  1. "Something happened and pin is no longer available"


    Hi there, I recently updated windows 10 and this is the message that has come up. The problem I have is that I have no idea what the password is and my account isn't an online one as i've tried resetting the password and it doesnt work so it must be a local one. Is there any way to get windows to allow me to enter the pin as i know exactly what this is? Thanks

    Pin no longer available message on start up. Tells me to go to settings etc. How do you go to settings when you can't get past the start up screen?

    Can't use my PIN to login any longer

    Hi Tim,

    To further assist you in signing in to your Windows computer, you can follow the steps provided below:


    • From your
      lockscreen, check if the "Sign-in option" is available.

    • Then click the option to use PIN.

    • Enter PIN.


    If that didn't work, we highly suggest that you create a new account/PIN that you can use to log in to your computer.
