    Unable to login to pc


    When I try to login using pin it says the pin is not available. I'm not connected to the internet so I'm unable to use my Microsoft account password and my PC password isn't working either.

  2. Locked out of PC unable to login

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are unable to login to the PC. For further clarity on the issue, please respond to the questions below.



    1. What is the exact error message when you try to login to the PC?
    2. Do you have internet connectivity on the PC? If yes, is it wired or wireless?
    3. Do you see any option to sign in using the PIN?


    If you are using Microsoft account and you have reset the password, but still unable to login then I would suggest you to try connecting the PC using an Ethernet cable and then try to login.



    In case you are using a local account, then you may want to refer the article

    Reset your Windows 10 local account password




    Note: Do not perform reset on the PC if you don’t have backup of the data.



    Let us know how it goes.

    1. Is the PC connected to university network/domain network?

    Go back to your previous version of Windows in the article

    In addition, you can also try resetting the password for the university account and check if you are able to login. In order to reset the password please get in touch with the university.
