Why is not my Google account responding on my Android phone?

Due to too much attempts for my phone lock pattern, it has been giving me that I should sign in with my Google account through my phone, but when I enter my Google account it shows invalid

First of all, you need an active internet connection through WiFi or mobile data, if that is not the status, then you would get the invalid message. If you already have an active internet connection, sometimes this happens with Android devices, but it is easy to fix. You just need to visit the Google Account Recovery portal, where you'll be able to reset your password, and regain access to your device. Please scroll to the link, which is provided in another answer on this Q&A article.

If this does not work, then you'll need to perform a Factory Reset, also linked in the same answer above.

I am locked out of my Galaxy Note4. I need it unlocked but not for any carrier, I'm stuck at the lock screen and cannot get inside it. I know my Google account information, please help.

I was in the process of changing my pattern passcode to a pin number and while I was doing so I sneezed and the phone locked. The pin code saved but I touched the phone while I was sneezing. I do not know the pin and the phone is not asking for a backup password or a Google ID. How can I get back into my phone with my Google information because I know what that info is and I don't want my phone disabled

You choose the Google Account option and use those credentials. If it is refusing still, login to Gmail from your PC to go into My Accounts. Under Security, you will see a section for Applications. Go in and see if you have 2 step verification enabled. You can also go to Samsung's [1] to unlock your Note4 if you set up a Samsung Account and associated it with the Note4.

Just after I changed my router, my Android tablet is asking for a password I never defined. According to the instructions on this site, I should get a link saying "forgotten password" after a while and be able to enter my Google account information, but my machine will not offer me this possibility even though it is in theory connected to another network which worked before (the password to use that network is stored in the tablet and it says it is connected to the network). Thanks for your help.

You are probably going to have to hard reset the tablet. In the future a PSA for everyone, before you change your router you will want to unlock all Android devices. You may think you attempted the password several times but it was not enough for the pin lock prompt yet.

My 4GB Zeepad 7.0 tablets multi-touch?

My grand kid got a hold of my tablet and now it says too many patterns attempts, how can I resolve this problem? Can you help

First, attempt the password until you get the option to use your Google Account. If that does not happen, then you will have to hard reset the tablet. There are no way to hard reset your Zeepad without installing new firmware. Zeepad does not have an official website but search online for your model and the words Stock ROM and you will be able to get stock ROM.

I have a Kindle Fire HD7 and I'm pretty sure it has a virus, it always freezes and turns off, what do I do?

I went on to a website and it stopped working completely, it always teases me and I want it back, do you have any advice to get the virus off (if it has one). I have tried: Turning it on and off, charging it, waiting a long long period of time. I think it was caused by: I went on a website that probably had the virus

If the website had a virus or you suspect one, install an anti virus program like Malware Bytes to see if it can sniff out the virus. In the future, enable smart search in your Google Settings which gives you a warning about possible virus pages. If you still do not find any virus then it may be a hardware issue. These can be resolved at times with a hard reset or firmware update.
