Your PIN Is No Longer Available Due to a Change to the Security Settings on This Device

I can't set up a new PIN because my computer keeps asking for a security code to be sent to a number I no longer have. So, I updated my number for Microsoft accounts, but it says it will take 30 days before it takes effect. Now I can't even enter my laptop. Could someone help me with this? Thanks!
