  1. Unable to enter password when Windows 10 boots up.


    When I turn on my Acer PC Windows 10 boots up to the wallpaper screen where the date and time are showing in the lower left corner and the monitor is showing in the lower right corner.



    When I press any key to bring up where I enter the password the screen goes black for a few seconds then the wallpaper screen comes back. I've tried this many times with the same results.



    I have tried turning the PC off three times while it's booting up and this did not fix the problem.



    I've also tried to get into safe mode while booting up and have not been able to by pressing the shift an F8 key.


    Would appreciate any help.

    :)

  2. Unable to login after entering account password in windows 10

    Hi Vanshaj

    Thank you for your reply.

    I somehow managed to get a bootable dvd of windows 10 and tried running chkdsk command but it did not helped.

    I tried following steps to create a new profile:

    • boot from windows 10 dvd.
    • Opened cmd by hitting SHIFT+F10.
    • By default it was showing X:\source>
    • I tried to look for windows\system32 in both C: and D: drives (though my windows was installed in CUnable to enter password when Windows 10 boots up. :).
    • But was able to locate it in X:\windows\system32
    • when i tried renaming utilman.exe it was unable to locate utilman.exe in system32 folder
    • I tried renaming sticky keys exe (sethc.exe) too but was unable to find it too.
    Please suggest if anything else can be done to save my personal data.

    Thanks

    You can reset your password following the next steps:

    • Reboot your computer / Turn your computer on.
    • Hold down the Shift key at the start of the boot process to enable the GNU GRUB boot menu (if it does not show)
    • Press ESC at the GNU GRUB prompt.
    • Press e for edit.
    • Use the Arrow keys to highlight the line that begins with kernel and press the e key.

    unable to remove windows logon password


    unable to remove windows logon password

    went to control panel user accounts and there is no longer a ' remove password ' option as with windows 7

    i changed the settings to ' not require a password on logon' but made no difference at all

    it now boots saying password wrong, until I enter a password then all ok...

    MS suggest adding a new account and logging in with that without a password then deleting the old one.....

    does not not work as the add account is greyed out.

    cant see why this is so difficult..

    as as a side issue since trying to remove the windows logon password I am now presented on boot up with an OS choice wi cows 10 or 7.... I am certain this wasn't there before..

    any my help would be appreciated
    thanks
