First, make sure you're typing in the password exactly how you think it should be. The on-screen keyboard can be tricky, especially if you're using the awful Xbox 360 D-Pad to navigate it.

If you're sure you're typing it right and it's not being accepted, it's possible that you're remembering the wrong password. Microsoft has a nice walk-through of how to recover or reset your password when you can't remember it which can be found here.

If for whatever reason that doesn't work, just cycle through every password you can remember that you've ever used. Maybe you'll luck out and get it.

Good luck!

Download your Xbox Live profile
You might want to download your Xbox Live gamer profile in the following situations:
  • You want to use your Xbox Live gamertag on another console.
  • You have a Zune, Games for Windows, or Windows 8 Microsoft account (download your existing account instead of creating a new account).
  • You accidentally deleted your Xbox Live gamertag from your console.
You can download your Xbox Live gamertag to any console. Here's how:
  1. Press the Xbox Guide button on your controller (large X button in the center of your controller).
  2. Select Download Profile.
  3. Note Not seeing Download Profile? Press X to sign out of your profile.
  4. Enter the Microsoft account associated with your Xbox Live gamertag. If you don't know your Microsoft account or password, see Find your Microsoft account or password.Note "Microsoft account" is the new name for what used to be called "Windows Live ID." It's the email address and password you use to sign in to Microsoft services (including Xbox Live). Find out more.
  5. Now, enter your Microsoft account password.Note If your account is an Xbox Live child account, the parent's Microsoft account information is required to download the profile.
  6. Select the storage device for your profile (for example, Hard Drive).
  7. Your profile will begin downloading. Once your profile is downloaded, you can choose whether or not you want to require your Microsoft account password to sign into your profile.

                    I have my password but i cant remember my email on the 360


                    There is no method to recover the email address you used for your Xbox Live Gamertag. However, if the account is still on the console you can go to Settings>Account Management>Windows Live ID and it will show you your email.

                    If that doesn't work then just keep trying random old email addresses. You could also try contact Microsoft support, but I've never heard of somebody recovering their email this way.
