    Windows 10 Not Accepting Password/Pin


    I recently bought a new video card, I switched from AMD to Nvidia. After I uninstalled my old drivers, I rebooted, and now Windows 10 is no longer accepting my pin I'm 100% putting it in correctly. My computer is connected to my Microsoft account, so I tried my Microsoft password, as well, without luck. I've also tried booting into safe mode, and even tried to reinstall Windows but it asked me for a pin, to do that too, so that was a no go. I also don't think my PC is connecting to the internet, I don't know if that could be part of the problem, but I dont see a way to connect, without being logged in.


    Does anyone have the fix for this? I wanna play some games on this new card!


    Thanks!

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade problem, no input accepted

    I really hate having to come here and ask for help, but I really am stumped. It hurts my geek pride. I have a PC with fairly modern hardware in it. It has a p8p67 pro in it. I have tried upgrading windows 10 on it twice now. Both times I have had the same result.

    After windows finishes upgrading it goes to the log in/set up screen. I can't do anything. No keyboard or mouse input is accepted.

    I will list some, or hopefully all, of the troubleshooting steps I have tried:
    • Move keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
    • Try different keyboard or mouse.
    • Restart computer, repeatedly.
    • Google for related issues.
    • Update Bios, because why not.
    • Create boot media and revert to windows 7.
    The windows 10 system restore boot media works fine with keyboard and mouse. All USB ports work in windows 7. I don't know what is wrong. I suspect that windows 10 is lacking a driver of some sort, but since the computer accepts no input I have no way of checking for which driver let alone installing it.

    Please help me figure this out. If I have to revert back to windows 7 again, I am not going to get it upgraded to windows 10. Thank you in advanced.
