  3. Lock screen not working properly on Windows 10 computer.

    Hi Oshith,



    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Windows 10. I will certainly help you.



    This issue might occur if there is change in lock screen settings.

    To assist you better, please provided us the information below:

    • When you say that "It is not flapped over to password when clicking", you tried to check the issue by clicking through external mouse?
    • Have you made any changes to the computer prior to the issue?

    I suggest you to follow the steps below to change the picture of the lock screen and also try to update Display Adapter driver.

    Step 1: I suggest you to follow the steps below to set the lock screen pictures.

    1. Right click on Desktop screen.

    2. Then click on Personalize.

    3. Click on Lock Screen.

    4. Try to select the lock screen picture.

    Step 2: I recommend you to update the latest driver for display adapter in Device Manager.

    1. Press Windows Key + R Key.

    2. Then type “devmgmt.msc” without the quotes and hit on
    Enter Key.

    3. Expand Display Adapter.

    4. Right click on the driver and click on Update driver software.





    Please get back to us with an update on issue with lock screen, we will be happy to help.



    Thank you.
