Way 3. Clear TPM Data

The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a vital security requirement for Windows 11. If the TPM data is modified, it can cause issues with your PIN, leading to an error message on the sign-in screen. Fortunately, clearing the TPM data can resolve this problem.

Follow the steps:

Step 2. In the Security processor troubleshooting window, select the appropriate reason for clearing the TPM from the dropdown menu.


Step 3. Click the "Clear TPM" button. A prompt will appear; carefully read the message and choose the appropriate action based on your needs.


Way 4. Delete the NGC Folder

The NGC folder stores PIN-related data. Deleting it can force Windows to recreate the folder and potentially resolve the error. This method requires accessing hidden system files. Proceed with caution if you're not comfortable with these tasks.

Step 1. Launch File Explorer and go to the "View" tab.

Step 2. Check the box behind the "Hidden items" option to show hidden files and folders.


Step 3. Navigate to the location below: C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Local\Microsoft\NGC

Step 4. Right-click on the "NGC" folder and select "Delete."


Step 5. Restart your computer and try setting up a new PIN.

Way 5. Uninstall Any Recent Windows Updates

Sometimes, recent updates can cause issues with the PIN login. Uninstalling these updates can help resolve the problem.

Follow the steps:

Step 1. Open the Control Panel. Search by entering its name in the Windows search bar and click on it.


Step 2. Click "Uninstall a program" under "Programs."


Step 3. Click "View installed updates" from the top left corner.


Step 4. Identify the most recent update, right-click on it, and select the "Uninstall" option to uninstall it.

If all else fails, you can try resetting your PC to its factory settings. This will erase all your data, so be sure to back up your files before attempting this method.

Follow the steps:

Step 1. On the login screen, hold the Shift key, then click the power icon and select Restart.
