It depends on what version of Joomla you are using...

Please check these instructions for Joomla! 2.5 and higher versions
http://docs.joomla.org/How_do_you_recover_or_reset_your_admin_password%3F

For older versions please follow these steps

The usertype is depreciated just like it says. It is no longer needed and at some point in the future the field will probably be dropped from the table. It is not needed to be inserted...

You can also try  this to reset the password:

If that doesn't work for you, please provide the version of your Joomla CMS, because the  password  reset procedure is not the same for all versions.
