locked out of a pc RRS feed

  • Question

  • so I locked myself out of a Lenovo thinkcentre M83 (all-in one) and I have no pw set to reset it and it's running w8.1. I need help, I tried to go in through the bios but I can't get it unlocked from there either. all I was successful at doing was creating a pw for turning on the pc not logging into it. it's brand new and I didn't set the new user up but I set the admin pw up without adding a new user or user pw. can anyone please help me?

    The TechNet Wiki Discussion Forum is a place for the TechNet Wiki Community to engage, question, organize, debate, help, influence and foster the TechNet Wiki content, platform and Community.

    Please note that this forum exists to discuss TechNet Wiki as a technology/application.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.

  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Windows 8.1 forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    Once there, click on Participate near the top of the screen, and select 'Ask a Question' or 'Start a Discussion'

  • Also since it is brand new you could try Lenovo support.
