This kind of error happens when you try to connect to your IRC account and you are using a nickname that is already being used by someone else on that particular network.
Click the icon in the error message.
In the Nickname text box, type a new nickname.
If you have registered that nickname within the network you are using, set the password for that nickname. For more information, see.
Switch the account off, and then switch it on to try to reconnect to the service.
