    My Windows8 laptop sends me to password screen again&again

    Hi people! I really need your help urgently. I have a Windows 8 Pro Laptop by ASUS. I have been using Windows 8 for like 6 months now and yesterday I shut down the laptop like I do normally and in the morning when I switched it on, it asked me to enter password like it always does.

    One thing I noticed is that the lock screen wallpaper was removed and it was blue, it was not showing my Microsoft Account picture. Now when I entered my password it took more time then it normally did and it showed "SIGNING OUT" and returned me back to my lock screen. I'm confused, I have entered the password for like 100 times. I can't see any solution on the internet. PLEASE HELP ME.

    - I can't enter safe mode.
    - "Ease of Access" and "Shut Down" buttons on password screen are not working.

    I need to do some project urgently so please help.

    This may or may not have to do with your problem: User Profile Service failed the sign-in - Fix in Windows 8

    And this is another option to try: Refresh Windows 8
