What exactly are you finding difficult? What part of the process are you finding difficult?

Recovering it. I even tried generating a new one but each time I write the new one, it keeps replying me with "the password does not match"

Are these the steps you followed?

1.    Go to your WordPress login page (e.g example.com/wp-admin)
2.    Click on Lost you password? at the bottom
3.     Enter the Username or E-mail of your WordPress admin user, then click on Get New Password
4.    You should get an email with the subject [WordPress Site] Password Reset. The body of this email will contain a link below the text To reset your password, visit the following address, go ahead and click on that link.
5.    Type in your New password, type it again to confirm confirm it, then click on Reset Password

Okay, now you have finally mentioned what the exact issue is.

If you are not getting the link, check your spam/bulk too and also make sure that you are checking the right email address.

If you still can't find the link then you may have to change your password through your cPanel (which could be a bit technical)

Thanks Oga, I still can't find it. I think I need the alternative which is "a little bit technical"  ;)

Thanks but still little problem. When logging in, Should I type the MD5 code generated or just the my plain password that generated it? Cos I typed both and still not working. Am so frustrated   :(

The MD5 should be the one stored in the database to replace whatever was there before. Be careful not to miss any character and not to copy spaces because any small error and it wont work. After it has been stored in the database you can then come to the admin login and type the real password that was used to generate the MD5.

Is that what you did?
