Hello, my name is Samuel, today I'm going to explain to you the completely ridiculous situation I'm in right now. around the holiday season last year, I was purchased a 1-year subscription card to Xbox live membership. after getting back home from my vacation during the season, i activated my card to my account [mod removed]which uses the gamer tag [mod removed]. it has been less than half of a year since then yesterday when I attempted to use my Gold membership subscription to play Halo Reach online a bit before starting on a different game, Fable 3, which I borrowed from a friend. While attempting to connect, the server said that my account ID wasn't valid, so I thought that maybe that might be because in April, I was at a friend's birthday party. She did not have gold membership and therefore could not play online. I volunteered the use of my account for said use. So I attempted to recover my account, naturally. However upon putting in my information (my windows live id, followed by my password) It again said that my account was not valid. so I got online via my computer and attempted to sign in to xbox.com and it brought me to the account creation screen.
