Besides the obvious answer (the password is indeed wrong -- could happen 
to anyone), maybe the keyboard layout is different that the one you are 

You can use the username field to test, in particular any special 
characters your password might contain.

If you still can't figure it out the Debian Installer's 'rescue' mode 
can be used to chroot into the install and reset the password.

Kind regards,
