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.

When I type in my user name and password it reads "invalid user name or password"


When a message states that way it just means that you entered either the username or the password incorrectly.If you tried it several times and still didn't work.Try to click the link in the yahoo sign in page that says forget password.Then it will bring you to another screen that requires you to enter the security question and answer you chose when signing up your yahoo mail..If you can't remember those ,you need to sign up another one and don't forget to remember the information you entered when signing up your yahoo mail..Hope this helps.

Can't sign in to ps3 network when I attempt it says "incorrect username(e-mail address) or password I say i forgot password it gives me this: 80023017 error


PS3 Error 80023017 & 8002F0C1 & 8002f14e

Following on from the PS3 3.50 firmware update today, we have started to hear of owners having problems logging on to their accounts.

We have heard of PS3 owners who have updated their system complaining that they cannot sign in, and every time they enter their password are getting the wrong password message. We have had customers who have two PSN accounts and cannot log into either of them. They are met with wrong password message, and even when they use "Forgot your Password" all that comes up is an error.

Conrad Zimmerman of Destructtoid is reporting that PSN is going to have some scheduled maintenance today. This could be why users are complaining of problems logging on to their accounts.

The maintenance is expected to take place during 8 am until 5pm Pacific time. There will be a lot of users who are at work during this time so it will not be a problem for them, but for everyone else it will be somewhat of an annoyance.

I cannot log in! Been a member for years. Recently error message told me I was logged in at two places. I assumed it was on an old computer I had trashed that was logging in automaticaly. Kept...


Silly as the answer may be ddknox but the only way for you to delete it is to stop using it. The only way for an account to be deleted on Hotmail is that the user is supposed to be logged in. But your case here is different.

There is still one thing you can do other than the alternative email route when requesting for the new password.

Reset your password by entering your secret answer
  1. On any Windows Live ID site or service sign-in page, click Forgot your password?.
  2. Verify your Windows Live ID(The e-mail address and password that you use to sign in to WindowsLive programs and services such as Windows Live Hotmail and WindowsLive Messenger; Microsoft services such as Xbox LIVE, MSN, and OfficeLive; and anywhere else that you see the Windows Live ID logo.) , type the characters you see in the Picture box, and then click Continue.
  3. Click Use my location information and secret answer to verify my identity.
  4. In the Country/Region list, select your country or region, select your state, and then type your ZIP code ( The postal code system that is used in the United States. The ZIPcode consists of a series of digits that are added to a postal address.The ZIP code is used to identify each postal delivery area for thepurpose of sorting mail.) or postal code ( A series of letters and/or digits that are added to a postal addressand used by the postal service for the purpose of sorting mail.) if you’re prompted to do so. Ifyou've moved since signing up for your Windows Live ID, use thelocation information you last provided. If you've provided both a homeand work location, enter your home location.
  5. In the Question area in the Secret Answer box, type your answer to the question.
  6. Click Continue.
  7. Enter and confirm a new password, and then click Continue.
  8. If prompted, enter an alternate e-mail address (An alternate e-mail address is a secondary e-mail address registeredwith your Windows Live ID. If you forget your password, you can havethe password reset information sent to your alternate e-mail address.) and click Continue, or click Skip to bypass this step.
  9. On the You've changed your password page, click Sign in to Windows Live.

Sign in & log in problems


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. I think the email address you putting might be not correct or password might be incorrect. Please send an email to the Yahoo.com team to send you the email id and password. If you don't get any help from them then I suggest you to open a new e-mail id and set new password and the issue will be resolved.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
