You should not need to reformat your computer.

 

Some common issues are:

The Drivers for the Graphics card needs to be updated

The firewall is blocking Second Life

The computer is using a wireless connection (use a wire to the modem)

The login location is bad

An object you last wore, has a problem.

A Group Tag you may have

 

hmm..

 

Are you getting any Error Messages?

You may also wish to try using Google's DNS servers to see if that will resolve the issue. See Using Google Public DNS for more information.

 

You could also change your Start Location to a Region named Smith.

At the Login screen, click on Preferences, find the selection to "show" login location at start screen.... something like that.

Hello,

did you try to start from a different location? Type 'Goguen' in the "start at" field on the login screen of the viewer:

Sim startup location.PNG

 

To answer you can either write a comment, or use the menu at the top right of this page where it says 'Options' pick 'Edit'.

Also you can contact support at: http://support.secondlife.com/contact-support or file a ticket directly at: http://support.secondlife.com/create-case

Have your tried to make a New Alternate Second Life Account? Make an Alt? For testing purposes?

If an Alt can login, the problem would be connected with something your Main Account is wearing, the location, or with LL / SL. You may have to contact Second Life Support, if that is the issue.

Make an Alt, try to Login.

Have you also tried to log in at a different location? If the simulator you've set as your home or last location is offline, this could prevent you from logging in.

Can you login with an ALT (with a different account)?

Are you running the viewer in compatibility mode? If so, try without compatibility mode.
Look in your firewall and antivirus whitelists, often antivirus software like the following are the cause:
F-Secure remove option "scan and remove viruses from internet traffic" for the viewer directory/application (.exe file) as the option to "scan and remove viruses from internet traffic" will effectively prevent login.
Avast -> Realtime shields -> file system shield -> Expert settings -> exclusions -> add -> browse to the viewer's install folder and add it.

Is it possible that your operating system's (Windows Vista for example) security settings are blocking the viewer?

If all that does not help, try downgrading your graphics driver to the previous version.

 

Try changing over to using Google Public DNS. Instructions on how to do this are here: http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/

Check that you have not had your computer infected by a DNS changer malware. There have been a few cases of this lately. See http://www.dcwg.org/ for instructions.

 

Another option: a DNS flush. Instructions on how to do this are here: http://forums.eukhost.com/f15/how-clear-flush-dns-cache-windows-linux-mac-machines-6337/
