This is the weirdest problem i have ever encountered... NO tech-supporters from neither Origin or Windows have been able to help.. Even their so-called expert team that my case was escalated to...

I cannot log into www.origin.com anymore.. Since 2 days ago.. My PW is correct and it works fine when i log in on my macbook.. But on my Windows 10 PC (the one i play games from) i just cant log in !... PW is correct, Origin says nothing is wrong with my account.. I have tried disabling right about everything from anti-virus to firewall and every other third-party program.. I reset the router, flushed cache / DNS.. Did a bunch of tests, wiped my entire hard-drive and re-installed windows 10.

STILL DOES NOT WORK.... I cannot log into this website.. It is literally the most weird thing.. I could understand if it has something to do with the origin client on my PC, but i cannot even log into the website ! Again.. works fine on my macbook, Origin says everything is ok on their end.. Tried re-installing windows completely..

Seriously, does anyone have ANY clue what could cause this? Do i have to buy a new computer ? i spend like 1500 dollars on this setup just a couple of years ago :(

Please please help, will provide any information you need to help me...

I would worry that you have gotten a DNS hijack malware that is redirecting your "www.origin.com" to a fraud website and your password has been stolen. You get the "bad password" response because there is nothing behind the fake site.

Do a DNS lookup on your macbook and get the IP address of origin.com. Then try that IP address on your Windows box.

what version of windows? what antivirus/malware software?
motherboard model? or how are you connecting to the internet? wifi/ethernet
Windows 10, no anti virus (had AVG before but completely wiped by hard-drive when re-installing windows) Motherboard Asus Z-370P , ethernet, have tried both wireless and ethernet no difference...
 
If it's some sort of glitch Windows/Origin/firewall/browser interconnection glitch that might take countless hours to stumble onto/ identify/ cure, it's helpful to remember that if you have a USB 3.0 flash drive installer media and a decently fast SSD, Windows can be installed in about all of 5 minutes these days... (I see your post says you reinstalled, but, was this a 'reinstall/keep my files/settings'?)

try direct access to the modem and not thru the router?
Hmm how do i do that :D? My router is plugged into the wall with a cable... I dont think i have a modem ? Im not even sure what that is to be honest.. wasnt that those things ppl had in 1998 where you couldnt use the phone while on the inter net :)?... But does it not seem unlikely that it is router problems since my macbook has no problem logging in (using the same router)?
