  1. Computer can't sign in to microsoft account


    My laptop hasn't been able to sign me in to my Microsoft account despite several reboots and logins.

    Each time, I'm given a temporary account and told that it can often be fixed by simply signing out and signing back in. No luck.

    At first I thought it was an internet problem but I have internet access (or I wouldn't be able to type this message). Several reboots and sign-ins haven't changed it.

    I'm quite frankly perplexed as to why it suddenly can't sign me in. I use this computer almost daily and I know my passwords and everything.

    I've tried logging in while my antivirus is turned off and I've even ran the system file checker as advised on this page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4027881/windows-10-we-cant-sign-in-to-your-account

    No file corruption was detected.

    Is there something else I could try? What could the reason be for this?

    :)

  2. sign into microsoft account glitch

    Hi Micheal,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this the only account on the computer?
    • Was this account upgraded from previous version of Windows?

    It looks like you are using a local account. I suggest you follow these steps:

    • Click on search in taskbar and type account.
    • Click on Accounts.
    • Now, under Your account, click on Sign in with Microsoft account instead.
    • Enter your Local account password for confirmation and then follow the screen instruction.
    • Enter User name credentials for your the new Microsoft account and click OK.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Hi Gloria,

    The error code that your are getting when adding an account is usually caused by the following:

    • Your phone has an incorrect date and time set.
    • You do not have a data connection.
    • Your phone is in a "bad state."
    We suggest that you follow the steps on this link to set up your Microsoft
