    Stuck on log in screen. 'Something happened and your pin isn't available'


    Okay, so:I got 4 new ram sticks today, I installed all new ones as per usual. No problems occurred until I turned on my PC.'Something happened and your PIN isn't available. Click to set up your pin again.'So, I clicked the 'Set up my PIN'... Nothing. It took me back to the lock screen, and it was cycle of going back and forth to each screen. I have tried every possible solution to get back into my computer again, really confused as to why this is happening. I don't have any option to change/reset my pin as it's just the lock screen with sections as my internet and shutdown/reset etc.Would real

    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?

  3. Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.

    Log-in Pin is incorrect after Anniversary update


    I had the same issue after my update on Windows 10. I knew that my pin hadn't changed but it was saying it was incorrect. So I said that I forgot my pin and it started going through the steps to reset the pin entered my regular password and when the window popped up to set a new pin I said cancel and then I chose the option to set my pin later. I exited the screen, logged off logged back in, and set up a new pin which happened to be the same pin I had before and it worked. If this still doesn't work I can show step by step screen shots if you need. I have a surface 3 with Windows 10 fully updated 10.0.14393.0
