Caps lock is that key on the left side of your keyboard. When pressed, it makes all letters that are typed in into uppercase letters. For example; without caps lock pressed: "pressure". With caps lock pressed: "PRESSURE". If it mentions something about passwords being "case sensitive," this means that an uppercase letter A (A) is recognized differently than a lowercase letter A (a). Since you can't see your password being typed, it is important to make sure caps lock is not pressed. If this becomes too complicated, open up MS Word, notepad, or wordpad and type your password there so you can see it, then copy and paste the password into the password space on facebook. Good luck with that.

    Did that solve the problem, or was the solution I prescribed not what you were having trouble with?

    If you reset your password before fixing that problem, it will still be affected by the caps lock. have them send your password to you and enter it exactly as you see it. When you fnally log in, change so that it is normal.

Im tryin to log into my facebook account it keepstelling me wrong password or caps lock is on and it is not

Maybe the system is right. Your password is wrong, check you are entering the correct password and if you are and still can't get in, try asking a Facebook moderator.

Facebook told me to pick a new password, which I did, but am still not allowed in.


If you are unable to log in to facebook, I would recommend you use the "forgot password" option on the log in page. This will provide you with the current log in password for facebook.

I'm on facebook but it won't take my password

First check that you are entering the correct user name and password by ensuring that you do not have CAPS LOCK or more specifically NUMS LOCK (trick: also enter the password in the username field to check entry). Also ensure that you do not have any sticky keys due to food particles or spilt drinks!

If you still think that you have entered the correct information, then your facebook name/password has been disabled due to you/someone else trying to enter the wrong details too many times: you will need to get your password reset by using the'Forgotten your password?' facility.

Hope it helps.

I keep getting the wrong password message

Then you are putting the wrong password in, or you may have set the password with caps lock on, try it again in caps or in lowercase.
If you still cant log on, try this

I have a oroblem logging on to my pc even though i am the administrator i cant log on , can i change that and make a new login

If you can log on to an administrator account you can remove the passwords on other accounts. If you dont know the passwords for any of the accounts you can try ophcrack, which uses rainbow tables to recover passwords from the sam files (where windows keeps passwords, encrypted of course) and let you know what they are. High success rate on XP, not so high on vista or 7. For extra added bonus, its a free open source program.

Hello! my account is I

If you're typing your password in and it's not letting you log in. Make sure caps lock is off. If it still won't work then it will ask you for your secret questions/tell phone number. The reason it does this is because when you first created your account you set secret info that only you know and if you ever forget your password or someone else gets it, you can recover your account with the secret info. If someone else has changed your password and you can't remember your recovery i.e 2 questions and cell phone number, unfortunately u will have to make a new email account. Try to remember what they were, I know u probably created it along time ago so chances are u've forgotten. U might want to make sure there's no viruses on ur computer too. Download AVG free and run a scan.
