suddenly can't login to Windows 10 using 4 digit PIN

Specs: Windows 10 32bit, 2 Gigs
I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Everything was working fine for 4 months and suddenly I cannot log on to my PC. I was using a 4 digit PIN and now that will not work. I don't remember ever using a password to log on but the log on screen wants a password. What do I do to fix this?

There is no simple solution as the 4 digit PIN is locked to the password used when you first setup Windows 10 account.

I solved this problem by trashing the computer actually. Three days of fighting the problem with no knowledge of what I was doing got to me. At 78 years of age, you would think that I would know better than to try to outsmart the things that run around inside computers.

Thanks for all the help and suggestions everyone,
