  1. New Device Setup Issues

    I recently purchased a new computer when I encountered a problem.

    I have an office 365 account for school, and I am signed into my current computer with this account.

    However, when I tried to sign into this account on my new device for the initial setup, I was told that this account does not exist. I am quite confused, does my account not exist? Is there some limitation for a school account? or perhaps some other issue?

    Any and all help is appreciated,


    If it is of relevance, my version of office is office 365 A1 for students.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
