    Windows 10 On Safe Mode Won't accept my Password, I'm stuck!


    I was having an issue loading a program on my computer so I wanted to try running my Windows 10 computer in safe mode. I enabled safe mode via msconfig and checked the "With Network" option. I then restarted my computer and it brought my to my login in safe mode. The login screen shows my name and the normal space for me to enter my password. The issue is I couldn't remember my password and since the computer is in safe mode I can't use my pin number. The computer shows that it isn't connected to the internet even though I have a wired Ethernet connection to the PC. When I click on the internet connection button next to the power button on the login screen it just shows an option for airplane mode. I didn't notice that my PC wasn't connected to the internet so I changed my password online on my laptop hoping that I could then log in on my PC but when I returned to my PC that's when I realized it wasn't showing a connection to my PC.

    I really really need help with this because as of right now I'm totally locked out of my computer and I have really important work/school files on there. I need to get back on my PC as soon as possible, if anyone can help I'll be refreshing this page non stop.

    :)

  3. 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.
