    so when I turn on my dell p20t
    It simply asks for current password.
    What can I do please? There are no password hint options or alternate profiles to sign in under. I don’t ever remember setting up this password. I use facial recognition and my Microsoft ID. Please help out. I catch a train tomorrow morning and I need to get my laptop running long before I leave.

    If it is asking for a login account password I assume you would use the password for your Microsoft ID.

    If it is asking for a UEFI or BIOS password you need to find out who set one.

    If you are really still running Windows 8 I strongly advise that you get the free upgrade to the still supported 8.1.
