Can't log in with Microsoft account, Internet won't work

  1. #11


    I set the computer to start in safe mode with networking because I was having a problem with my Internet connection to begin with. I did by doing what it says under "Getting to Safe Mode From Within Windows 8" on this page: How To Boot Into Safe Mode On Windows 8 (The Easy Way)

    So now it's starting safe mode, but I normally log in with a four-number pin and now it wants my Microsoft account password. I couldn't remember it so I reset it, but since it wasn't connected to the Internet because that was the original problem now I'm stuck.
