    Windows 10 lock screen randomly does not work, says "something went wrong on our end....


    Hi all,


    I have a very frustrating issue. I have set up fingerprint scan, pin and a password as log-in options. I rarely shut down my laptop, usually closing it and sending it to sleep.


    Without a perceived pattern, when I return to it, it will randomly return the error message "something went wrong on our end. please try again" when i try to unlock it with my fingerprint. Neither pins or password works either. The only way to log back in is by restarting the laptop, losing any unsaved files.


    This is specific to this account, because I can log in normally into a backup account.


    I noticed that usually the wifi is disconnected when this happens, but I don't know if it's related. What could be the cause?



    Windows specs: 10 Home; version 1809; build 17763.805.

    :)
