  2. Pin not working after BIOS Update

    Hi Max,

    It seems that your operating system was no longer aligned with your BIOS after installing a BIOS update for your HD3P main board.

    For us to diagnose and address the problem, we suggest starting your computer in safe mode and check if the PIN is working while in that state. If it's working, then a 3rd party application may have caused the issue. To start your PC in safe mode, please
    see
    Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10
    .

    If the PIN is not working in safe mode, then a reset is suggested to correct the problem. The operating system should always go with the BIOS. If the BIOS is freshly updated, then the OS has to be fresh as well. Check out
    Reset your PC in the link,
    Recovery options in Windows 10 for the steps.

    Let us know how it goes so we can further assist you.

    Regards.

  3. Can't add or reset Windows 10 sign in Pin

    Hi,

    For us to narrow down your concern with adding or resetting Windows 10 PIN, we would like to know the following:

    • Are you using an administrator access?
    • When you say "no change, no remove, no reset in Windows 10 PIN settings", is it greyed out or the option missing (a screenshot is much appreciated)?
    • Were there any changes made on your computer prior to the issue (e.g., updates, software installation)?
    • Can you tell us what troubleshooting steps have you done so far to resolve this?

    We look forward to your response.

    Pin not working after BIOS Update

    Hello,

    the PIN option is no longer working after updating the BIOS of my Gigabyte B150 HD3P Mainboard. I'm running Windows 10 Pro 64bit. (using current branch for business)

    More Infos:

    • restaring the machine didn't help (unsurprisingly)
    • Picturecode login still works
    • I've already set the grouppolicy to enable pin login
    • In the loginoptions menu is shows me the possibility to add a pin

      Problem: When I click the button it asks for my old pin. I enter the old pin, the window just disappears.

      Problem2: Forgot Pin tells my to remove the pin with the button "remove pin" - this button is not visible

    This basically deprives me of all options I know - apart from resetting everything - I certainly am not planing on doing that again...
