it works... ty man

Erwin said...

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.

Admin said...

Erwin,

Are you using hotmail account?

Let me know.

Anonymous said...

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??

Anonymous said...

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\hosts

Do 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!!

Mine keeps swaping from 81000314 to 81000306 FUKIN LOADS even after i do what they say. probably just down time, BUT STILL FRIKIN ANNOYIN

Anonymous said...

SAME HERE switches to "306" to "314"

Anonymous said...

Same here , I think msn servers are down ...

Anonymous said...

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 hour

Thank you very much. This worked for me.

Ricky said...

Works fine for me.. thanks.

Anonymous said...

yeahh,
considering how many people put comments today.
ill guess its down.
but fuck.. grr

Anonymous said...

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 =

207.46.26.65
207.46.104.25
65.54.228.27
207.46.104.23

I tried to ping them and all,but no response from here (west europe).

maybe others will be more successful.

good luck

WHY ISN'T THIS WORKING.

Anonymous said...

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!

Anonymous said...

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.

Anonymous said...

Not just me then.

Anonymous said...

I tried that too. Won't work. It just gave me another error msg. Is WLM down?

Anonymous said...

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.

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?

Anonymous said...

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!

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! :)

the host file is read-only, that's why u can't save it.

1. backup your file
2. right click->properties->uncheck read-only attribute
4. add the lines
5. save the file
6. right click->properties->check read-only attribute
