Cant login to root even with reset password

Hello,
Somehow I cant login to root at all anymore. It just denies access.
I log into with Putty in settings which worked before. Just suddenly stopped working.
I figured I would use pw reset for root from my droplet controls.
But even with the new pw I get access denied.

Thank you very much for any help.

Try this https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/droplets/how-to/connect-with-console/ and try spelling the password instead of copy/paste. Also check if you're connecting to the right ip address which should be specified in the DO account.
