Hello and thank you for your question.
A flashdrive is a USB storage device. Can I have the exact error you are getting?
This action requires a USB Flashdrive Please connect a USB Flashdrive and try again
How are you trying to sign in? Do you see your username? What happens when you click on it?
I use msn as my homepage... My account is Blessings1 when it comes up I try to put my password XXXXX it says it's wrong and won't let me reset it message then comes up
Oh I see. You won't be able to do this unless you have previously set up a USB drive to store your password.
You will need to visit this site: https://account.live.com/password/reset to reset your current msn password XXXXX sign into the computer.
I must have, as This problem started happening 2 weeks ago
You will have to use the link I provided to reset the password. Do you remember setting up a USB drive to store your password? Even if you did not this option will still be here so you I suggest using the link.
can this be done using another computer?
It will ask your account info (the one you use to sign in to the computer) follow the prompts and you can reset your password.
ok, I'll give it a try ty
Now it is saying this cannot be done now..will respond within 24 hrs. but I only have this computer until this aft. My main account is XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX
I see, you will have to check again later, sometimes it takes MSN a while to reset passwords. This is the only way for you to change it at this point.
