your password : http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/resetpassword

Try it:

restart your pc
go to recovery mode
go to root option
type

sudo mount -o remount ,rw /

passwd [your username]

reboot

NOTE: If you want to known your username type

ls /home

Can you help with this problem?
