  1. Windows Startup issue demanding password


    I suddenly got an error in my laptop, I tried restarting it and when the restart began, it showed diagnosing pc, before I restarted my laptop I ran a restore point because I thought something is going on in my laptop, I tried to click the command prompt to fix the error, I selected my account and it brought me in an screen demanding for a password, I clearly remember that I didn't set a password for my account, please help me, my laptop is my only source of happiness and helping me would be wonderful

  2. Windows Startup password

    Is it possible to remove a startup password without being able to log into the system? A friend's laptop just prompt her today for a password that she never enabled. Now, she does have a standard user account password, but that doesn't work for the startup password. She had the computer for about a year now and it has never asked for a startup password until today.

    I tried to use Hiren Boot CD to run a diagnostic on the laptop, but it has a bsod. Windows 10 normal boot crashes as well

  3. Windows Startup password

    Yes, I'm sure there wasn't a Microsoft account on the laptop. When I set it up, she didn't want one

    So I had to do a factory restore on the laptop. All boot methods would crash. I found out the owner was duped into giving a scammer access to her computer. That's how the startup password got set.

    See its not the same as the account login password prompt

    Thanks for the link! I will most definitely save it and use it when needed
