  1. System failure - admin password is not working.


    Hello, My laptop suddenly had a system failure and I am unable to automatically repair it. I've tried to restart it several times with negative results. I've tried to open the command prompt and reset the PC, however, it tells me the password is incorrect. I normally use a 4 digit pin to log in so I am unsure of the password. I've used every single password I've ever used in the past 10 years and nothing has worked. I reset my Microsoft password and it told me that I used a recent password so I made a new one. This new password also does not work when trying to log in. I've just about given up

    :)

    WIN 10 Admin password not working.


    This really helped and the Hibernate problem was put to rest, however the pswd is not reset. I am following the default option in NT and at some point it is just cycling around, until i choose to quite. I can see the admin has been selected and some attempts are made to clear the register. I says the pswd appears to be blank and suggest to log in with blank pswd. Also when quitting, it asked to write the changes to the disk - y. But when tested later, there still is a password.
    The program looks pretty neat though.

    Some steps from me: on the pc is a guest acc, so no password. This is still something, then i achieve to get to the Recovery and restart. Now I have tried various options like run Safe mode with Command prompt and type the bcdedit command, which is access denied. Option 2 to run just the command prompt also failed, because ask for admin password.

    Guys, is there any way to get rid of the Safe mode from the recovery/ troubleshoot/ advanced options without the admin password?????

    I found this whole story to be really, really big safety issue for this windows. If the only option is to log in to safe mode with the password(no pin) why the hell, they do not ask for it when switching it on?! Poor programming from everywhere! Also some restriction are easy to go around - after couple of days playing around on this issue.
