    Cannot type my password in at the start screen for my Windows 10 system.


    Today I downloaded an Avast program that could have been a scam. I now cannot enter my HP desktop computer as it only goes as far as the start screen and will not allow me to type anything into the start screen password box. I cannot reset the password as I never created a password reset disk.

    Help!

    :)

  2. Cannot type password into Windows login screen

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better. I like to know; when you type password, are you able to view the black dots in the password area?



    I suggest you to start your computer in safe and check if the same issue persist.

    To start your system in safe mode follow the below steps:


    • Press and hold Shift key and
      restart
      your Computer.

    • Select Troubleshoot.

    • Select Advance Option.

    • Select Startup Settings.

    • Follow the on Screen instruction.


    Hope it helps, reply to us with the status of your issue. We will be happy to assist you.

    Black screen after 'Starting Windows' sequence

    Sounds like the old... windows black screen of death.

    Try this quoted from "VisiHow" article "Repair Windows 7 Black Screen of Death":

    They, also, have some other options there, too.
    Google search and you will find a lot of the "Windows Black Screen of Death with cursor" fixes.

    Cannot type my password in at the start screen for my Windows 10 system.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
