    Pin no longer works on laptop and hotmail password changed after update!

    Hello,

    If your PIN is not working after an update, it could be that you may need to recreate your PIN, or that an application is blocking you from signing in using your PIN, etc. For us to isolate the issue in signing in using your PIN, kindly respond to the questions
    below:

    • When attempting to sign in using your PIN, are there any error messages? If there are, what is the exact error message that you get?
    • Which update was installed on your device recently?
    • Aside from resetting the PIN, what other troubleshooting steps have you done so far? This is for us to know and to avoid any duplication of efforts on your end.

    We look forward to your response.

    Windows 98 and ME no longer updatable...

    Quite right, XP is still listed in technet. Win 98 unfortunately isn't. Windows 3.1 and 3.2 are listed though.

  4. Windows update pin not longer working so can't use laptop

    Laptop no longer charging since Windows 10 update

    If the laptop works without the battery then charger is functioning correctly. Take a cloth with a bit of rubbing alcohol on it (or some on-the-go alcohol swabs), and clean the metal contacts that connect your battery to your laptop.

    Make sure to install all Windows important updates.

    Install latest versions of your laptop device drivers you can download the latest device drivers from the device manufacturer or from your laptop manufacturer website.


    Step 1

    1. Shutdown your laptop.

    2. Remove the battery.

    3. Connect the AC power adapter to your laptop.

    4. Power on the laptop

    5. Open the Device Manager by typing Devmgmt.msc into Start Menu or from Control Panel.

    6. Under the Batteries category, right-click all of the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery listings, and select Uninstall (it’s ok if you only have 1).

    4. When you login to Windows OS connect the battery while Windows OS working.





    Step 3

    Reset the System Management Controller. Use one of these methods to reset the SMC, which controls battery management, battery status light.

    1. Shut down the computer and disconnect the power cord.

    2. Remove the battery.

    3. Press and hold the power button for ten seconds.
