    I want to reset my PC or reinstall the computer, but it showed password incorrect.


    I execute msconfig in cmd and disable all the services. Then I restart the computer, suddenly my local password is incorrect and never let in log in. I tried to fix that issue by loggin into safe mode, but it requires password as well, I can't signed in to safe mode with neither my local password, or microsoft account password. Now I tried to reinstall Win10 and it asked me to enter microsoft account password which also gave me password incorrect.

    I can use the same password to sign in to microsoft website but cannot reset my PC. I have checked the password that I entered with the eye button, it should be right.

    Any help is appreciated.

    :)

    Password shows incorrect.

    Hi,

    If you forgot your Microsoft account password, follow these steps.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/402697...

    If you don’t have a Microsoft account and forgot your local account password, you can’t recover it. Instead, you’ll need to reset your PC.

    Note: If you’re using Windows 10, version 1803, and added security questions to your local account to help you reset your password, select Reset password on the sign-in screen. (This link appears after you enter an incorrect password.) Then enter the answers
    to the security questions and choose a new password.

    Warning: Following these steps will remove all of your data, programs, and settings.

    Start your PC and select the Power icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the lock screen.

    While holding down the Shift key, select Restart.

    On the Boot options menu, select Troubleshoot > Reset this PC > Remove everything.

    Your PC will restart and will reset itself.
