    Hello ppl,
    So suddenly my TC password won't work anymore. But im 200% sure its the right one, i have written it down three times on three different papers
    I checked my keyboard Layout.
    Can't do anything with rescue CD, says incorrect pw there too.
    Tried using old passwords that i had before this one (written them down aswell) doesn't work.
    Is it possible that i've been hacked or is that not much of a possibility
    HELP PLEASE, important files on tc

    Make sure you don't have a stuck key, that happened to me I didn't realize the ~ key was only working intermittently. Also make sure number lock is set how you usually had it.

    Damn, who would've thought, the PW was indeed wrong
    Made a long list of possible combos and one worked. Had to switch I to 1

    So ppl, don't panic most of the time it really is the password
