  1. Locked out of my laptop because I'm locked out of my email account


    Hi,I've recently been locked out of my personal windows account. I no longer have access to the recovery phone number because the account is 15 years old and frankly I dont use it. However I've used the email when I first got my lenovo laptop in order for me log into the computer. `Now all of sudden microsoft has deemed me suspicious and locked my account, which now has locked my laptop. For whatever the reason, the process to regain access is to fill out a verification worksheet that asks very specific questions that I just dont have the answers to, apparently. No one at microsoft support is

    Nonexistent account on lock screen

    I changed the name of my laptop to match the name of the unit it replaced. When I rebooted, I got a message that the username or password was incorrect. Then I noticed there are now 2 accounts listed at bottom left on the lock screen: the correct one and one with a username that doesn't exist in user accounts. The name is the first 5 letters of the correct login. Unfortunately, the lock screen defaults to the phantom account (of course it would). I can switch to my regular account and log in as usual, but that's bothersome. Is there a settings page where I can get rid of the extra account or is there some place in the registry? The lock screen has to be seeing it somewhere, but it's not showing up in any of the usual account settings places.

    Running 19042.746 Pro.

    Laptop FN Lock?

    On non-number pad laptops, Num Lock must be turned OFF. The boss probably turned on Num Lock while using the external keyboard.

    Most 15.6" and above 16:9 laptops have number pads these days.
