Question about Computers & Internet
Try these steps it worked for me it can work for you:
1. You’ll need to boot from your Ubuntu Live CD, choosing “Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer” from the boot menu.
2. Once the system boots, open up a new Terminal window from Applications \ Accessories and then type in the following command:
sudo fdisk -l (minus small leter L)
3. Now you’ll need to create a directory to mount the hard drive on. Since we’re actually booting off the live cd, the directory doesn’t really get created anywhere. then type
sudo mkdir /media/sda1
4.The next command will mount the hard drive in the /media/sda1 folder.
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/sda1
5. The command that actually does the trick is: chroot.
it is used to open up a shell with a different root directory than the current shell is using, and we’ll pass in the folder where we mounted the hard drive.
sudo chroot /media/sda1
6. Now you can be able to use the passwd command to change your user account’s password, and it will be applied to the hard drive since we are using chroot.
7. passwd 12345
Note: you’ll need to type your username after the passwd command in order to change the right password.
8. Now you should be able to reboot your system and log yourself in with your new password.

I don't think you will find a recovery CD but Linux is free to download is suggest using pen drive linux (link bellow) to get the OS you want and the tools you need to make your boot media
