Can't get a sign in window

2020-10-10, 23:20 PM

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T460 that will not let me sign in. It powers up, I get a picture but there is no place to enter a password. I've tried rebooting but no change. I pulled the battery and let it sit for several minutes and no change.  HELP!

Hi,

 

Does the lock screen go blurry when you try to sign in? I have no idea if this applies to your model but I had a newer laptop do something similar.  The sign-in screen would go "blurry" but not offer a text input box.

 

I disabled the security chip in BIOS, rebooted and got a sign in box, then back to BIOS and re-enabled and all was fine after that.

 

There are also other suggestions on the interwebs.
