    Something happened and your PIN isn't available. Click to set up your PIN again.

    Something happened and your PIN isn't available. Click to set up your PIN again.

    I have a old PC updated to W10. I decided to use the PIN code, but now I get the message "Something happened and your PIN isn't available. Click to set up your PIN again."

    When I click 'Set up my PIN' nothing, the same message reappears.

    I looked up the issue on the internet and found that I should login using another sign-in option. However, there is no way to get to another option. The text above is all I see on the screen.

    "Something happened and your PIN isn't available. Click to set up your pin again"

    "Something happened and your PIN isn't available. Click to set up your pin again" but when I click "set up pin", it loads forever and then nothing happens.

    This is happening every time I restart my pc.

    No, I can't log-in.

    No, there's no "login with password",

    no, restarting doesn't help.

    If this doesn't work, there are other procedures available to consider.
    --- Some of them include registry changes.
    --- Are you familiar with working in the registry?

    BTW, have you saved your data along with a system image backup ready?
