Once the password ***** ***** use the new password ***** sign in to your windows 10.Make sure the laptop have internet connection.

I reset and signed into Microsoft account

Did you use the same password ***** sign in to windows 10 Surface pro 4 too also did it work.

No im locked out

You mean using the new password ***** you used to sign in to microsoft account isn't working on the windows 10 sign in ?

Ask Your Own Computer Question

Did you make sure the internet connection to the laptop is working because after the password ***** ***** needs internet connection to verify the password ***** that also didn't work do you have another email account which is linked with microsoft account ?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
