  1. Sign-in Options randomly disappeared and unable to gain access to computer


    Hello!My brother has had his computer for a while about a year and to access his computer he uses a picture password since it is the easiest method he can remember. However, recently when he turned his computer on it prompted his PIN, which I and he have never remembered setting up.Unfortunately, we can't reset the PIN since the email being used is outdated. Also, there aren't any sign-in options at the bottom where you can choose to switch from PIN or Password, which is the first approach we were thinking of.Any help is appreciated, and I can give more detail on our situation.Thanks!

    :)

  2. Unable to access HP Simple Pass to Sign-in to the computer on Windows 10

    Hi Jerome,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community and being a part of Windows 10.

    I understand your concern about accessing HP simple pass after upgrading to Windows 10. We will help you with this issue.

    • Do let us know the make and model of your computer?
    • Have you installed HP simple pass software on your computer?

    Try the below steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to download the latest HP Simple Pass software from the manufacturer's website install it and check if it helps.

    Step 2: If you have already installed the software, I suggest you to re-install it and check if the issue persists.

    Follow the steps to Access Recovery Manager:

    • Press Start button from the keyboard, type Recover Manager.
    • Select Recovery Manager from the list when it becomes available. Allow the action to continue, if prompted. The
      HP Recovery Manager opens.
    • Click Software program re-installation, Next , select
      HP SimplePass for the listing and then follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall application

    Since the previous troubleshooting steps didn't work, we suggest performing a System Restore. This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time. To do so, please check this
    article.

    Note: Follow the steps under Restore from a system restore point.

    Keep us posted.

  4. Sign-in Options randomly disappeared and unable to gain access to computer

    Taskbar doesn't disappear when entering fullscreen

    I tried the Ctrl-Alt-Del and found Windows Explorer. Unfortunately, I didn't choose Restart; I killed the process. (didn't read the instructions well enough!) :-/ ... I did eventually find a way to Restart Windows Explorer, but the problem (disappearing Task bar not disappearing/reappearing as it should/used to) did not solve itself. I then RESTARTED the PC. Still not fixed.

    So, I found another answer from microsoft and followed those steps. It worked! (needed the display driver updated.)

    Here's that set of instructions:

    I suggest you to try updating the Display Adapter drivers check if it works for you.

    Follow the steps to update the Display driver:

    Press Windows Key + X key and click Device Manager.
    Expand ‘Display Adapters’.
    Right-click on the Display Adapter listed and click on ‘Update Driver Software’.
    Select the option to automatically search for the updated driver software.
    Restart the computer after its updated and verify.

    Also try to access the computer manufacturer's website and download the latest chipset and display drivers for your computer and install the same.
