    Win 8 boot problem.


    I installed Win 8 on a spare computer the had Win 7 on it.

    I could shut it down & restart it several times using my password from Win 7

    It worked beautiful, Then suddenly a new Starup Screen showed up with the vertical slide & the screen showed this;

    My full Name
    under it my correct Email Address
    & under that a place to type my password

    It will not accept my password!

    All I have now is an unusable computer!

    What do now?
