This is an odd one:

Both my gmail and hotmail accounts are not accepting my passwords. I suspect something is wrong with gmail because I get “information temporarily not available” on the gmail tab of my personalized google page, but not sure so thought I’d ask if anyone here has experienced this or anything like it recently.

Have no idea what’s up with hotmail… I’ve tried my password so many times on it now, its blocked me from trying. Very bizarre and scary.

maybe its not a Caps Lock problem..

maybe someone knows your password and changed it.
try accessing other services (after logging out from them, and the log-on to them once again). and see if it accepts your password..

notify us how did it go :)

You can remove it from your keyboard, I always do! It will collect quite a bit of dust and/ or crumbs/ ash inside tho after a while... (depending if you eat/ smoke on the computer).
