  • your options are very limited.

    try a blank password, or try password, as your password, or any other password that you might think of.

    failing these two options, then you will need to reinstall windows

  • I tried several passwords or combinations to no avail.  I can't open the computer past the welcome page of windows 10 so I can't effect a re-installation.  I have been in contact with windows support and a Microsoft store nearby but no help.

  • you don't need to log into windows, to start a new installation.  If your boot devices are setup correctly in bios, simply put the DVD into the DVD drive, (or bootable USB drive), reboot, and the installation will commence

  • What name is appearing on your screen?

    If it's your Microsoft account, input password for Microsoft account.

  • One more thing....note this forum is for questions on Microsoft Certifications...not the best choice for WinDoze 10 troubleshooting.  Try the Microsoft Community forums.
