Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

Gamertag recovering bought the elite today, used live this morning and when I tried to recover my GT to it it comes up with "windows live id cannot associate with that gamertag" I have checked that the windows live id is correct by logging on to the internet with it, and the gamertag I have had for donkeys years, spoke to xbox and they dont have a clue???? The way I read it is that the info is all correct just not linked together. Also when I go on the xbox website and try to log on so that my gamer card etc shows it sends me straight to registration wizard??? But like I said I have had my GT for 3 years now.??? Pleased help as I am dying to play my new xbox..

    when i try to recover my gamertag that i erased yesterday in order to fix another problem it comes up with the error that my windows live id is not associated with my gamertag. i called up support like 10 times and they are telling me to reset my password for the id linked to the gamertag which is [email protected] but i tried doing that and it said the id wasnt existent. idk what i am going to do but i need my gamertag back. i tried creating an id with the same email which windows live let me do and then going on live and trying to recover my gamertag but it still says the id is not associated with my gamertag. i also tried contacting windows live ppl and they gave me answers that did not help at all. can someone please help??!

    I had my gamertag for two years now, and accidentally deleted it, and now when I try to recover it, it says: This windows live ID is not associated with your gamertag.



  • gray9876 Nov 21, 2008

    I have this EXACT problem, I accidentally deleted my Windows MSN account, and now I can't recover my gamertag or log onto the website like you and it's because they are now not associated. When i've phoned Xbox up they ahve told me I can add a new Windows live Id to my Gamertag but for some reason it wont let me and just gives me an error message!!

    Same problem... even have the original email [email protected] but getting bad name/pwd on xbox 360 for live id.

    go to passport.net to RESET pswd and it appears that there is no associated windows live id. so i created one for that email address. now xbox 360 says gamertag and live id not linked.... same problem. xbox.com only lets you use a new gamertag as stated here. Its now 2009... anyone found a fix yet???

HERE IS SOME BAD NEWS.... This is stupid considering it is possible that people change e-mail addresses.

You cannot unlink the primary gamertag to your primary Windows Live ID.

Please note that online primary profiles are attached to the primary Windows Live ID that was created the time you joined Xbox Live. You cannot unlink these. Even if it is no longer used, it will still appear in our database as a history of a certain gamer way back. No one can use it again.

Its simple, if you are dying to play it, create a new account, its short and easy. sorry... when you made your "donkeys year" old GT, did you say "Yes" to the message that popped up saying "I want to link this email address to my GT"? that usually helps... otherwise, idk what to tell you other than you are SOL.

                    Hello, When using windows live mail 2011 The wimdows live messenger login screen appears. How do i stop this happening? Windows 7 OS. Thankyou.


                    Is it possible to add another email account to your Windows Live Mail 2010? If so give it a try (Follow This). Actually your problem is little confusing since you have mentioned mainly two things, Windows Live ID account box and Windows Live messenger login screen.

                    If it's Live Id, then add a Windows Live ID account and see what happens, i.e. email address with Hotmail.com or Live.com or MSN.com (Click here to learn more or sign up).

                    Let me know the outcomes.

                    If you have forgotten your pass code, and if you have to remove it to sign into Xbox LIVE, follow these steps:

                    Note The following steps apply only to Xbox LIVE online profiles. When you delete an offline profile, you lose any Gamerscore that is associated with the profile. You also lose achievements and statistics that are associated with the profile.

                      1. In the My Xbox area, select System Settings.

                      4. Select Gamer Profiles.
                      5. Select the profile that you want to delete.
                      6. Select Delete. When you are prompted, select Delete Profile Only.
                    2. In the Xbox LIVE section of the Xbox Dashboard, select Recover Gamertag from Xbox Live.
                    3. Select Yes when you receive the following message: To join Xbox LIVE, you must exit your current session.
                    4. Enter the gamertag for which you want to remove the pass code, and then select Done.
                    5. Select Next.
                    6. In the E-mail Address section, type the Windows Live ID credentials (the e-mail address and password that you use to sign in to the Windows Live ID) that are associated with your gamertag, and then select Done.
                    7. Enter the password for the Windows Live ID account, and then select Done.
                    8. Select Sign In.
                    9. If you want to set the pass code again, follow the steps to set an Xbox LIVE pass code.
