how do I recover my sign in credentials

HP Recommended
elite 8000 cmt
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

this post is about how to recover my log in credentials. I am not sure how I got to the community since I have forgotten or used incorrect user name/password. I tried the recovery form but did not receive a verification code sent to either of my email address. either of which could be on file with P and the community forums. please tell me how to recover my current working user name password, my emails I used to register could be either [Personal Information Removed]. I could have used my passwords for those accounts here or something else. apparently my password list is incorrect. please help. thanks.

I am not at all sure I understand what you are asking - it sounds like you cannot log into your computer.

If the fingerprint sensor suddenly stops working on your computer

OR

If the computer is not issuing errors but still won’t let you log in,

Consider trying a Forced Reset (power reset).

 

Reminders

 

 A Forced Reset is NOT a “recovery” and does not remove your data – this reset merely forces the computer to load the Operating System from disk. 

 

Forced Reset does not harm a healthy system nor does it “fix” problems not related to a clean start.

NOTE:

The last option in the document (Reset) can be used if other solutions fail.

Read the section carefully - you will need to have previously made backups of your personal data to recover your personal files and folders.
