I tried to factory reset my pc because I was having problems with it but when I did I got this screen witch says. Other user and I tried entering any password I could think of but nothing seemed to work and I’ve spent the better part of 6 hours trying to solve the problem but nothing seems to work

Are you trying to do the factory reset from a pre installed recovery program that came with your pc. If so try the following , make a set of factory reset discs from within the software. Next restart your pc and as it is booting up keep pressing the cd/dvd drawer until it opens , as quickly as possible put the first of the discs into the drawer and close it. Eventually the pc should detect the disc and start running the recovery program..... this is what I did when I had a Packard bell pc.

What problems?

make and model? laptop desktop?

what operating system win 10?

If win 10 then you are probably better off downloading a win 10 iso and make the media creation tool. Boot from the created media and do a clean install of win 10
