    This could be due to accidentally configure the Windows system to allow only smart card login.
    The below mentioned steps are recommended by Microsoft and and check if you are able to disable the smart card login. 

    Method 1: Disable Force Smart Card Login

    If a problem prevents you from logging in to Windows with a smart card, start your computer in safe mode and disable this security feature. Smart Card Login option will not be available in Safe Mode. Whether you log in with a physical or virtual smart card, Windows stores your settings in the Windows NT Registry. If you’re able to log in to Windows, you can disable smart card login for future sessions by editing your local group policies. Disabling the Smart Card Plug and Play service removes the option to insert a smart card when logging in.

    1. Login to Windows in Safe mode, please follow this safe mode article.

    2. Press Windows + R key to launch Run command.

    3. Type regedit in the Run dialog box and click OK.

    4. Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\PoliciesSystem

    5. In the right pane of this location, you’ll find a DWORD named scforceoption.

    6. In the Value Data field, change the current value of “1” to “0” and click “OK.”

    7. Close Registry Editor and restart your computer in normal mode. The login screen prompts you to enter your username and password rather than insert a smart card.

    Method 2: Disable Smart Card Plug and Play Service.

    1. Press Windows + R key to launch Run command.

    2. Type gpedit.msc in the Run dialog box and click OK.

    3. Navigate to “Computer Configuration>Policies>Windows Settings>Local Policies>Security Options>Interactive logon: Require smart cards”

    4. Right-click “Interactive logon: Require smart cards” and select “Edit.” In the Properties dialog, select “Disabled” to turn off this service

    5. Now navigate to “Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>Windows Components>Smart Card>Turn On Smart Card Plug and Play Service”

    6. Right-click “Turn On Smart Card Plug and Play Service” and select “Edit.” In the Properties dialog, select “Disabled” to turn off this service and remove the smart card option from the login screen. Click “Apply” and “OK” to save your changes.
