So my idiot friend lost the password to my old account. The console wouldn't let me delete and reset the password but I found the email. So I tried the account recovery page, filled it out and got no where because I made everything (name, security question, nick name) a bunch of random letters and numbers.

So I have access to the console with my old account, is there a console work-around that allows me to obtain the password or windows ID associated with my old account? If not, what else could I do? :blink:

Ring Xbox and say you forgot your password to your account, you'll have to tell them the detials of the account (address, name etc..)

If you have a credit card on the account call them up and say all you know (email/cc info/etc)

I tried it and they didn't believe me. I made the address random and the name and personal info a series of random numbers and letters. I don't have any account detials

so no one can help? What if I hooked up my buddy's hard drive to my computer and opened up my account? Would the password be in there? Or could I transfer my account to my computer?
