@amraiz.kiyani Aslam o alikum. Please open a new thread and explain better your problem.

If you don't have the root password, but you have sudo privileges on your user account (i.e., you can run commands under sudo by entering your user password), then you can simply run this to become root in the terminal:

$ sudo su

And then, you can change the root password with the passwd command.
