I had a laptop where I had logged in using my Microsoft Account. However, it needed some repair, as it was not powering on. When I took it to an authorized service center (outside warrenty), the repair value was insane. So I decided to buy a new one, and sell the former (defective) one for a low price.

Is it possible to log out of Microsoft Account of that defective laptop remotely, as the laptop is not switching on ?

Yes. You will want to remove the device from your Microsoft account.

You can do that from a web browser by navigating to http://account.microsoft.com/devices

Have a great day.
