    New stray account appeared after replacing CPU


    Hello everyone.
    I recently upgraded my CPU from a Ryzen 2700X to a Ryzen 5800X. All is well except for the appearance of a stray account on my login screen. It has the same name as my account which is my only account. And only one account shows up in the User Accounts settings. The stray account causes a delay in startup, but once I click on my normal account, I can enter my PIN and get right in. How can I get rid of the stray account?

  3. How to replace old Microsoft Account with a new Microsoft Account

    Hi Hitendra,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community. I understand your concern and I am glad to assist you.

    I would suggest you to switch your Microsoft account to a Local account first and then switch back with a new Microsoft account. Please refer to the following steps:

    Step 1:

    • Type Manage your accounts
      in the search bar and click on it
    • Click on "sign in with a local account instead"
    • Press next and complete the process.
    • If you do not have a local account, leave the credentials blank and proceed.

    Step 2: Now, on the newly converted Local account, follow these steps to add a new MSA.

    1. In the Start search, type "Manage your accounts" and press Enter.

    2. Choose 'Accounts'.

    3. Click on "sign in with a local account instead"

    4. Enter the Microsoft account ID and Password and click Next.

    Hope this post helps. Get back to us for further queries. We are happy to help!

    cpu upgrade - w10 wont boot

    Replacing disks is no problem.

    In my experience, replacing motherboards almost always results in crashes.

    You could run this experiment:

    • Create an image of your System partition. Store in on an external USB disk.
    • Insert the new CPU.
    • Install Windows. I bet that it will work flawlessly.
    • Restore the image you created in Step 1.
