  1. Bitlocker Recovery key - I havent made any changes, I am administrator, and I've never made...


    As the subject title already explains, I haven't made any changes to my laptop, I am the administrator, and I have never made a recovery key in the first place.


    I've had a look at forums etc but can't seem to find a STRAIGHTFORWARD answer.

    - What is this?

    - Why is it being prompted (seems as though randomly when turning on my computer sometimes).


    I always press "exit and continue with windows 10",the laptop is slower on startup then when i first got it but i think its a normal slowdown due to what i assume is obvious reasons such as the fact I've used it and inevitably used up some memory.

    But, its far from reassuring to have this blue screen pop up every so often and prompt I should have (a key) I never had and dont know what it is :/ .


    IF anyone can please help???


    SN: I purchased my laptop off ebay which makes me even more uneasy. (Surface book 1)

    :)

  3. recovery bitlocker blue screen

    Hi Rick,

    Please follow the suggestions below and check if you are able to boot to your desktop.

    • Places to look for your BitLocker key:
      • On a printout you saved. Look in places you keep important papers.
      • Saved on a USB flash drive. Plug the USB flash drive into your locked PC and follow the instructions. If you saved the key as a text file on the flash drive, use a different computer to read the text file.
      • In your Microsoft account. To get your recovery key, go to
        BitLocker Recovery Keys.

    • Or ask someone for help:
      • Ask someone with administrator privileges on the same PC to unlock it with their key.
      • If your PC is connected to a domain (usually a work or school computer), ask a system administrator for your recovery key

    Hope this helps in resolving the bitlocker recovery keys. Keep us posted on the bitlocker recovery key issues. We are happy to help!

    Bitlocker recovery key

    Hi LindsayWratten,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community Forums.

    Appreciate your efforts to work on this issue.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:

    1. Are you aware of any changes made to the PC prior to this issue?
    2. What is the error message you get when you say ‘My system failed when recovering from a previous set point’?
    3. Do you have administrative privileges on the same PC?

    However, you can follow the suggestions below to check if that helps.

    Suggest you to refer to this article to know
    where to look or find the Bitlocker recovery key
    .

    Further, you can ask someone with administrator privileges on the same PC to unlock it with their key.

    If your PC is connected to a domain network (usually a work or school computer), ask the system administrator for your recovery key.

    Here are the
    recovery options in Windows 10
    .

    Note: Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore point was made.

    Resetting reinstalls Windows 10, but lets you choose whether to keep your files or remove them, and then reinstalls Windows. You can reset your PC from Settings, the sign-in screen, or by using a recovery drive or installation media.

    Hope this helps and let us know how it goes.

    Regards,
