  1. PIN Issues at Login


    Since this morning I have not been able to log in to my husbands HP all in one computer. Running WINDOWS 10. It was working fine last night but this morning unending frustration.


    At first we were stuck on the lock screen and had no request for PIN then somehow I got the PIN screen to appear but it says Something happened and your PIN isn't available. Click to reset your PIN again.

    Two options displayed : Setup my PIN or sign in options I tried the setup my PIN also tried the sign in options but no joy there either.


    Then got the message "something went wrong

    We weren't able to setup your PIN You can try again, or skip this step and setup a PIN later."

    Trying again gets me right back to where I started and skip is not clickable.

    I'm sure I'm using the correct Microsoft account password because I just used it to log into this forum.


    I am not able to do anything except shut down the computer I have tried hard reboot but nothing seems to help.

    :)
