windows live id is associated with a different gamertag

When I finally decided to join xbox live, I signed up online, after using the xbox only as a game system to play the games bought the old fashioned way (at the store). Now I have a username for my online account and I cannot connect to xbox live through the system. I have created an avatar with the username assigned by xbox live, and the username I made just to play games. Neither one will accept the email and password to allow access to xbox live through the console. However, when using the computer it recognizes that I played 1 minute ago.  Strange??? I have never been online using the console as I get the message WINDOW LIVE ID IS ASSOCIATED WITH A DIFFERENT GAMERTAG.  Any suggestions??

Also if I ever get online, will I be able to merge the two together?

You need to use the recovery tool in order to get your account on the xbox.

Also, there is no way to merge accounts.
