Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I can not log in. I am told that either address or password is wrong. I changed password last night and as requested, got an e-mail to my address - pat1254@bresnan.net giving me my new password. Using that, I still can't log in and keep getting the same prompt.

    We were able to contact Bresnan and get phone help. The tech was able to solve the problem which turned out to be rather complex. I didn't complete the transaction with you as my husband contacted Bresnan. Thank you for your e-mail and if I have other problems that you might be able to help with, I'll contact you.

There could be a bug with the software. Make sure you don't have a virus. If you don't, just wait a few days and try again.

I think my email has been hack it want let me sign in I know I'm using the right pass word for years


try to log into the mail directly on the web page ..and not from outlook or so ...Another thing ...for example if you use yahoo ...they can have server issues ..and sometimes it is almost impossible to log in for a while ...wait 24 hours and try again ...This stands as a solution in case you typed the wrong password for a few times..and now it is locked as a prevention for 24 hours ..it is standard procedure when you type a wrong password...
Also check not to have the cap-lock button pressed on ...cause in this case even the correct spelled passord will not work cause will be written in majors..
You can take in consideration a hack or a bad joke made by someone whom knew your password..and changed it ...for this ..you will have to get to the domain page ..(yahoo.com mail ...or gmail.com ...or msn.com ..or hotmail..etc..) and in there try to log in ...If the caplock is not on ...and the password is the correct one..but it still refuses to let you log..on ..take a look for the forgot password..link ...and engage it for to start the recover or change password procedure..
Usually they will ask you a few questions that only you or the person that made the email account knows ...and after that will either provide you with a link where you can chage the password..or will direct you to the page where you can do that ..
For some domains..like yahoo..it is availale a secondary email attached on the account ..and if you have such a thing will be easier..cause soon as you report the forgoten password..they will send you a password changer link in the secondary email ..which you previously should have attached on the account ..
If the password is endeed changed..and you can not answer to the security questions..or you do not have a secondary email address linked to the account ..the password will be impossible to change ..and the account lost for ever..best to make another one ..and change the email address in any important location you used it ...(banck ...job related...and such ..)

If this is on another computer make sure your caps lock is off. (you seem to not have it on when you typed this). Sometimes changing passwords may take a few minutes to take effect. Also try typing your password into notepad to make sure that all the keys are working properly.

I've been trying to set up outlook on my compaq Presario CQ61 Windows 7 outlook 2007. I keep getting a dialog box requesting user name and password prompt. My user name and passwrod have been checked on...


There are two main areas that you need to look, first, something is wrong with the username and or password. If it keeps asking, that means you are not connecting. Be sure you have internet access.

The other area is the outgoing mail server, some ISPs require you to use theirs, but your tech call should have resolved this.

Log on to the web based mailbox to confirm what you think the access should be.

I cannot get into Yahoo to check my email and its been 2 days. sandracampbell26@yahoo.com I cannot log into yahoo from work.


go to their forgot password option when you try to log in and try to see if they give you the option of letting you change it by answering security questions. Otherwise you're looking at requesting your password. If you have not selected another e-mail address to use then you're probably not looking too good. I would make sure to set up security questions or a locked file with your password in it etc. Hope you get that problem squared away, I'd hate to lose my e-mail.
