Microsoft Account - Cannot Login / Won't Accept Password
Mar 5, 2013
I have a new Samsung lap top nd set up the Microsoft account to an email address - it is the main one for my computer but wont accept the password, I have changed it several times and each time I try again I have the same problem - I can't get into things as its looking for the password which it wont accept! I have deleted the account hoping that would prompt something - but no - even more problems!! I do have another account that I have set up and have added as an additional user - how do I get this one onto the main one for my lap top? as I am no further forward except wishing I hadn't bought the lap top or windows *!
The problem is i can't connect to microsoft to login or use microsoft account on my windows app. When i open windows store apps message shows "Youre PC isn't connected to internet. To use the store, connect to the internet and try again.". When i tried to switch to microsoft account and login my account then it loads after that it show "The service isn't available right now - Try again later." I having this problem for more than two weeks until now. I tried a couple of time to refresh the windows - no luck same problem. Tried to restart and re-install windows - same problem.
Even when i tried to install Adobe photoshop and need to sign in nothing happens it keeps on loading to sgin in page. I tried to open adobe website and it open normally i can check any adobe page. But when i tried to download flash player no download button. So luckily i download it in other computer or i use google chrome. When i tried to click the sign in in adobe website it opens the login/sign page with white page and a html text on it but can't login. I tried and check with adobe forum but i can't post my problem because i cannot sign in. I check with other forums but no luck.
On my Facebook problem. I can open normally my facebook account/page read feeds, upload pics, upload vids. But when i tried to watch facebook videos post/feeds just loading the black screen videoit keeps on loading no luck to watch it or play. Youtube videos normally playing. I tried to check all even my graphics card, windows display tried to check everything even ask from others forum until now no answer and no luck.
I can open all my problems and error normally in other computer. So i think the problem is in my PC or windows. But tried to scan for error and troubleshoot no problems.
1. During installation while configuring the user account it will as for a Microsoft account Login - Enter firstname.lastname@example.org and blabla in the respective fields - press enter. 2. It may ask for a Security Code to verify because the account doesn't exist or confirm it is yours. 3. You will be able to "see" Create Local Account. Just click on it and enjoy.
I tried booting up my PC which has Windows 8 installed and it was working fine until yesterday.
It has a "Enter Password" screen upon start-up and I think it's a virus because it only lets me enter 10 characters and even though, I do put in the correct password, it still says it's incorrect. The computer also shuts down after 3 unsuccessful attempts.
I want to be able to use the store and stuff, and you have to be logged into your microsoft account for that. I don't want my computer to have a password though. And if you have your microsoft account as your logged in, then you have to use that password. How can I change this?
Basically as the title reads, how can I reset the password when I have two step verification turned on. I got to the website, can't access my account. Select forgot my password but when I don't have access to the two step verification email I can not fill in the UE form or use any other proofs because TWO STEP verification blocks it.
Microsoft account is taking over the computer. I have two administrator accounts, both set with equal priorities, but on two different domains, one is a Microsoft Account and the other is the AD (local)domain. The problem is that when I am logged in under my AD account, whenever I do anything that requires administrator approval, the system does not accept the AD account approval, even though I am logged in with it at the time...it only accepts the Microsoft account login and password as approval for any action.
is there any way to approve actions with the account that is logged in at the time of use, not necessarily the microsoft account?
I am a system administrator in a large enterprise environment and we are doing a rollout of Windows 8.1. In our image capture we somehow captured a setting that is disabling users from setting up a connected account with their domain account. I am relatively sure that it is in my unattend and I can fix it for machines going forward but I really don't want to have to reimage the machines I've already deployed.
When I go to connect an account, the "connect to a Microsoft account" option is grayed out and the "some settings are managed by your administrator" message is displayed at the top. This is NOT a group policy object that is applying. The machines are in a test OU and there is absolutely no policy applied. I have searched all through local policy and even did a search through the registry for "account" (that took forever) but have been unable to find any registry key or local policy that would be causing this issue.
What setting might be causing this? I have 30+ machines already out in the environment and the user experience is going to be terrible if I have to reimage them all.
Apparently, Microsoft has established a new requirement for the 8.1 Preview where one must use a valid Microsoft account login (I could not find an easy way to establish just a local login). With that said, you can create an auto-login process, using your Microsoft account, so you can bypass the requirement to manually type a password. This bypass is only recommended for those who maintain their PC/Laptop in a secure environment:
Log On User Account Automatically at Windows 8 Startup
I brought an Acer Revo Nettop PC on Ebay , the PC is running Windows 8 but the seller didnt restore the PC so i have his log on appear at the Windows log on screen.
He wont provide me his password so i can log on and restore and clean up the PC and to remove him and add myself. The PC doesnt has a disk drive as its a Nettop so i cant user a restore disk or anything.
Can I stop windows from asking me to enter my password for microsoft account every time i turn on my laptop? I tried using local account it worked but i had to use microsoft account again to get access to app store and mail app.
Win 8.1 .... Switch to a Microsoft account on this PC. The password you entered is incorrect. Try again.
Can make the password visible, it is correct. Running no version of webroot. Restore the computer to a time when the password worked, it never has even though it is correct for signing into my account on the micro website. Changed my password and still no success.
For some reason I forgot my Microsoft password on my new box. It won't let me access it. I've tried every password I have ever used and the only thing it says is to go to access.live.com to reset my password. I'm afraid to try it on this computer for fear it will lock me out of this one too. It is MY computer. I'd really rather NOT have any security on it at all since no one else would use it without my permission, anyway. Justa gigantic
When computer starts up it has the screen showing date and time. As soon as I touch any key, a green screen with email address pops up. It wants me to type in password. Once I type the password in it tells me my PC is offfline. Please sign in with the last password used on the PC. I have no desktop, nothing. Just goes back and forth between these two screens.
Is there a way to reset a microsoft account?Several times I have formatted and reinstalled and each time when it asks whether I want to use the settings already assigned to my profile or not...and selecting No...it still seems to be bring things over like the wallpaper etc.
So to be clear, fresh install....during final stages, it asks to create a login or sign in using a microsoft account which is what I do. When I do this, it asks whether I want to use the settings already on the profile...I say no I want to set it up as a new PC and yet still wallpaper comes back (Sony vaio wallpaper)
I'm just thinking if the wallpaper comes back..what else does? So I want to know whether there is a way (apart from closing the account and recreating it) to reset the profile so nothing is attached to it.
My Win 8 installation, upon a power on startup or restart, booted to the Start screen without going through the process of logging in. I don't recall how I accomplished that. I just upgraded to 8.1 and it insists on logging into my MS account and requires I enter my account password.
I just bought a new Windows 8 Dell Vostro 5470 laptop. I signed in with my Live account, which I use on my main computer everyday.
I upgraded into Windows 8.1, and set up fingerprint authentication as well. I didn't have a problem signing in with it, nor with my 12-character password (which I used today on my PC to log in).
Last night I locked the laptop (from the ctrl+alt+del screen) and left it. By the time I got back, it went into hibernation or something. Meaning to say, it looked turned off. I didn't touch it until today.
When I turn it back on today, I couldn't sign in. Neither the fingerprint wasn't working, nor my password - but then on a closer look, I saw that I couldn't enter more than 9 characters in the password field! Restart didn't work. Reminder - my password is 12 characters long and I used it just the day before.
Disclaimer: this is a brand new laptop, nothing is installed on it. The only things I did with it were Windows Update, upgrade to 8.1, set up fingerprint log-in and surf the web a little bit. I don't mind totally resetting everything, I just don't know how to do it.
