    Windows 10 updated and now pin does not work


    Windows 10 updated laptop that was given to me used and now I can not use the pin to OPEN UP the laptop. The account name is in the old name of the person that had it before and they are now deceased. So I can not ask them any information. I just want to open up my computer and I have no idea how . Unless I can somehow change the contact information on the account to my email address? anyone know how to do that? Windows 10 and all of the constant updates suck.

    :)

  3. Get Windows 10 now, no line, Force the update

    If your tired of waiting like I was on a few machines, here is the simple way to get Windows 10 Update to forcibly start ahead of waiting in the line.

    1: Go to Windows Update, change the settings by clicking both check boxes under Microsoft Update and Recommended Updates.

    2: Then Change the Important Updates Area to say "Install updates Automatically" on the drop down menu.

    3: Next open up CMD by right clicking on it and saying "Run as Administrator" (If you do not know where CMD is just click the start search area and type CMD)

    4: Once CMD is opened, type this command (But do not hit enter yet) wuauclt.exe /updatenow

    5: Next go back to the Windows update area and click "Check for Updates"

    6: Now go back to the CMD line and hit enter

    You should now be downloading Windows 10.

    It worked on every machine I have done this method for, you just have to have all the settings exactly what I listed and it works fine (Some people were not changing the Important Updates area drop down to say "Install Updates Automatically" which I found is required).

    Hope this helps some of yall who want to get Windows 10 now, works great for me!

    Windows 10 PIN Sign-in

    Hi Pat,

    It is possible that the PIN set in an earlier build does not work after reinstalling Windows 10. To better assist you, we'd like clarify few things:

    • Which build and version of Windows 10 is installed on your computer?
    • Which build and version of Windows 10 are you using before reinstalling Windows?
    • Have you tried resetting your PIN?
    • Did you get any error messages after you verified the PIN you entered?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you follow the steps in this
    article
    on how you can reset your PIN.

    Keep us posted if you need additional help.
