So you have an unspecified model of RPi board, running an unspecified Operating System.
And when you connect to the HDMI port, which I was certain provided Video and Audio output, you get prompted for authentication?
More details needed I think - that is not a scenario this volunteer recognises or can help with...
Code: Select all

Install a fresh version of Raspbian Buster Lite on a new or spare microSD card.
Check that you can log in at the command line on a direct console.
Use the raspi-config utility to enable SSH.
Check that you can log in via SSH.
(Just doing this much as a sanity test will show whether your Windows workstation is somehow a cause of your problem.)
With a usb card writer dongle you now have a 'Rescue Workstation'. You could explore the suspect microSD card to try to work out what has broken.
My hunch would be to look at the files the pi user invokes at login, things like .bashrc
If you cannot track down the error, you are in a position to copy over the files related to your email notification system to re-implement it on the fresh microSD card.

or might be hacked if it was on a network that is compromised or on the internetz...
you might want to check if you can write to the card on another machine, in case the card firmware has decided to protect itself into read-only
