  1. No password prompt on startup


    After starting Windows 10, there is no password prompt displayed. After holding the power button to restart, I can still access the BIOS setup. Mouse and keyboard are fully working. However, after trying to restart, everything appears to be booting/loading as normal, but there is no password prompt displayed. The wallpaper and clock show as you would expect, just no password prompt Wallpaper resets if I CTRL-ALT-DEL.


    I've tried several methods I've heard online such as restarting 3 times to pull up winRE, but it's not working at all on my PC. Any help would that doesn't result in me reinstalling windows and losing all my programs be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Windows Startup password

    Is it possible to remove a startup password without being able to log into the system? A friend's laptop just prompt her today for a password that she never enabled. Now, she does have a standard user account password, but that doesn't work for the startup password. She had the computer for about a year now and it has never asked for a startup password until today.

    I tried to use Hiren Boot CD to run a diagnostic on the laptop, but it has a bsod. Windows 10 normal boot crashes as well

  3. At startup, no password or login prompt


    At Windows startup a login prompt with a password box, user account picture or name does not appear. All i see is my screen saver background. I found a temporary fix which is restarting my computer, then and only then can i type in my password to access my computer. The issue also happens if i put it to sleep, or hibernate, also have to restart computer. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    No password prompt on startup

    At startup, no password or login prompt


    @Stranded360

    It may be an issue with Fast Startup. At an Admin command prompt, type (copy/paste this), and press enter.


    powercfg -h off

    Reboot.

    This will turn off Fast Startup and disable hibernation. You will still be able to Sleep the machine.

    Without more info, this is just a good guess since there are issues with Fast Startup and logon, etc.

    You can reverse this by powercfg -h on

    Worth a shot.
