    Stuck in safe mode w/o password, tried everything


    Hi,


    Yesterday I booted into safe mode by checking the option on msconfig in order to remove some malware. When I reached the login screen I couldn't log into my computer because I didn't know I need to have to use my account password and not my PIN (which I always use). So I reset my account password from my phone (I'm using my account right now) but it wouldn't accept my new password. I'm currently stuck in safe mode, and here's what I tried (and didn't work):


    - I tried using the advance startup options (the hold shift - power thing) to enable safe mode with networking, but it still wouldn't accept my new password although I managed to get internet connection.


    - I also tried using the advance startup options to use the command prompt, but it still asks me for a password and says mine is incorrect (although I'm uaing that account right now).


    I am aware that a clean install is an option but I can't afford to lose my files.


    Thanks.

    :)

  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 in safe mode in windows 10

    Safe mode is intended to help fix most, if not all problems within an operating system, it's not good if we got stuck on it. To correct this, we suggest that you follow the steps below to exit out of Safe mode:

    • Open Run command by pressing Windows key + R
      keys on the keyboard and type msconfig in the command box and press
      Enter.
    • Under General tab, put a check on Normal Startup option.
    • Reboot the system and check if the changes are effective.

    Let us know if you are able to exit out of Safe mode with these steps.
