You should have stored your seed when you first created your electrum wallet, you can use that to create a new wallet with the "restore wallet" option you can then access your coins again.

Sadly i lost the copy of my seed. Is there any other way to recover my coins stucked in the wallet because of the password not accepted by electrum?

There's no way to restore your wallet other than using the seed/password if you don't have the private keys backed up.  Both of those are pretty much the whole security of electrum.

you should only work on your password and be sure that your are entering something wrong. keep in mind that passwords are case sensitive so you may be forgetting to enter something uppercase.

also try this: type your password someplace else like a .txt file and try different combinations that you may thing by looking at it and then paste each in electrum and try it.

i don't have experience brute-forcing electrum, but the earlyer versions seemed to use aes encryption:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=170188.0

If you have a vague idear about what your password might have been, it shouldn't be to hard to write a little script to iterate trough your idears, add some letters, change some letters,...

Once again: the post above is for an old version, i have never attempted to execute this idear, so it might not work (anymore)

i am 100% sure i am typing the correct password i just don't know why my electrum don't accept it. i am still trying to find ways on how to recover coins in the wallet or else im fucked Sad
