Hello, and Welcome

 

What is the make and model of the computer?

 

If you can get to the command prompt. type the following.

net user administrator /active:yes

This will enable the hidden administrator account. Logging into that hopefully will give you access to your other account. Because you have fully encrypted the hard drive it may not work. Using the Administrator account you should be able to start Safe Mode with Networking.

 

If the above does not work you can enable the Administrator Account offline as shown here. DO NOT reset  your password on the encrypted account as that would render it and or the drive unusable. You should only enable the hidden Administrator Account. The software mentioned has been updated and you can download it here.

Hi Folks check this:

 

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19021466/disabling-ethernet-connection-with-command-line

 

"

Get NIC list and index number

wmic nic get name, index

Enable NIC with index number (eg: 7)

wmic path win32_networkadapter where index=7 call enable

"

 

I've run the command in Windows 8.1 with no errors, but I've not really tested it because I didn't plug in the Ethernet cable.
