    Windows 10 Home

    At startup, no password or login prompt


    At Windows startup a login prompt with a password box, user account picture or name does not appear. All i see is my screen saver background. I found a temporary fix which is restarting my computer, then and only then can i type in my password to access my computer. The issue also happens if i put it to sleep, or hibernate, also have to restart computer. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    It may be an issue with Fast Startup. At an Admin command prompt, type (copy/paste this), and press enter.


    powercfg -h off

    Reboot.

    This will turn off Fast Startup and disable hibernation. You will still be able to Sleep the machine.

    Without more info, this is just a good guess since there are issues with Fast Startup and logon, etc.

    You can reverse this by powercfg -h on

    Worth a shot.
