Please Help! My Lenovo Ideapad s210 Touch Came with Windows 8. Whenever it went to sleep I had to logn with a password and at some point I was asked to make a Windows online account with a more complicated password & that became the password I had to use to Login to my computer a lot!. I found out I could select Bypass the Login Screen & that worked great. Soon the computer started bugging me about upgrading to Windows 8.1 & I thought it might be less buggy & faster so I upgraded to Windows 8.1. Once installed it seemed to work ok then at some point it installed a lot of updates & needed to restart the computer in 16 minutes so I restarted it. It came back on at the login screen. I put in my password & it said it was incorrect. I tried a few more times, even the old password, nogo. I went online on my tablet & found others have had that problem with Windows 8.1 & 8. I tried changing my Microsoft password & it didn't work. I turned it off for a few days & tried it and when I press power the button lights up but the screen stays dark. happened when I pressed power except the button lights up. What can I do? Is there an external reset? I am in desperate need of help asap. I am job hunting without a computer. Thank you, Julie D.
