Good morning everyone!

I got a new computer and I am in the midst of setting it up. I have a gmail account and I cannot log into it with using this new computer.

I still have my old computer and can log into it using it so I know the log in information is correct and hasn't been compromised.

I have cleared the cache done everything I possibility can think of and I still can not log into gmail with my new computer.

I am using Firefox and I am using Safari on the mac side of the computer.

Anybody have any ideas how to fix this? I googled it and nothing like the problem I am having.

Thanks!

Re: GMail Problem

Is it giving you an error message? or what kind of message is it giving you?

Re: GMail Problem

Hi! The error message I am getting is that the username or password is wrong but I know for sure it isn't wrong as I just set up a notifier on this computer and it checks the mail with that information no problem.

I am wondering now that I said that about the notifier if that is what is causing problems.

Tools - Options - Security - show passords Smile

Re: GMail Problem

Did you try to log into it via IE or not in Firefox? If your password and log in is correct you should be able to get in. I log into my gmail from many different computers with no issues. Also make sure you are using exactly what your password is - caps vs lowercase and sometimes the number 1 can look like a lowercase L.

Re: GMail Problem

Hi Debbie! No I didn't try IE for getting into gmail but I will now. I have never had this issue before and can't figure it out. I set up a notifier on this new computer and it checks the mail for that account just like another one I have at gmail and acts all the same but I can't log into it. On my old computer I can get in no problem.

Re: GMail Problem

Jester Hi U2,

I have had problems in the past with this myself and it turned out to be as simple as -logging out- on the first computer (and, any other login, on any other systems) before you login from a new terminal (computer) somewhere else,

I think it has to do with Googles own security settings , meaning that you cannot -login- on two systems at once until you have logged in on both systems individually and effectively "Registered" the system with your credentials , If I do not -log out- at home and leave my computer downloading a bit torrent , I cannot -login- at the local library for example (I have tried) I could be a "Hacker" and yet, I can still login on my Android phone because Google knows it is mine. (registered to me)

On the subject of Android phones , I also found that my computer would not let me -login- to Gmail from my computer when my phone was tethered to it for the simple fact that Gmail/Google was already accessed on my phone (Always), simply disconnect phone tether and instantly had access again, weird, but true.

I have also had this problem when a friend of mine logged in to Facebook from my computer and did not log out , leaving me without access until they logged in from somewhere else a few frustrating days later. (Their Facebook account was linked to a Gmail account) OMFG Dude! Grrrr! Oh Snap!

So there you have it , you can access Gmail through Internet Explorer when this happens because Internet Explorer simply does not care about Google security policies.

Hope info helps, Regards, Ki113R
