Locked out of PC Comment from MUBEEZI MICAH @ 10/12/2013
Dear Richard,
I just bought an HP envy 4-1117nr. It had Windows 8 pre-installed. Everything worked OK to set up my account.  I even activated my Norton anti virus. Upon restart, it tells me my password is incorrect. I am locked out now.
I have done a google search with no real helpful solution although many people have encountered the same problem.
What can I do?
MICAH


Reply from Richard Rost:

Make sure CAPS LOCK isn't on - or perhaps it was when you entered your password the first time.

Beyond that, you might just have to reboot into system recovery mode and reinstall Windows. Sucks, but that's what happens when your password doesn't work. Sorry I don't have a better solution for you.
