    First of all, you should change password at logon and check the issue if not solving then clear user cannot change password in computer management. follow the procedure to change password at logon:

    > First of all, press ctrl+alt+delete then choose option change a password.
    > Type the previous password, or leave the blank if first time attempting
    > Type New password and confirm it by pressing enter
    > Change the windows password

    Another method is, clear user cannot change password from your system. Follow the procedure:

    > Go to manage option by right clicking on Computer icon
    > Go to System tools and then navigate to Local Users and Groups then select Users
    > Do right click on username and click on properties
    > Now, uncheck the option user cannot change password and click on apply

    After completing the above process, try to change the password.
