    Win 10 Password reset now can't log in- Microsoft account/pin


    I was stuck in a loop booting to safe mode. My user account is attached to a LIVE logon and a PIN instead of password. I followed a guide on how to reset the password. I did that but was still blocked so I was able to create a new user. Now I am unable to log in with my account because it says RPC failure. I think that's because it's no longer able to connect to Microsoft.

    How can I undo this and regain my access to that account?

    Can you access your Microsoft account from another PC and check/reset your password from there?

    Password works from other PC's. I now can log in 80% of the time. Sometimes it gives me RPC errors. I tried to switch from a Microsoft account to a local account and it's throwing this error " your microsoft account wasn't changed to a local account 0x800004005"
