  1. Pin to sign in doesn't work


    I need to delete an old printer but can't get into the account created for windows when I set up the pc.

    A window pops up saying sign in with the pin but it doesn't work. It is not the Microsoft account because I have changed it.

    How can I recover this pin or change it to have admin privileges?



    Thanks for any response.

    Betty

    :)

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.


    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?
