Can't log in to msn.com


When you log in to MSN a website powered by Microsoft you also log in to its Hotmail and Messenger programs.


Hotmail is MSN's email program, while Messenger is an instant messaging and networking program.


Because Messenger and Hotmail are connected to MSN, if you have problems logging into one program, you'll likely have issues logging in to all of them.


Register for Account


The first step to logging in to any MSN-powered sites is to have a Windows Live ID.

This includes an email address, which acts as your username, as well as a password.


The email address must end in either "@hotmail.com," "@live.com" or "@msn.com."

Even though these emails use different domain names, all can be accessed by logging in to the Hotmail homepage.


If you try to log in to MSN or any of its partner sites like Hotmail or Messenger using anything but a Windows Live ID, you won't be allowed to access or create a profile and will be prompted to create a Windows Live account.


Incorrect Password


The most likely reason you aren't able to sign in to your MSN accounts is user error.

Entering an incorrect email address or password will return an error message, informing you that either the email address you provided isn't registered with MSN, or that you entered an incorrect password.


MSN and, hence, Hotmail and Messenger passwords are case sensitive, so check your keyboard's settings before retyping your password a second time.


If you don't remember your password but know your Windows Live ID, you can opt to reset your password by answering some security questions pertaining to your account.


Browser Issues


A slow browser can impact your ability to log in to your MSN accounts.

Try deleting your browser's cookies and clearing its cache before attempting to sign in again. This process varies from browser to browser.


For example, in Internet Explorer, click on the gear icon, "Internet Options" and click "Delete" under Browsing History.

Check the "Cookies" box and click "Delete."


Internet Issues


A slow Internet connection can also hinder your login attempts.

Check your Internet connection to make sure you're connected to the Internet.


Also, check that you're working online instead of offline, which can prevent you from logging in.


Click on the "File" tab at the top of your browser, and make sure there's not a check mark next to the words "Work Offline."


If there is, click on the words to uncheck that option and sign in again.

There might be some interference from another browser

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list will be internet options or
click start control panel internet options you will see a home page box To Create Page Tabs type

each adress on its own line (type in MSN.com) or you preferred home page and browser
below that will be change search defaults click on settings you will see all search providers you have if dont need any of them you can disable or remove them.


Hope this helps.

Desktop wont connect to internet but laptop will


Is your cable modem also a wireless router?

From my search on it, it is not a wireless router.

This means you need to attach a hub or a wireless router to your cable modem so that more than one computer can connect to the internet simultaneously.

Go out and buy a wireless router. Connect the wireless router to your cable modem.

Connect your desktop to the wireless router with an ethernet cable.

Then you should have internet on your desktop.

Let me know if this helps. Give me a good rating and vote for me please.

I can not seem to connect to msn.com. I can


Couple of things to check. Make sure you software firewall has not been accidentally set to block this site. If you are using an Antivirus program you will find advanced firewall settings in the configuration section.

Secondly, click Tools on the top Menu bar in Internet Explorer, and then choose Internet Options. Re-enter MSN as your homepage and click OK, in the event the URL has been changed from your original page.

Hope this helps.

Wont let me log on


What internet browser are you using and the version? For example Internet Explorer 6 or Mozilla Firefox 3. Internet Explorer is the "e" on your desktop.

Have you ever been able to successfully surf the internet on this computer?

If so, try clearing out your temporarly internet files and cookies. It depends on what browser you have on the computer for steps.

Internet Explorer: you would right click on the "e" on the desktop and left click on properties from the drop down menu. Then depending on what version you have....you would clear history, delete cookies and delete files...for example.

The other thing you might need to do is remove MSN Messenger from your startup folder so it doesn't even open anymore causing grief.

Laptop Cannot Find Home Wireless Network


Try logging into the router with your desktop hard-wired and find the 25-digit passcode and use that to log on to the wireless network with the laptop. If not, then check if connection is good by hard-wiring the router to the laptop. Let me know what happens or if you have solved the problem.

MSN Internet explorer


Are you using MSN explorer with a "paid" account.

When did you start having this problem.

I'm assuming you can connect to the internet all other ways by using either internet explorer or firefox mozilla.

There are a lot of small issues that may be going on. More details are needed so please let me know everything you can, including your Operating System, PC or Notebook..etc
