Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Does it let you create a new microsoft account / email address? Yes, you can start over again.

Viet -MS Office Tech :

If that does not work, please try this: turn off the Compaq laptop, then turn it back on, then keep pressing & releasing the key F11 until a menu appears (or use the F10 key if it does not wrok), then choose the troubleshoot /recovery manager (or reset) option.

Customer:

Yes, I have set up my email account on the new machine and it is working fine.

Viet -MS Office Tech :

But you cannot use the new compaq laptop now?

Customer:

Sorry, I wrote this reply before I saw your message with the solution. I will try your solution now.

Viet -MS Office Tech :

No problem.
