Hey guys

Recently changed my motherboard and have not been able to verify my account in pc settings in windows 8.1.

I have activated my operating system successfully so I know that is not the problem.

When I try to verify my account, it says I have typed my password incorrectly.
I change my password and still says it is typed incorrectly.
I know the changes are being saved as I can login on a web browser into my email. (Microsoft and outlook is linked).

Also Google chrome does not log in automatically anymore and will not remember passwords for me.
When I try to log into my email, I input the password and it says that I have typed my password too many times. It then asks me to put my password in and type the randomly generated words below and logs in then. this happens every single time and is an annoyance more than anything.

I have restored my pc to a previous point but this has not sorted my problem out

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks

Is your system build or manufacture?

built it myself but not had this problem before.

I still have not been able to verify my account with Microsoft in my pc settings but have been using mozilla as my browser which seems to be sorting out the auto sign in problems.

I suppose i will just leave as it is and use mozilla from now on
