You can’t sign in to your PC right now. Go to to fix the problem, or try the last password you used on this PC.

You may think this error is being displayed because you entered the wrong password. But this is just one of the many reasons that could trigger this message. With Windows 8, Windows introduced the new feature that allows its users to log into Windows using their Microsoft account and password. But with this a lot of errors also appeared. Dive into the article to learn about the possible causes of this problem and how to deal with them efficiently.

Solution 1: Make sure you have turned off Caps Lock

Solution 2: Use the on-screen keyboard

Sometimes the keyboard can fail on its own for a period of time. In this case, if you enter certain passwords, it is possible that they are entered incorrectly and the password is incorrect. In that case, you can use the on-screen keyboard with which you can enter your password. To access the on-screen keyboard, click Clock like the icon at the bottom of the screen and choose On-screen keyboard from the list of options.

Solution 3: restart your computer

If the previous two solutions do not work, then perhaps the problem is due to a common error widely reported by users of Windows 8, 8.1 and 10. A more efficient solution is to restart the system and wait 10-20 seconds after the restart before attempting log into. This simple solution is very useful for many users.
