Preferred Solution: why is microsoft asking for account password on my cell phone for live.com ? i don't it.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Phone - Lumia 730, new purchase. Account was setup using the current Microsoft Live Account. The account syncs up with the phone but not all contacts are showing up in the phone - People Hub

A:Why am I unable to sync contacts with Microsoft Live account on my Windows 8 phone?

Check in the People Hub if it only shows contacts with a phone number.
Under "People" you see "contacts" and under "contacts" you see "show"
So tap on "show"
Good luck

I am using Windows Live Mail Desktop as my email client on a computer running Win XP sp3. I understand Microsoft are encouraging folk to switch from OE to WLM

My cell phone is a Nokia 6110 Navigator.

Nokia provide a programme called PC Suite to sync phone and PC.

It enables sync with Outlook, Outlook Express and Lotus messenger but there seems to be no way to sync with WLM

I have sent Nokia support a number of emails asking for advice but they do not even reply.

Can anyone suggest how I can sync my cell phone with my PC and include the WLM as it naturally has all my contacts, emails etc.?

I have also got ActiveSync installed on my computer but that also does not seem to support WLM.

Thanks

Ray

Hi - I hope this is the right place for this, I did not see a Windows 8 Phone forum...

I have an HTC PMM23300 phone on TMobile. I've been trying for weeks to get it to sign in to my Microsoft account. But whenever I try, it tells me "Can't Connect. We're having a problem signing in. Make sure you have good reception. If you do, the problem may be on the other end. Wait a little while and try again."

Well... I've certainly tried waiting. I've tried resetting the phone. I've tried resetting the phone to factory settings in case it is in a "bad state" as Microsoft suggests... but still no go. It does it on WiFi and on cell data.

Anyone have any suggestions to help? I like the phone, but I'm ready to get rid of it and go back to an iPhone... things shouldn't be this hard.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

I've recently changed my email provider so I changed my email and alias in my windows account.

My Xbox etc stopped working until I signed in with the new email address and now works perfectly.

My Nokia 920 has obviously also stopped connecting to the store/music and Xbox until I change to the new email address of the new windows account.

The problem is I just see how to change it, it doesn't seem to have an option to change sign in email address.

Am I being daft?

Thanks

You don't need to close your account. Just create another strong password. It doesn't even need to be something you could easily remember. Write it down or use LastPass or something so that you don't have to spend all day typing it in / remembering it.

Using a MS Live account just for the purpose of installing Store apps


The first time you go to install a store app you are prompted for your Live account credentials. Once entered, the only choice is SAVE or CANCEL. Once SAVE is chosen Windows remembers the password and the user is not prompted next time they go to install a store app.


I want the user to be prompted every time. It seems earlier version of WIN8 allowed this. Can it still be done? I looked for a registry hack to prevent the Live password from being memorized but could find none.

Hello Aj,

No need to pay anything. You can use the method in the tutorial below to reset the password of your Microsoft account as needed online at Microsoft.
Microsoft Account Password - Change or Reset in Windows 8
When you install the same Windows 8 that came preinstalled on the OEM computer, the installation will automatically detect and enter the product key that's embedded in the BIOS/UEFI firmware chip on the motherboard. Once installation is finished, it should be able to activate with that key.

Hope this helps,

Have tried multiple installations of iso 64bit everything goes fine till the option to switch log on to microsoft live account... that does not work and the option of doing this through control panel also does not work. Also microsoft updates does not work and activation does not work. However the browser is fine and allows me to browse normally except for example when i log onto skydrive to view pictures it gives me a certificate error and will not display pictures. I think for what ever reason this is some kind of proxy error but since i am using a standard internet connection i am not sure why? Any Ideas

Thanks to anybody that replies..........

When Windows 8.1 is logged in to my Microsoft account, I'll have to use the same password as when I log in to my Outlook account. Unfortunately for me, I use a password manager to help me remind my passwords. The disadvantage of this is that my Microsoft Password is a random string of 16 characters. That is not something you want to type every time you log on to your pc. Is there any way to use a local password when logged in to your Microsoft account?

New Windows 10 Home desktop. I put in Carol when it asked who would use the computer.
After a restart, it showed Carol and Welcome, then I could just click on it and use it. The only user was Carol and no password was needed. That was OK.

I set a system restore point, then I set up Cortana and it asked for my Microsoft Account and Password. I already had a Microsoft account, so I entered my name - Allen Bredt - and password.
Now there are 2 users, Carol and me. After a restart, it wants my name and password.
I can use System Restore to go back, but then what?

I want it to just give me the desktop with no sign on required.
Can you help me.

A:Microsoft Account Required Sign in and Password

Hello Allen,

It sounds like you switched your local account "Carol" to a Microsoft Account "Allen" while setting up Cortana.

If you like, you can keep using your Microsoft account and set Windows to automatically sign in to it at startup.

I've always used local accounts with Windows. But recent events have had the need for me to use skydrive which required me to login. In fairness, I don't mind logging in and backing up settings etc, but instead of my profile saying my username, it will say my full name (I fixed this issue). But it also wants my microsoft password every single time. I've changed it to pin code for quickness, but removing it altogether would be good.
Any clues?

FYI, the netplwiz trick only works for local accounts, not microsoft ones.

I am not sure how Microsoft got past the CMOS password. There should be a jumper allowing you to clear CMOS which would remove any password. With the CMOS battery removed hold down the power button for 30 seconds to remove any residual power.

TOTALLY.
I have to enter my damned password several times a day... really annoying.
Have you tried the netplwiz app to bypass needing a signature?
It does not work for me, but may for you...
Go to start.
type netplwiz and click on apps, see one listed, run that, UN check the box which says a password is needed.
That SHOULD do the trick but does not.

I think part of my problem is having 8 win8 systems at home, all with the same username... but you would think Wiindows 8 could allow a user like me to network with my own computers without having to deal with permissions etc... really irritating.

A:Cell phone

Without any clue as to model numbers, its a hard call to offer constructive advice, but the Palm unit will allow the export (from the PC based copy on Palm Desktop) of the addresses and numbers to a .csv file.

If your new phone has connectivity to the PC, then it may be able to import them, but that would depend widely on the model and your own ability to connect it to a PC.

Alternatively the Palm will usually allow IR (InfaRed) beaming of the addresses, and if your new phone will receive IR data then that may be possible.

Hello,

I purchased Motorola Phone Tools and a USB cable to transfer some of my mp3's to my cell phone. When I uploaded them successfully, the quality was greatly reduced and I can't figure out a way to modify them - it sounds very scratchy when I set it as a ringtone. I don't see any option that the program gives me to modify bitrate, etc (my friend uses BitPim which is not compatable with my phone, but his ringers are much higher quality). If anyone can help me increase the quality, I'd appreciate it!

some extra info in the "preview" section when I'm about to send it to my phone:

44,100 Hz
Quality: 16 bit stereo

If however you want to pose with a designer model then expect to pay upto £100 for one.

I assume you mean Sanyo, not Sony. This is the data cable, but there's no information on software available.

Hello,

According to my iTunes I am able to download music and then transfer it to my iPod. My question is am I able to create my own file to then transfer the music to my cell phone as a ringer? Do I have to somehow change the file extension, and what are the directions to transfer it to the phone.

Again, I understand if this is not legal, and I know you should able to tell me the legality. I was just wondering. As always you guys know everything there is to know, so any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for you time and help,
Ben

Yes, after you pay for music it is yours to do what you want with it (except copy and sell it/copy it and give it to another person)

I suggest 3gupload.com. IT DOES cost some money, but you can make your own wallpapers, ringtones and the such and upload them into your phone.

As for what type of file to convert it to, I would need your phone. Some higher model phones can play MP3. Others play a .mmf or .smaf format. Every phone is different

Just purchased a new Motorola Razr V3xx cell phone. I would like to transfer pictures from my laptop to the phone via USB cable. I have the cable but now I'm informed by Motorola that I have to purchase the software (data connection tool package) Is there any way to pick up this software free or is there another way to download my pictures to the phone besides using the memory card which I also can't use on my laptop.
