Question about Computers & Internet
You don't mention whether it is your Facebook or GMail account that you can't get into. Here goes on both!
If you cannot get in it is likely that you are not entering the login details that Facebook is expecting, whether they have been satisfactory in the past or not.You could try this, go to the login page here:,
just under where you input your password you can click on "forgotten password". This takes you to a page where it says "find my account" where you can enter "Email, Phone, Username or Full Name". Try entering one of these (My email gave the best result for me) and follow through the instructions to reset your password so that you can access your account.
If you go to "www.google.com", then in the middle of the screen is the search box, but at the top right of the window are four to five options, one of which is "Gmail". If you click on this you will load a page where you can input your username and password. Under the sign in button, there is a "need help?" link. If you click on this the next page gives you three options, forgotten password, forgotten username and other problems. If you click in the circle next to "I don't know my password" and click continue. You will be asked for your email as registered with gmail, clicking continue will lead you to one of those annoying pages where you enter the characters displayed. On the next screen enter a gmail password you remember and then you will get a page to ask for a text message or automated phone call, whichever you prefer which will give you a code to enter into the next page and then you will be able to change your password.

Your account may be locked for security reasons
This happens because somebody tried to make a large amount of attempts to guess your password and enter your account. Many times, it's not actually someone trying to access the account, they just know that by sending a huge amount of requests, they can cause the user problems by having their account closed.
The servers understand that a human can make about 5 or 6 attempts a minute, this would be normal if you had forgotten your password or made a typo etc... and at this rate, it would take 18011 years to guess your password.
An automated program however, could make 1000s of requests a minute or even more! Its when the server experiences these numbers, for your own security, it locks your account.
First, visit http://login.yahoo.com/config/login Don't Worry! The first attempt will fail, say incorrect password or something. It's the second attempt that matters. What you will see this time, is that you have a word verification. This is a secure system by which only humans could be making the request, bots cannot see the text, they see encrypted numbers.
For some, this is it, the account will log in again! For others, it's not so. You have to wait up to 48hrs for the account to come back.

Most often it is a font or upper case, lower case, or symbol issue,
either with your log-in name or password, or both.
When you said up the accounts, you should have recieved a confirmation notice in your email of account set-up.
When you get to the long in screen, copy and paste your log-in information directly from your confirmation/account information that they sent you.
Should this not work, if u submit to them your log-in user name ,they will provide your password.
Again copy and paste the information in, so it reads exactly how they have it showing.
