    I'm not sure what is going on, but a password isn't assigned unless you choose to assign one...and it assigns what you choose. Are you saying you typed in a password but don't remember what you picked?

    Do you have anything on the laptop that needs to be saved, like data? If not, I'd follow the tutorial here to do a clean install of Windows 10.

    Hi, if you boot from Win 10 installation medium and navigate to this:

    you may be able to use the bottom option (Roll back)

    What sort of backup disk do you have?
    Simple copies are very basic. Is it a disk image?

    Disk imaging is a great way to give yourself the chance to restore your PC to an exact previously working state in a short time without technical help. E.g. Macrium reflect (free) + its boot disk + external backup storage medium.
