error code 810000306,
error code 81000314
it works... ty man
Didn't work for me.Tried two email addresses, one works, one doesn't. On two different computers with MSN 7 and MSN 8 the exact same behavior. Deleting the cache didn't work either.The email address that doesn't work was locked. Unlocked it, logging in to the passport site works OK now but messenger won't accept anymore. A whole day has passed so you would expect the unlocking of the account would be noticed by now.
Erwin,Are you using hotmail account?Let me know.
Didn't work for me either.. I've got an hotmail account but it just doesn't stup with giving 81000314 errors. I just can not sign in anymore :( It just keeps going on for days and days.. I'd tried everything already! NOTHING Works! And everybody can sign in except me. My sister can sign in at the same pc. I tried MSN Messenger 7.5, but still getting the same eror's. I really tried all the things on a lot of forums but nothing works.. Please help me
how u open with notepad??
thanks so much ... working perfectly now.btw ... if u try and open it in notepad u may not see the file.For this go to RUN in the start menu and copy the destination path:C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hostsDo the necessary editing and it should work fine
That's not work. I have signed in MSN a great number of times but failed every time displaying an almost random error.FUCK MSN!!
Yay it worked for me... so s'all good... good luck with you other people...
it didnt work with me either.I'll try something else
Mine keeps swaping from 81000314 to 81000306 FUKIN LOADS even after i do what they say. probably just down time, BUT STILL FRIKIN ANNOYIN
SAME HERE switches to "306" to "314"
Same here , I think msn servers are down ...
i just want to comment on this 'urban legend'.doing this doens't change ANYTHING.When the computer tries to connect to a server,it looks in that file first.if he doesn't find the ip,he will contact your local dns server (or isp dns server). If that one doesn't know the ip,it will ask several other dns servers,untill finally reaching the root servers.some of you might be lucky,shaving off a few seconds of connection time using this method,which seems to be enough in order not to time out while signing in.But what you are basicly doing is staticly assigning an ip to the servername.IF the server ever changes,or is down,you will not be able to use any other of the server pool, meaning you are bound to have problems sooner or later when using this method.it's just a time out, chill out,talk to some real people,and try again in an hourxor
Thank you very much. This worked for me.
Works fine for me.. thanks.
yeahh,considering how many people put comments today.ill guess its down.but fuck.. grr
UPDATE= ok,i still don't believe in this theory,but it seems to work for some people, for some reasons.FOR THOSE FOR WHICH IT DOESN'T WORK try the following servers =184.108.40.206220.127.116.1118.104.22.16822.214.171.124I tried to ping them and all,but no response from here (west europe).maybe others will be more successful.good luckxor
WHY ISN'T THIS WORKING.
mine wont work either, it was like this about 2 hours ago then i just made my account the "sign in automatically" and tried a million times then randomly it signed me in. i left for a bit and came back to it not working again. popup reads "Service temporarily unavailalbe try later" and code is 81000314 , and when i click help on the popup the site wont work at all, it cannot be displayed. i tryed the notepad thing but no changes applied. good luck people, i know how addicting msn is and how inconvient it is not being connected!
My msn just got the message, before it was working fine, but it logs me out every now and then, but my internet connection is stable. So I got irritated and reinstalled the whole msn. And, now what I got is Error 81000314, and the notepad method is not working too. I'm not's using hotmail account.
Not just me then.
I tried that too. Won't work. It just gave me another error msg. Is WLM down?
Izzzz msn noot wrkin kuzz it keepz comin up da error n da fingy dnt wrrk loool ?
my guess is the server is down cos i have a stable connection, i havent changed or installed anything recently and everything else works.I bet itll work for everyone within the next few hours.
right this is just so annoying ! like sum ppl sed it keeps switchin frm 314 to 306..!!! been tryin to log in for like an houur !! live messenger dusnt wrk n neither dus the normal one. anyone got an other ideas apart frm the notepad fing cos that dusnt work at all!
This is so frustrating, it stopped working at the worst time possible.I really need to get some work sent to me...=(
Mine was switching from 314 to 306... this is what fixed it. It worked for me, maybe someone has freezed your account.
i have tried msn on pc and mac today and nothing nothing nothing, so if it isn't abvious server is down despite it says it is up and running
Go to Hell Microsoft!
I tried everyfin n it still aint workin....hu can help .?.!.?.!

It looks like the msn logon server is offline, however the status page suggests otherwise, just an idea but could certian isp's be having the problem, with the ports for instance.Are we all in the same country?
i'm trying to log on and it won't connect! why? it does this often!
im frm uk... cold country wish i were bck in africa!!!!!
uk? yeah, if you go click on "service status" at the bottom of the msn page it says everything should be working fine, obviously not since there is no many people on here right now, guess we'll just have to wait
arghh u cnt even go on emailz...cant find server for hotmail
the ! is beside the key ports - what does that mean? anyone help?
whoa. looks like im not the only person with this problem lmfao
I'm stuck using AIM because of this little downtime.
uk as well!
aaargh i need msn!!
hehe well at least i can still chat on my bebo account
im gna cry
I'm from Denmark.My service station to said that everything was fine - but, anyway I couldn't log in.But editing that hosts.msn did the job. I'm on msn now..
There's no point in even trying to fix it 'cause all our MSN buddies will be offline too o.o
err calm down yeh..msn aint the whole world

Anyone having probs accessing hotmail.com as well?WLM was working for me a while ago, now I get the key ports error.
Its up, so stop pissin ure pants plz
Ok for anyone thats saying this isnt a fix for it, this was posted a few months ago, when it was a different problem same error code. The MSN servers do seem to be having a difficulty seeing as most of europe and the usa are affected and also australia! For me the editing of the hosts file worked. Also persistant singing in attempts has started to let people back in now, so be patient and just keep singing in and you will be online too!
Worked for me finally
Come on Guys of Microsoft. Go to you fucking work and fixes this. sleeping time is over...The problem is: everyone go now on the same time to sign in on this fucking servers,, so its takes a lot of time...
MINES WORKIN NOW LOOL WOOOO
my msn has been working all day
good for u. get the hell outta this forum then.
It didnt work till i left it...went do some homework then i tried again and it just worked a minute ago...i added the code...then tried...it didnt work...then i removed the code ...n left it n came back...
Yes B) I'm in, and no one's on xD
First open a run window by clicking start, then run. Now, type the following command and press enter: regsvr32 softpub.dll Wintrust.dll Initpki.dll Rsaenh.dll Mssip32.dll Cryptdlg.dll If you use Windows XP you should open another run window after running the previous commands then type the following command: regsvr32 Dssenh.dll Gpkcsp.dll Slbcsp.dll Sccbase.dll THIS will FIX the problem! :)

Oh great, i got this error right at the wrong time. Is it back?
I think so.
Oh joy. Now its happened to me. For no reason at all. Tried everything suggested here. Service Status is fine so it cant be that. Anyone getting same issue???

the host file is read-only, that's why u can't save it.1. backup your file2. right click->properties->uncheck read-only attribute4. add the lines5. save the file6. right click->properties->check read-only attribute
