You mentioned console, are you using the DO console from your account to reset the password? I’m suspecting some of your keyboard keys aren’t mapped correctly. So typing ’$’ or even a letter doesn’t translate to the corresponding letter in the console. So try to reset the password using SSH. This way there is native key mapping.
