Origin Won't Let Me Log In

★★★★ Novice

Okay. So I've logged into my Origin account MANY times. But not it's saying that I can't because my origin isn't in "online log in" mode. And it's not letting me log in beause it's apparently my "first" time. This doesn't make since to me and I've looked everything  up and have tried it all but it still won't work. So does anybody have any solutions? It would be a big help! Thanks! (:

Could you please try the steps in the order below:

  1. Manually uninstall Origin
  2. Run CCleaner
  3. Restart your router/modem and do a Clean Boot
  4. Make sure that your UAC is enabled and set to notify
  5. Download the latest version of Origin and install the client
  6. Add firewall/antivirus exceptions for Origin and open the needed ports
  7. When starting Origin, please make sure to run it as Administrator

Make sure your system's clock is correct. That believe it or not can mess up stuff. Also, a weird one, change your desktop resolution to the lowest setting, change it back to default, and try logging in again. For some reason I've seen that work.

None of those solutions helped me. /: It was working just fine a day before it happened. And then I woke up the next morning and it was doing this.

I know this thread is really old, but I figured I would chime in for anyone still interested. I had the same problem, and I fixed it by changing my blocked cookies settings in my internet browser. It was blocking cookies from EA, so my password was not being allowed to be typed in. Maybe this helps, maybe not. You could also try using a different browser.
