Resetting the Microsoft Connected Account Password

HP recommends using a Microsoft connected account (MSA) to log in to Windows. This type of account allows you to reset your password using a different device at any time. It's important to note that you don't need a Microsoft or Hotmail email address to set up a connected account; any email address will work.

To reset your password for an MSA account, follow these steps:

  1. Open an Internet browser and navigate to the Microsoft Reset your password Web page: https://account.live.com/password/reset .
  2. Select i forgot my password and click reset your password .
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reset your password.

Once the password is reset, you will be able to use your Microsoft account with the new password to sign in to Windows 10 and Windows Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet before attempting to sign in.

If you are using a local user account, HP cannot recover or reset your password if it is lost or forgotten. To avoid such situations, HP strongly recommends creating a password reset disk. This disk will enable you to reset your password in case it is forgotten. If you do not have a password reset disk and can't remember your password, you will be directed by HP support to perform a full recovery to the original factory conditions, resulting in the loss of any data that was not backed up to an external location.
