You might have another problem. Switching to archivelog mode will not suddenly cause ORA-1017 problems. To confirm, disable archivelog mode and see if you can connect again.

Best regards.

I have always been able to do:
1) sqlplus
2) username>sys / as sysdba
3) password> anything
4) alter user <user> identified by <yourpassword>;
5) exit
6) sqlplus
7) username> <the user you changed the password for>
Cool password> <the value in <yourpassword> from above

HTH
