    Unable to log into Windows 8 Release Preview

    Recently I installed Windows 8 Release Preview on my PC. I can not log in in windows 8, I have the main screen where ask me for the password, when I write the password, show me a message that it says wrong password. The password is correct!!! I use this password in my email account, I can log in on this place. What can I do? I already changed the password, and tried to log in but I could not. I unplug the network cable but it was the same error. What can I do? Please help me out !!!

    Check the following statements before you enter password, 1:Check whether your password is correct. 2:Check whether your num lock in turned on or not! 3:Check whether your caps lock is on or not. E-mail addresses, password will be case sensitive! So, check caps lock! After reviewing all these statements your problem will be solved!

    Just an idea, try entering your password except for the last character.
    I am forced to believe that the code behind is skipping the last character. So if your password is P123456789, try P12345678

    Again, i have a password greater than 16 characters and I was able to login with the first 15.

    Hi,

    You have got a global disorder as the issue is with Windows 8 and a bug in itwhich is creating havoc.

    Windows 8 designed to accept as long as 16 characters for a password.

    If you are having password longer than that type only 16 out of them and observe.

    If you have shorter character passwords try to remember every Alphabet, Nemeral,and Special characters that you may have selected as password.

    Try to log in as Administrator, if you are allowed change the password for other accounts, or remove all togather.

    Try also in a SAFE MODE boot if anything happens.

    Thanks.
