    Inability to access gmail account only from a laptop

    Are you having trouble to enter your Gmail account from your laptop but not from other devices? Get a quick solution to this problem with expert tips.

    Whenever I tried to enter my Gmail account from my laptop, instead of asking for a password, it asked for my email address and I entered the same. But it said, there is no such google account. Thus I could not enter my Gmail account from my laptop.

    But I enter my Gmail account from both my PC and mobile. But why it behaved so strangely from my laptop? As my PC is out of order at present, I have to enter my account from my laptop. How can I solve the problem?

  • You can also try a very common method which people use often.

    Go to the control panel and select add/ remove programs. Now remove the gmail program and clean the hard disk once using system tools etc.

    After this again install the gmail program and configure it interactively. It is more and less automatic process.

    I hope your problem will be resolved with this.

  • Ms Mitra,
    If you are able to log in through your mobile but not through your laptop it means there is a spelling mistake in the google id. Please check the spelling of google account.
    Please also check keyboard in the setting. If there is more than one user in the laptop this is a common problem. I have faced this problem. Use admin user to log in. Sometimes # is typed when we press 2 with the shift key. please check. I am 100% sure that there is a problem of the typing error. Hence correct it.

    Honesty is the best policy.

  • Try logging in from a different browser. It may help. Or, remove cookies & history of your browser. It may help.

  • It would be really helpful if you give snapshot of page where you are asked to enter your email id.
    There could be following reasons.
    1. You are really entering wrong email id and because of it is asking it to re-enter correct gmail id.
    2. There might be browser issue which is looping back to sign-in page.

    1. What Operating system you are attempting to login? Rather what browser it is? clean your browser history , cache and try again.
    2. Make sure you are really connected to internet by browsing other websites.
    3. Attempt gmail login from different browsers of laptop
    4. Gmail or google is very secured so before attempting multiple times from laptop make sure you have recovery phone number added to restore account.
