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.

Hi

"Yes" for installing any flash or any type or program you might Administrator password.
As default Ubuntu has no password set for the root user. To gain root access you have to type in your own user password. This is the password you set for the first user while installing Ubuntu. To manually set a password for the root user, type in the following in the shell:


sudo passwd

After that you are asked to type in the new root password twice. Finally, your root user has its own password.

Now you enter the your password to install the flash or any other program.
