Check your keyboard is set to english uk, not us. US reacts differently to keyboards inputs.

Good luck.

I know this is something you've already tried, but what exactly happens with this ?

running startx gets you in a different UI than the default

Knowing this might help understanding why the graphical login loops.

I have been suffering from a recurring problem with two installs of LLite. I have read through the forum and see many people encountering this, no proper solution has ever been posted from what I can see.
The Password is correct, there is no error (screen error that says password is wrong) but screen simply refreshes and ask for password again. You can type the password a million times or until you turn blue in the face - whichever comes first.
Going into command line mode doesn't help - although you can login through command prompt - running startx gets you in a different UI than the default. 
Trying to fix install of update through boot doesn't help - always running latest updates.

My only saviour todate is the quirkiness of this, that I would reboot and sometimes it would work, and sometimes not, then I would nbe lucky by trying one of the other installs or I would give up and go into Bodhi Linux.

I am just wondering why so many have faced this and nobody has taken this seriously enough to fix.
I have not experienced this problem with any other Linux variant, but consistently experience this with Linux Lite.

Looking forward to some constructive ideas - especially those that go beyond the ones posted in the other past threads on topic
