modified password does not function the machine after to restart

When I modified the password of the user root, and the machine was restarted, the new password stopped to function...

Necessary to enter in (single mode) modifying the password and the system to come back to function.

With plus somebody already happened this?

I don't really understand. Use the "passwd" command to change the password.
