  1. Help: Password Not Recognized!!!


    Windows lock screen changed: password window shrank and the pin option disappeared. *Sick It will not accept my password!

    System: Dell Optiplex 745 5G, 250G Windows Insider fast lane, fresh udate. Booting to Safe Mode to solve another problem, it rejected my password. Can not get back into Windows from lock screen!

    Background: last week, BSOD when the desktop manifested. System would not reboot.

    Reset left me with no mouse or keyboard. No other options were available. {No restore points and it could not find my backup.} All else failed.

    Fresh reinstall, recovery from backup file, reinstallation of software and update followed.

    Residual problems: DVDRW not recognized, spins, in BIOS, not showing in Device Manager.

    Bios demands striking F1 to boot, claiming floppy disk error. There is no FD in this system and never was. FD shows in Device Manager, reappers after uninstall.

    Hardware troubleshooter did not help. Nothing in ASC11 and Tweaking.com Windows Repair helped.

    Attempts to reflash the bios failed, declaring disk access error, both in Windows and on boot up. I removed the usb stick and rebooted. When I tried to reboot to Safe Mode, a message flashed by too fast to read, related to bios reflash. Subsequent reflash of Phoenix 2.6.6 did not help.

    when the lock screen manifested, the password field was smaller and it rejected my password. It does the same in Windows.

    I set up this Optiplex 760 with the same password. It works here, not on the 745. I do not know my Microsoft Account password. It made me change the pw. when I reinstalled Windows. I saved it in an html file I can't accesss. There is no way to use my pin. I do not know what the key icon is.

    The I forgot my password link just pauses brifly, goes dark and refreshes the lock screen.

    Hardware: no FD, DVD is not recognized. Only 2 SATA headers, one for HD and one for DVD. No touch screen.

    :)

  3. New FF - passwords


    Hi:

    If that setting is already enabled, then I suggest as the next troubleshooting step might be Mozilla Safe Mode (not to be confused with Windows Safe Mode)):

    Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode | Firefox Help


    • Please report back and let us know the outcome, as it will dictate the next steps.
    • Also: please tell us what AV/AM/firewall programs are you running on this system?

    Thanks,
    MM
