I know there are already post about the pin thing, however in almost all of the "fixes" you have to be able to sign in to your account. I have changed my password to it and made sure I am spelling it correctly. I can log into the account from other devices as well. However when I type it into my desktop with this Pin issue, It says password is incorrect. Any recommendations that don't include resetting it? or is that my only option.

    Try using the virtual keyboard.

    There are many other ways to fix this problem:
