  1. Can't log in to PC


    I recently had security issues with my hotmail. I changed my password and added to factor ID with an authenticator app. I was able to log into my PC fine. I then changed my primary alias to a gmail address due to multiple sign in attempts elsewhere. However, when I log on to my computer it has a screen with my hotmail and an option for my password. It wouldn't take it i assume because after I changed my primary alias to a gmail address that also became my sign in address. So contacted microsoft support.

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.

    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Hi,

    I appreciate the troubleshooting steps you have tried to resolve the issue.

    Please answer this question to assist you better.

    • Is the issue in Local account or Microsoft Account?
    • Are you able to use Mouse?

    I would suggest you to restart your computer and check for Num lock
    key on the keyboard; It should be turned on. Also press Windows key + space bar
    and check for language changes.

    If you are able to use Mouse then click on Easy of access
    button on the lock screen and choose onscreen keyboard and try to enter the password. Do let us know if you are able to log into PC. Thank you.
