    PC wont boot, need to restore but password not accepted


    Out of nowhere my pc stopped booting to windows, so im in advanced setup and i cannot reset my pc or system restore as it wont accept my password

    I went on another pc and reset my windows live email password, i tried that and went back to the pc and it still wont work

    The pc had auto logic and i tried my usual pass phrases but nothing is working

    How can i reset the pc and keep my files and settings

    The silly thing is startup repair still requires a password, it makes no sense

    Try option 2 on this tutorial from this site: 2 Ways to Remove Windows 10 Administrator Password If Forgot It. My personal favorite method for removing the admin password is with this offline windows password and registry editor tool though. You can obtain it from this site.
