    Stuck at safe mode login due to forgotten local password


    I am hoping someone can help me so I don't have to do a fresh install.

    I upgraded my 64 bit Windows 10 Pro to 1903 and my AMD driver started causing reboots reporting issues with Wattman. Solutions online pointed to clearing the driver using AMD's driver tool. Well it booted me into safemode without networking and is now asking for my local login information. Apparently I can't remember the password since I have used the pin to login forever.

    This wouldn't be a big deal, but I can't get it just to boot normally. I even tried rolling back to the latest snapshot, but immediately after it still boots to safe mode. There is no reset password option either. I don't know if I didn't setup the 3 questions, but checking my other PC it doesn't even give me the options to set or change the answers. I am the admin and they are both home PCs. It is using my real name rather than a username so it is almost like an offline Microsoft Account, but it didn't accept my MS password which I verified on my other PC.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on either how to force it to boot into normal Windows? I can then hopefully reset my local password.

    If not any suggestion on removing or resetting the password another way?

    My last resort will be just to buy a new SSD and do a fresh install, but I obviously don't want to do that if I can avoid it.

    :)

  2. Password not accepted in Safe mode

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community forum.

    Have you tried all the above steps suggested by Sangeeta Sarkar on September 13, 2015.

    I would suggest you to provide some information to help you better.

    • Are you trying to login the Microsoft account or the Local account in safe mode?
    • Did you try with only safe mode or safe mode with networking?
    • What is the critical error you are getting?

    If you are using Windows 10. To go to safe mode you have to follow the below steps.

    If you are able to go to login screen in normal mode try the below steps to go to safe mode with networking.


    • At the login screen click on the power symbol.

    • Hold SHIFT + Click Restart.

    • After restarting your system, select the Troubleshoot option.

    • Select advanced options under
      Troubleshoot screen.

    • Click on Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart and follow the onscreen steps to go to
      Safe Mode with networking and check if you are able to login.

    [*]
    Please get back with more information, we will be glad to help you further.

    Stuck on Safe mode, no password.


    Today i launched DDU (Display driver uninstaller),
    And it brought my pc to "Safe-Mode" login screen.

    And when i typed my password , it said its incorrect.
    ( when i enter the local password on a system startup repair or something like that it works, but only at the win 10 safe-mode password bar its not working. Very strange.)

    How could this be possible? When like 2 hours ago i used to login with this password...

    Anyway..
    Im stuck on the "Safe-Mode" login screen.
    ( safe-mode loop )

    What i need to do?
    Tryed alot stuff from other topics and NONE helped .. please help me please.

    I have like 500 gb stored files. I hope i wont have to reset disk.

    If any one will help to me fix it.. big thanks to him...
