    System restore

    I used a skinpack (I downloaded from, I uninstall it.
    After that I restart PC, the screen is just black (the starting is OK).

    I used ''System restore'' in my other PC, it went back to normal (because I remember password).
    On my other PC I can't remember my password and hint can't show Click image for larger version, I only remember pin
    No reset disk, USB or system image

    I don't want to delete any of my files (I don't want to reinstall Windows)

    Hi john000champ,

    Welcome to the 8forums.

    I assume your account is a microsoft account?
    If it is, you could online reset your password and create a new password.
    With the new password you should be able to log back in.
