Errors in Windows 10 aren’t uncommon. Occasional system crashes, BSODs, system slowdowns and update problems are only a few among the many problems a Windows 10 user may have to deal with. In this long list of Windows 10 problems, one of the less common problem is the error code 0x800710d2.

You may come across error code 0x800710d2 if you’re using a PIN password to log into your Windows account. Normally, this error shows up when trying to boot the system or wake it up from Sleep mode. But it may also show up when trying to do something else, such as trying to create a provisioning package. The reason this error shows up is because of failure in transmission of resource data.

The natural solution here, or so it would seem, would be to remove the PIN code and use regular passwords instead. However, there are many benefits to using PIN codes. Not only are PIN codes easier to remember and log in with (because they are only 4 digits long), supplementing your Windows account password with a PIN code is also considered to be a great security measure to prevent unauthorized access to your account.

The solution? Restart the system, login with your password, and reset the PIN code. That’s the short version. Here’s a detailed step by step guide on how to do that:

  1. Press the Windows key and in the search bar, type Control Panel. Select and open Control Panel,
  2. Navigate to Control Panel > Power Options > Change plan settings,
  3. Look for Put the computer to sleep option and expand the drop-down menu on its right,
  4. Select Never and hit Save changes to confirm the change.

Normally, disabling the sleep mode will help resolve the issue altogether.  But it is wise to reset the PIN code too.

  1. Press the Windows key and in the search bar, type Settings. Select and open Settings,
  2. Navigate to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options,
  3. Look for the PIN tab and select Remove to remove the current PIN password,
  4. You will have to confirm this decision by entering your regular password in the confirmation window. Once you’re done, hit OK to finish the process.
  5. To add a new PIN code, click on the Add button in the PIN section,
  6. Enter a new PIN code (twice) and press OK to set it up,
  7. Once you’re through, your PIN password will have been reset.
