I have a 7 year old Lenovo desktop all-in-one, still works good I thought (I have a fairly new desktop which I mainly use). Today I decided to crank up the old one to transfer some files from it to the new one....and I'm having problems booting it up.
Ordinarily, it just requires my "hello" pin on sign-up, but my pin is rejected....When I (after trying several tricks YouTubers offer up) get it to the sign-in page that shows your email address and requires the password, my PASSWORD is apparently invalid. Now, I may have changed that password since I used this old computer last. But I tried the old one first, then the new one. Still can't log in.

Any ideas? Thanks.....

I'm afraid the rules do not allow us to try and help:

Is this old computer connected to the internet ? If so it would sync the MS account password to the latest one you are using now.
