Hello,
This means that your password is incorrect. You can try to use the "Forgot Password" link to retrieve your password.

I need your help to access my facebook page.


Point your web browser at http://www.facebook.com

If another account comes up, log out of it by clicking the down-pointing triangle in the upper-right then clicking "Log Out."

If you then still can't log in to your account, click the "Forgot your password?" link located just below the password box on the login page.

If you're getting an error message, what does it say?

Password...I dont know my password


If it's been awhile since you used Skype to communicate with friends abroad or family back home, you might draw a big blank when it's time to type in your Skype username.

Skype requires a username and password from users to log in to the service.
You choose this username and password when you register for a Skype account.

By using Skype's recovery options and the email address used to register the account, you can retrieve your Skype username with ease.

Navigate to the Skype homepage online at skype.com.
Click "Sign In."

Click "Forgotten your Skype Name?" under the Skype Name entry box.

Type the email address you used to register the account in the box that appears.
Click "Get Skype Name."

Skype will email you a link to that address to recover your username.
Click on the link inside the email sent by Skype.

A page will open displaying your username.
Change your password in three easy steps.

This helps to keep your new password secure.
You will need to fill in your email address.

We'll email you a temporary code.
Use the code to change your password on our secure website.

Create new id


Start a NEW account from the Logon screen. If your Logon is auto at startup you'll need to click "log off" from the Skype App screen then click logon and it will present you with a NEW USER or returning user login boxes. Make a new one there.

Hi my husband has skype set up on our lap top. Can i set it up too? Do i have to download it again or is there a way i can do it through the desktop icon?


You want a second account, for yourself? If your Skype logs in automatically when you start it... See the menu in top of the window? Go to Skype and select Sign Out. Then you will see the Skype welcome screen and the option to create a new account. Does that answer your question?

Not log in


Hi,

Try recover Password.
Go to skype.com, select Sign in (upper right corner), then under the login boxes you have two links to recover both your username and password.
They will email you either, to the email address you specified when you registered

I can't log into skype. I keep getting Disk I/O error message.


You need to delete the folder that holds your account information for Skype.
I can be found in: C:\Documents and Settings\<winuser>\Application Data\Skype\<skypename> for XP or, C:\Users\<winuser>\AppData\Roaming\Skype\<skypename> for Vista

I just deleted any user account folder I saw, reopened, logged in...worked fine.

Hi,

Login to Skype. Now click Tools from the menu bar.
Click Options from the list and choose Video Settings.
Underneath Select Webcam, there is a bar with a little downward arrow. Click on the arrow and a list of webcam devices will appear. Choose a different one from the list. I had to choose USB Video Device to get mine to work.

Hope this helps

Chris (ziraffa)

ps It's the same method in Messenger under Audio and Video Setup :)
