v_2vinch post gives information on accessing Safe Mode.

You should find a hidden Administrator account.

Log in on this account.

Then remove password in your account in Users located in the Control Panel.

depening on what laptop you have, this will vary

on start up, press delete key, or f8
then once your in the BIOS, go to security (you change tabs using the arrow keys) there should be a option to reset your password. (it should look like clear Admin password or something like that)hit enter, and exit the BIOS SAVING YOUR CHANGES.
restart the PC and there should be no password.
hope this works

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
