Default user not recognised and password not accepted during login

after having to reinstall karmic to get grub to work, and downloading
and installing all my software packages all over again and updates, i
restarted my computer to find out that i could log into my account. i
went to recovery and dropped to terminal to see it i can fix the
password. when i try to fix my password it says user does not exist.
when i use the live cd i can see my home folder on my home partition.
i do not want to delete my home folder and make a new user account
with the same name or what ever. this is the second time this has
happen since using karmic. any suggestions on how to fix this?
