    Hello Sekhon, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Do you have a back arrow circle button at the top left corner to click on?

    If so, that should take you to the all users sign in screen where you can select the guest account to sign in to.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Well, since it was working fine a few days ago, you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated when it was working may fix it.
