    Requesting PIN after update to Windows 10


    Hello, I apologize in advance. I cannot get to my desktop to get the version number. After a recent update, my HP All in one is asking me for a PIN instead of the password I usually use. I never set up a PIN. After entering the PIN too many times it is asking me to enter A1B2C3 in the dialog box. When I do, it asks me for a PIN. Any help resetting this so I can get to my desktop is greatly appreciated. I tried to uninstall the update but it gave me a message that it could not be done. Thanks in advance for your help

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. pin request

    Hi sanjay28



    Thank you for posting and welcome to Nokia forum! :Cool:



    Your Nokia device requests PIN (Personal Identification Number) code to protect your SIM card and device against unauthorized use. Note that all PIN code is provided by your network operator. Nokia is not able
    to provide you PIN or PUK codes.



    Please note the following:



    • When your insert your SIM card and boot up your device for the first time, you need to enter the PIN code. For security reasons it is recommended to change it to your own code, instructions on how to change the PIN code in your
      device is provided in the user guide or Nokia web site. If the PIN code is entered incorrectly multiple times, your device may request a PUK code to futher validate the user's identity and to unlock and change the blocked PIN code.


    • The PIN2 code is a PIN code which acts as a second layer of protection for certain features of your phone. If the PIN2 code is entered incorrectly multiple
      times, your phone may request a PUK2 code.
    If you have forgotten or simply do not know the codes, you must contact your Network Operator for assistance. However, if you have already contacted but the code does not work, you should consider getting a new SIM card from your Network Operator.
