    Surface won't accept Pin - "This sign in option is disabled because of failed sign in attempts or repeated shutdowns."

    I have the same problem, in that my Microsoft Surface will not accept my PIN login since the last update (? about 2 weeks ago). I get the error message " this sign in option is disabled because of failed sign in attempts or repeated shutdowns. Use a different
    sign in option or keep your device powered on for at least two hours and then try again". I have done this without success.

    I have now tried the solution above you gave, but this has not worked either. Please advise.

  3. Windows 10 desktop keeps locking. Says "this sign-in option is disabled because of failed sign-in attempts or repeated shutdowns."

    I would like to disable the feature that locks the computer due to "failed sign-in attempts or repeated shutdowns." Twice it's happened, and it's a major pain. I realize that it's a security feature, but I feel that given my home situation - very secure
    - I am willing to take the risk.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sign-In option is disabled because of failed sign-in attempts or repeated shutdowns

    Morning,

    I have a Desktop machine that was working fine last week.

    A colleauge of mine changed the pin but forgot to tell us what it was when she left.

    We tried what we thought was the default pin a couple of times, then contacted her for the correct pin.

    When we ented the pin, we for the "Sign-In option is disabled" error code. We have left the machine over night but the message is still present. In regards to troubleshooting:

    • Rebooted the device,
    • Left the device running for over 12 hours,
    • Attempted to use the Password option, but same error (This is the correct password),
    • We then try to Reset Password but do not have access to a Reset disk,
    • We have an Admin account but do not have access to the password as the employee has now left.

    Thank you
