Hi,

 

-Do you have any other admin accounts on the PC?

 

To synchronize the new password, Microsoft account requires Internet connection to verify your account password.

 

The message of “offline” basically tells you that the network on your computer may be either disabled or disconnected. Since Windows 8 integrates Microsoft Account, it works best when it’s connected to the internet all the time. Check and make sure the Wi-Fi is on, or physically plugin a network wire to ensure that the machine you are dealing with is connected to network.

 

Let us know the status of the issue. If you need further assistance, please post back. We will be glad to help you.

 

Regards,
Anil

Hi,
 
Thank you for the reply.
 
You can log in to your Microsoft web account from any other computer with internet connection and then reset the password. Then only you will be able to log in to the user account.

I fixed this problem by using a wired connection.  My laptop didn't have a CAT5 connector, but it did come with a USB network dongle.  I was able to connect using a wired connection so my new password could be authenticated.

Through the Power Options

Instead of going all the way into the Settings screens, there is a faster way to access the boot options menu. Press Windows key + I (capital “i”) to access the sidebar menu and press the Power button. Press Shift as you select the Restart option. The Continue, Troubleshoot, and Turn off your PC options display on the blue boot options menu, just as they do using the primary method.

This method also allows you to access the boot options menu without logging into Windows. On the login screen, press the Power button in the lower, right corner of the screen and press Shift as you select Restart.
