I have searched the internet and while other people have had the same 
problem, I do not see how I can apply their solutions to my machine. 
(probably because I do not know enough about Ubuntu. My version is 14.04

If I reinstall Ubuntu using the same passwords as in the original 
installation will my existing home directory and its contents be 
overwritten? I need to get the system going and retain the data. The 
last good backup is May 19th. The latter backups were on an external 
disk which has failed
