Minecraft is not connecting to internet!
Check https://help.mojang.com to make sure their services are up and running!
IF they are:
Proceed to next step:
Option 1: WINDOWS ONLY
easy way: make a new text docment [newtext.txt] rename it to ip.bat
Right click it and select edit.
insert this code (in red):
double click the new file> a command window will open > when it stops your PC has successfully obtained a new ip address from the router.
close the command window and try logging in to minecraft now.
Is this the right account name that I paid for?
type user name after "=" in browser then hit enter.
Did You forget your Password?
It is STRONGLY recommended that you Merge your Account.
doing so can help prevent account theft.
If you know that you did not merge your account and it will not let you merge it, then you need to visit this website immediately!
If MINECRAFT goes down and you decide that it is time to mod your client...
YOU - backup your saves
YOU - backup your bin folder
If you fail to do either one of these things, I can guarantee you wont be happy. You will not be able to update Minecraft if its site goes down
you will not be able to fix your broken client either.
Just a friendly reminder
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<USER_NAME>\Application Data\.minecraft
Windows Vista and 7: C:\Users\<USER_NAME>\appdata\roaming\.minecraft
Mac: open finder, under places select (username), Library\Application support\minecraft
YES!!! You can even choose where it goes!
HERE IS HOW: (WINDOWS SOLUTION ONLY)
Use a batch file to allow minecraft to quickly and easily install into an empty folder.
make a new text document and name it "minecraft.txt" open it with notepad and type the code in red.
Place the newly created minecraft.txt and the minecraft.exe files into a new folder. rename the extension "minecraft.txt" to "minecraft.bat"
activate the batch file... First run will be slow... new folders are being generated.
second activation wont create new folders but you must use the batch file to launch minecraft.exe every time.
otherwise it will load the default application data folder.
THIS STEP IS JUST INFORMATIVE:
It explains how the batch file works.
That will open minecraft.exe and set the current directory to run as appdata so the game data and world save get downloaded/saved wherever you run the batch from.
Launch the minecraft launcher and install a fresh copy of minecraft (create a new Profile and label it "CLEAN INSTALL".
Go to the versions folder inside the .minecraft folder, and copy the version you want to mod.
Rename the copied folder, and both the files inside, to some new name, example: "modded 1.blah".
Lastly, open the .json file in a text editor, and change the line that will read something like "id": "1.6.1", so that the ID matches the new name.
The new launcher should now show a version "modded 1.blah" in the list, but since that version doesn't exist on the Minecraft servers, it won't get overwritten.
You are now ready to start modding the (version).jar (mod it the same way as before. You must complete the above steps first, Otherwise it will redownload the version that you modded and overwrite any changes you made to the file.
This could be caused by using the incorrect version of a mod for Minecraft. Make sure your mod matches the current version of minecraft that your running.
[SOLUTION] Close Minecraft. Then Delete the bin folder in your .MineCraft folder and restart game.
If you used the option Force Update, this is what happens:
-update will redownload all of your .minecraft bin folder
-If you had mods installed for minecraft their files will be over written.
^^^IF force update does not fix minecraft^^^
-You will need to delete your bin folder
ALLWAYS BACKUP your bin folder. it saves alot of trouble.
then try again.

Make security changes
If you've run a server before, you'll probably be OK, otherwise, you need to make arrangements that let the server talk to the internet. This includes:
-Port forwarding if you are using a router.
-Telling your firewall to make an exception for Minecraft.
If you have Windows Firewall, it will alert you the first time that the server tries to connect. On that occassion, tell it to always allow this.
Get the server software.
If you are using Windows, go straight for the Minecraft_Server.exe link on the download page.
Save the file to the folder you want it in.
Run the server software for the first time.
It will generate lots of other files, and start running straight away!
● Open the server.properties file in a text editor such as Notepad.
If you don't have that file, use this one, and save it as server.properties in the folder of your server:
#Minecraft server properties
#Thu Aug 12 18:50:39 BST 2010
Leave server-ip blank!
*-If you want people to be able to log in as whoever they want and you trust everyone who is ever going to connect, then change online-mode to false. This is a very bad idea in most circumstances.
If you want to change the port.
Remember you have to forward/open whatever port you choose to use.
Change the level-name if you want. Nobody sees it, and it's less trouble to just leave it as-is.
● Next, open ops.txt
Put your username in it. Next, giving each name a new line, put the names of anyone you want to be an op.
Don't worry, you can make ops in-game later.
Download the latest Minecraft launcher if you haven't already. At the same time the new server came out, so did a new client.
Load it up, select multiplayer, and try to connect to: localhost
Now follow the appropriate instruction from these scenarios:
Follow this link to find out how to get your local IP, then give that to everyone who wants to connect.
Go to http://whatismyip.org/ and send that address to everyone whom you want to connect, or add your server to the server list.
Your server should now be working for everyone!
If you have an error, don't make a new thread!
First, check out the FAQ.
-for people connecting that are in the same house-hold (via a router) type local ip [EXAMPLE] 192.168.1.55
- for people that are not in same house-hold have them type your ip http://www.whatismyip.org/
Step 1 - Press start, click run, type: cmd hit [ENTER]. In the command window type: ipconfig give it a sec it will output info:
leave the command window open you will need it for next step!!!
Remember the one that says ip address (this is what you give people in your house to connect to the server)>>> EXAMPLE: 192.168.1.55
Step 2 - now open your web browser. in the address bar type in the DEFAULT GATEWAY number. you should be on your router now. type in password and the user name if it asks.
Step 3 - on your router page. should say something along the lines of: "firewall / port triggering" click that when you port forward remember that its your ip address>>> EXAMPLE: 192.168.1.55 that is hosting. set port forwarding save changes and log out.
hit the keys [windows][r] at the same time

Enable the (Hidden) Administrator Account on Windows 7 or Vista Many people familiar with prior versions of Windows are curious what happened to the built-in Administrator account that was always created by default. Does this account still exist, and how can you access it?
The account is created in Windows 7 or Vista, but since it’s not enabled you can’t use it. If you are troubleshooting something that needs to run as administrator, you can enable it with a simple command.
Note: You really shouldn’t use this account for anything other than troubleshooting. In fact, you probably shouldn’t use it at all.
Enable Built-in Administrator Account
First you’ll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)
Now type the following command:
net user administrator /active:yes
You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice. (Note that the screenshots are from Vista, but this works on Windows 7)
You’ll note that there’s no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.
Disable Built-in Administrator Account
Make sure you are logged on as your regular user account, and then open an administrator mode command prompt as above. Type the following command:
net user administrator /active:no
The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen anymore.
This is completly by your own risk, don't blame me if you can't use your PC after doing this.
Bad video card drivers!
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.
A simple solution that i found for this was:
1 - First, download the latest OpenGL software. You can find it here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... engl95.exe
2 - Create a Restore Point, in the case of something goes a bad way.
3 - Copy the archive you downloaded to C:\Windows\System32
4 - Execute it, and if asks your for overwrite archives, just let it make it work by pressing Yes (y).
5 - Try running Minecraft.exe again.
Alright for the past few days I have wanted to buy Minecraft but couldn't because I'm under 18, don't have a bank account, or credit card, and none of my friends or family wanted to buy it for me. So I though that I would go out and buy a prepaid visa/debit card. I put 26 us dollars on it. I went and tried using it as a credit card and buy minecraft but failed. So then I read somewhere that you could put the money from your prepaid visa card onto a paypal account so I tried that. No luck. So you can't buy a prepaid visa and use it like a credit card to by minecraft and you can't put the money from your prepaid visa to fund your paypal account. So how do you buy minecraft?
First you need a paypal account. So go and make one. Next go to a place where they sell MONEYPAK cards. I found one in the same place where I found my prepaid visa. Go buy it for 4.95 US dollars and then add on $22 more US dollars. So your total should be $26.95 US. A money pack card is used to put your cash onto your paypal account. Then go home and login to your paypal account which probably has 0 dollars on it. Go up to ADD FUNDS at the top of the screen and click on ADD FUNDS FROM MONEYPAK. Which is the card you have. Follow the onscreen instructions and it should put money that you paid to buy the card onto you paypal account. WALLA! now all you have to do is go and buy minecraft using your paypal account.
