I've never run into this issue before so I hope someone has a quick fix. My system login password no longer works. My mother was on my computer and made several failed attempts. Now it doesn't work at all. Any thoughts?
Passwords - Please do not ask for assistance with forgotten passwords and/or bypassing them. As there is no way to verify the actual situation and/or intentions, no assistance will be provided and any such threads will be closed.
I would suggest waiting for an hour or so. She may have typed it incorrectly and the system locked down for a period of time. It will likely reset and then you can try your password. If it still fails then there's nothing more we can do as already stated. I will leave this thread open just so that you can report back and let us know if you were able to log on.
