    When I turn on my computer, it says I have an incorrect password. After I click on okay, I am prompted to sign in again, but after clicking on sign in it does not give me the option to type a password, but it just says incorrect password. I'm unable to fix this problem with safe mode reset nor reversing the update nor reset to the computer keeping files.

    Please advice!

    :)

  3. Windows 10 password incorrect! password changed automatically!?

    • Are you trying to log in using your Microsoft account?
    • No.
    • Have you tried resetting your password?
    • Yes I did, but of course it asks for my old password which when I enter it says it's incorrect. I also tried setting a PIN but again it asks for my password.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Thanks,
