If your password doesn't work
There are several reasons why your password might not work:

  • The password you entered isn't capitalized correctly. AIM passwords are case-sensitive, so if your password is "Password," entering "password" (note the lowercase "p") won't work.
  • (For AOL subscribers only) You've recently changed your AOL password and are trying to use your new password with the AIM service. Even if your AOL screen name is also your AIM screen name, changing the password for one doesn't affect the other.
You can have your password sent to your e-mail address by submitting your screen name at the following Web page: http://www.aol.com/aim/password.adp.

Not able to connect I get error message invalid user or password or to many attempts keeps asking to change passwords Please help I have to log in every time I go into Facebook


If you tell Facebook that you want to change your login info (Can't remember your password) they will send you an email and then either they will give you a new password so that you can get into Facebook and then change your password. Hope this helps

My sanyo zio with cricket wont unlock i did the pattern wrong to many times and my gmail account says invalid password or username but i can log in gmail for my laptop no problem.


Everyone says to do a hard reset, DONT. All you need to do is put your Google email in the user name box then put the word "null" in the password box. Once that is done it will ask you to to make a new pattern and then everything is back up and running. I went right in turned off the pattern lock, I never want to see it again. Also it might take a few trys to put the user name and password in. The second try worked for me.

If you have type in your your credentials correctly and still get "invalid user name or password" probably your account had been hijacked by someone or you have not been use your account for a long time and sometime dormant account is deleted.

Don't fret just create a new account with msn.

Trish825, I had an account here at fixya since last year! Suddenly about 3 weeks ago my email address, nickname, and password became invalid when I would attempt a login. Fixya didn't or couldn't restore my old nickname with a new password. Guess it's not in their "to-do" list. Anyway just get a new nickname and new password like I did. Bye for now. 12fixlouie aka louie12fix

CANT ACCESS MY AIM ACCOUNT IT SAYING INVALID PASSWORD I KNOW IT IS THE RIGHT PASSWORD MY AIM IS IAMKAONASIS


If you are sure that the password is correct, then type your password in a text editor, then copy it and paste in your password box of AIM. There could be some problem with the keys which will be clear to you, once you type in your text editor.

I'm having trouble registering... it says invalid


It only seems to have one requirement - User Name must contain Minimum of 4 letters

Then it checks against its database to see if the user's requested name is already being used - if it is then you must choose another user name -- it's highly possible certain characters, punctuation, or other taboo things like numbers or spaces are forbidden.

I did not see how to make the password -- I used alpha/numerical in mine and was successful.
