  1. Something Happened Pin not available. Password no longer recognised.


    After setting up a pin, very next log in....message that "something happened and pin no longer available". Set up pin link non responsive. Then when entering password, the existing password is no longer recognised so can't access command prompt or sys reset. Please help!

    :)

  2. Pin is no longer available and there's no password option

    I just set up a new Surface Laptop but my pin is "no longer available" and I don't have a prompt to put in my password instead. Is there a fix?

    Your PIN is no longer available

    My pin is no longer available, and when I put the password, it doesnt work either. What might have caused this? How to fix it?
