  1. Locked PC with three types of signin


    My computer is currently locked because I could not unlock it with my fingerprint. The reader did not read it correctly and I need my pin. However, the bad part is I forgot my pin and my personal Outlook email password.

    I have had this issue for 4 days and no one has helped me fix the issue. I am a college student and I need this pc for school. I am may go to the Microsoft store to ask for help in person.

    I tried the recovery forms and no avail.

    All I need is a simple way where I can reset my password and change it so i can get back to my pc.

    My pc has a lot of files and work then that i do not want to lose.

    please help me.

  2. PC Build Steps

    Ok just because I like steps i am going to create some steps. Please give me the stamp of approval/disapproval
    • Install system in case
      • Remember to connect SSD and optical to same SATA ports on motherboard
    • Turn on PC
    • setup HDD
    • run blend test in prime95 for 30-60 min
      • run realtemp at the same time
    • While in Prime95 test
      • if CPU goes above 70c in RealTemp, I have a leaky CPU
      • if my system locks up or blue screens, there is an instability in the system somewhere
      • if my system does not lock up or blue screen, my CPU is not damaged and I am in the clear!
    What do you guys think??

  3. Re-signin

    Problem: read or doze for not many seconds and Windows 10 makes me re-signin. How to avoid or lengthen time? Guru Kirin suggested typing power and sleep, then selecting same. How does one do that? I get the words power and sleep, or by clicking, I get
    them on white field with blue background. But I cannot get to next step: select time. Time is not a choice I can find. Next step goes undone, and I don't achieve goal.
