Viet -MS Office Tech :

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.

Viet -MS Office Tech :

I'm sorry about the issue. What's the model of your laptop? Does it have windows 8, or another windows version? Is this a new laptop? Do you mean you are able to sign in your Microsoft account at the website http://outlook.com/, but it won't let you sign in with the same microsoft account on the laptop?

Customer: It's a Hp windows 8 two years old. Had two admin users , sadly partner died . I can't get past the front screen to change .
Viet -MS Office Tech :

I'm sorry to hear that. Is it okay to reset the HP laptop and start over fresh?

Customer: Yes
Viet -MS Office Tech :

Please do the followings:

Viet -MS Office Tech :

1. Turn off the HP laptop

Viet -MS Office Tech :

2. Turn on the HP laptop, then right away, keep tapping the key F11 until a menu appears

Viet -MS Office Tech :

3. Select the Troubleshoot option. Then select the Recovery Manager option. Then select the option Minimized Image Recovery.

Viet -MS Office Tech :

4. Select the option to back up your data /files if you need (you need a USB external hard drive.) And continue.

Customer: Nothing a little bar appears with a 0 0r cross
Viet -MS Office Tech :

Sorry, let's try another way: turn off the laptop, then turn it back on, then do the following:



  1. At the login / password ***** press and keep holding the Shift key on the keyboard.

  2. Click on the Power icon, then click on Restart while still holding the Shift key. When a menu appears, then release the Shift key.

Customer: Power icon ??
Viet -MS Office Tech :

At the password ***** screen on your laptop, there should be a power icon at the lower right corner of the laptop's screen.

Viet -MS Office Tech :

Full Size Image

Viet -MS Office Tech :

(It's the power icon where you click on in order to shut down or restart the laptop.)

Viet -MS Office Tech :
