Login Password doesn't work

Hey, i installed garuda linux 2 days ago since i am an arch linux lover, everything was going good until today when i turn on my pc and the actual password doesn't work after trying can u please help me solve this issue?

welcome to the forum. did you login to the guest account by accident? or did you change the desktop environment.

None of these i still have access to guest account but my main account doesn't work i get a password error, i haven't even changed my password


Do you have updated your system and snapshots in grub?

Then use a working snapshot.

One last issue i had with every linux distro is that my cd-rom tray (the place where to put cd) keep opening by itself how can disable it?

It's a feature, I think not a bug.
If in BIOS the order is CD-HDD it will boot everytime from CD.

I have lenovo touchpad laptop which use bios by default, is there anything i can do to stop this behavior?

Remove the CD :slight_smile:
Or read the manual, I have BD/CD but never self open.
Check your BIOS settings.
And google/duckduckgo about BIOS.


Alright thank u very much for the help, I'm in love with the distro i won't hesitate to ask if i have any issues
