Help. Attempted to open up to get into my computer and it is denying my password. Says it is incorrect. I know that it is correct as I have the same one for my iPad and it is working just fine. How do I bypass the password so that I can get into my computer and do work.

Hi Jane,

Welcome to the Forum.

The user account you cannot sign into; is it a local account belonging to Administrative Group, or just a Standard account with no privileges?

Also, is this username registered with a Microsoft account?

Also, have you checked two things:
  • Made sure Caps Lock key is not on, or that some other key is not stuck
  • Confirmed at bottom of logon page the correct language is selected for your keyboard layout

Regards,

Also at this time it would be worth checking the "Number Lock" key ON or OFF. I have been caught with the "Num Lock" more than once.

I had the same problem today after a forced Microsoft 10 update yesterday, I could not log on to my own computer. I found another thread where lots of user seemed to have had this problem. I was able to go to account.live.com/password/reset and get it to reset, but it took several tries. Plus, since I don't recall ever having created a Microsoft account and linking it to my laptop, I had to try all my email address before figuring out which one worked.

So You're still able to reach the Password entry Screen, correct? This has happened to Myself on 2 separate occasions...and the RAGE in which I felt...It's like "WHY IS THIS HAPPENING!" Anyhow, I don't remember exactly WHERE it was that I found out this ability of being able to "fix it"...Said sarcastically, yet still Thankful for finding out about this option that comes with a price...I swear, I even waited a full WEEK to see if My CPU would suddenly GO BACK TO NORMAL...And it DIDN'T. I'm absolutely clueless as to why this happened; ESPECIALLY when I had it occur to Me more than that Once...It's like, "WTF!" WHY did my Computer just all of a sudden choose to perpetually start, as well as continue to go about holding up it's middle finger towards Me...And that Day before, there was not a problem! So Yes...If I hadn't learned of this method, I'd still be stuck back basically in an "Eternal loop" or something like that. Basically, I would not be able to USE the Computer AT ALL if I hadn't found this hardly spoken of method of GETTING BACK IN the Machine; albeit going about using this method DOES come with a price...SO, this is the WARNING regarding using this ability...You're gonna lose ALL Your stuff that You have saved onto Your Computer: Pictures, Writings, Music & and for all of the Gamers out there, it gets even worse for You all, as ALL of Your add-ons and the like are also taken...Never to be seen again...THAT IS...Hmm. Well, YOU KNOW...Until you simply go and Download them yet again! SO...While it may be a tedious ordeal to go about restoring EVERYTHING back as to "Normal"...as to how things USED to be --Unless Someone on here has a method of dealing with this WITHOUT having to go about losing all of Your precious Media, Writings/Poetry, and et cetera...SO, The deal of the matter is, on Your "Enter Password" screen...At the bottom right-handed side, You'll see several options, and of course You'll see Our Buddy, the Power Off/Restart button. You're going to want to click the Power button, and immediately begin to hold down a SHIFT key, simultaneously as You use Your Mouse to click the RESTART option; ALL the while, remember and keep that SHIFT key pressed DOWN until...miraculously, You are given an ability to go about System Restore...Sure, it sucks but if there is no other way to defeat this, You've gotta do what You've gotta do! Yeah, Your stuff is going to be removed...But an addict to the Internet such as Myself, I couldn't stand to be with a Computer that is all but the Trash can's new Buddy for ANY long period of time, whatsoever...So I made the choice, and accepted. It's been over half a Year now, and it hasn't pulled anything like that since. I certainly Hope that this is able to Help out Someone; I hear MANY are having troubles with this issue. Windows 10 is basically like the freaking Nazi Germany of OS's...And if it's THIS BAD now, imagine how much worse it CAN...or, rather WILL get...

Take care, all....
