HP pavilion 15 cd040wm. I have a corrupt hard drive and was trying a startup repair but HP does not accept my valid email password they require.

You can't repair a corrupted drive; you have to replace it -- and any new drive would be blank.


Windows logins come in two forms: MSN and local. Only the first requires an email address and that is associated with Microsoft, not with HP.


So, I don't understand your issue -- you need to provide more details.
