  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.

    Hide the administrator account in the login screen?


    Hi lolcocks! In Windows XP, the built-in administrator account is disabled by default, it is invisible at Windows login screen but you can access it from safe mode. Things have changed since Windows Vista, if an account is disabled, you're unable to access it from either normal mode or safe mode.

  4. Unable to login to my administrator account in safe mode.

    Unable to login as an Administrator on Windows 10.

    Hi Miguel,



    The above issue might occur if you don’t know or do not have the administrator rights of the user profile on the computer.



    Before we assist further, I would like to ask you a few questions:

    • How many user accounts are present on the computer?
    • When you say “I cant log in as an Administrator”, are you not able to login or do you not have an administrator user profile in the computer?


    If you have an administrator user account on the computer, I suggest you to login or ask the user to convert your user account to administrator user account and check if the issue is resolved.



    To give administrator permission, follow the steps below:



    • Press Windows logo + X keys on the keyboard and select
      Control panel from the context menu.
    • Click on Change account type under User accounts.
    • Select the user account from the window and click on Change the account type.
    • Select Administrator radio button and click on
      Change account type
      .
    • Close the window and logout from the current user account and check if the changes are effective.


    If you do not have an administrator user account on the computer, boot the computer in
    Safe mode and check if similar issue persists.



    Safe mode is a diagnostic mode that starts your computer with limited drivers necessary to run Windows. The words
    Safe Mode appear at the corners of your monitor to identify which Windows mode you are using. Logging into
    Safe mode will help in diagnosing if the issue is caused due to the corrupted user profile or the services disabled on the PC.



    Expand the options to boot into Safe Mode:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/start-your-pc-in-safe-mode



    Reboot the PC to exit from Safe mode.



    To know more about Safe mode, following is an article on
    Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode) (Applies to Windows 10 also):

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/windows-startup-settings-safe-mode



    Write to us with the status of not able to login into the administrator user profile on the computer in the same post for further assistance. Your reply is most important for us to ensure we assist you accordingly.



    Thank you.
