    Stuck at PIN creation on new computer


    I have a brand new computer that I bought from Eluktronics. I am going through the Windows set-up and I keep getting stuck at the create PIN section. When I click the create button it just spins and seems to freeze. I have re-started my computer several times and each time I get stuck at this section. Any ideas on the issue?

    :)

    Stuck at PIN creation on new computer

    Why doesn't my pin work with the anniversary edition?

    Hi Nancy,

    We would like to know more about the issue. Before you had the Anniversary Update, were you using an 8-digit PIN?

    For the meantime, we suggest that you remove the current PIN and create a new PIN. You can do that by following these steps:

    • Select the Start button, type Settings, and select it from the list of results.
    • Choose Accounts.
    • Select Sign-in options.
    • Under PIN, select Remove.

    After you have deleted your current PIN, create a new 4-digit PIN by following these steps:

    • Select the Start button, type Settings, and select it from the list of results.
    • Choose Accounts.
    • Select Sign-in options.
    • Under PIN, select Add.

    Once you have created your new 4-digit PIN, restart your computer and sign-in using the new 4-digit PIN.

    Note: It is very important that you remove then create a new PIN rather than changing the current PIN.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.
