I have bought a laptop on amazon a couple days ago. I would like to login to check my order. But I cannot login into amazon.com or amazon.fr

What I have tried:

  • Tried to change password (click forgot password, go to email, go to reset page, and enter new password) Then the new password does't work.
  • Tried to save new password into clipboard to make sure the new one is the one I type
  • Tried to wait a few minutes after password reset
  • Tried to reset on a chrome new private window (no cookies)
  • Tried to reset in IE
  • Tried to reset via amazon.com, amazon.fr, amazon.co.uk
  • I have noticed that even if I am not logged in, amazon recognizes me (probably with cookies)
  • Ran a Microsoft Security Essentials scan

enter image description here

So I have tried to click sign out before signin in. (Note that in this situation, if I click "my orders" I have to sign in. So in this state, recognized but not signed in.

I am running out of ideas. What do you suggest.

Cleared cookies too? –  VenkatH Sep 11 '12 at 13:43
    
Just tried, yes –  pinouchon Sep 11 '12 at 13:43
    
I would assume you don't have cookies enabled or similar - when you're saving your password, it's not storing any data on your machine and so can't authenticate you. –  Dave Rook Sep 11 '12 at 13:54
    
@DaveRook I do have cookies enabled –  pinouchon Sep 11 '12 at 14:00

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

1 Answer

The problem was that my account has been frozen (even tough on login, the message is "incorrect email or password"). Amazon wanted me to send them a document by fax to prove my identity.

I have no fax. I ended up creating another account.
