    Hello Zalliesify, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Is this for a Microsoft account?

    If so, make sure that you have the computer connected to the internet, and try entering your password again.

    If you still get this error, then you can use the tutorial below to reset your Microsoft account password online at Microsoft on any computer. It may take a bit before the password is updated after you confirm it from the email sent to you from Microsoft.
