  • I can't connect to Windows 8 by using the password.

    Original title: could not connect to Windows 8

    I tried to connect to my computer, but then he says 'this password is incorrect. Be sure that you are using the password for your Microsoft account". I checked carefully, and I don't know that I typed my password. This started to happen when my computer ran out of battery then I plugged in and could not connect later. I even reset my password but still no luck. This computer is new, so I don't know why it does this.

    I had the same problem today. After a quick visit to my dealer where I bought my new acer E1-572, he explained that we have for the most part a password with letters and numbers.  On my acer, the NumLock is locked automatically.  This means that numbers are not added in your password.  Try to release the NumLock or by using the numbers in the second row on your laptop. Success!

  • XP is connected to the wireless network but can't get online...

    I have a wireless network that works very well with my computer laptop and desktop so its punt in Mac OS, but when I boot XP, it cannot get online. He sees the network and says I'm connected but IE and Firefox keep the display of error messages telling me that they can't connect. If I click on the icon of repair under wireless network connection settings, it would loop forever in the IP address area you are looking for. I figured out how to manually enter the IP address and the error is now in the clearing the DNS cache.

    I also tried implementing the wizzards and messed with the different service settings, but still no luck.

    Does anyone have an idea what I am doing wrong or what needs to be done to get this connected to the internet?

    Why windows is so difficult? my Mac is hooked up very well with little effort.

    I'm so frustrated. Help, please

    If you are connected your computer must be able to connect to the menus wireless router and have an IP address valid (169 . xx.xx.xx isn't a valid IP address).



    Maybe this can help,

    Also make sure that the security software on your system does not block the connection.

  • . All of my Windows mail folders were empty and all applications on the toolbar are dark, when I turned on the computer. How can I get back them?

    My husband and I share the same email address and use the same computer.  All e-mails and applications on the toolbar 'his side' of the computer are very good, but me disappeared including send/receive.   I got emails that I downloaded, but do not read.  There an idea of how to recover emails and applications?

    It is not at all what you mean by the 'toolbar '.   You use Windows Mail in Vista?  If so, you can search the *.eml try to locate emails (see for background), but you will need to provide more information, because it is not clear if you do not see the files or toolbars in WinMail (try to view |) Page layout) or if your all start menu disappeared.  You can also try a system restore, but it seems that you should also check for viruses and malware, according to your description.

    Method 2:

    I suggest you to check the question in the clean boot state.

  • Windows Mail keeps asking for my username and password, and even if they are correct he still doesn't and comes repeatedly asks me for the info

    That makes me MAD! Windows Mail - checking the user name and password &!

    It makes me crazy.

    For the last few days my Windows Mail keeps asking for my username and password and even if they are correct it still doesn't and comes repeatedly asks me for the info again and again. I deleted the account mail twice now and re added it but it still does not work. I can send emails but not receive. I have McAfee but I aiinstalle only this yesterday so that isn't the problem. the error message is:-
    Account: '', server: '', Protocol: POP3, server response: '-ERR Authentication failed.', Port: 110, secure (SSL): no, Server error: 0x800CCC90, error number: 0x800CCC92

    Please help I need to retrieve my emails! Thanks, Sarah

    McAfee is a huge problem with Windows Mail.  See if you want to use, wait until you get the job of Winmail.

    Check if you can connect webmail and that works very well and it's not a problem on the end of the server messaging or because of misspelled powers.  Then delete your account in WinMail, compact and repair the database (see and make sure that you have disabled the e-mail analysis then add your account to mail back again and see if it works.
