post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
i am now unable to access my steam account on my laptop because steam apparently dosent recognize my laptop anymore?

the only way is to have them send me an email which of course, is nowhere to be found.

Give it a second and check your spam folder. I had this problem as well at one point, but it just took a bit longer because now that they've implemented this new Steam Guard feature, EVERYONE has to activate it, so their e-mail server could just be slower than normal.

Dont worry to much its just steam guard, i had to resett mine 6-7 times last week on a new install.

Couldnt get steam running properly had to reinstall few times and every time i did i had to have new email and password,bit annoying really but its extra peace of mind i suppose.

Had the same thing. Main pc was blocked from steam whilst my lappy could log in fine. Shot a very angry message to Steam support and they removed the Steam Guard from my account.

Thing was, no matter what i tried i couldn't validate my pc on my sig rig. what so i take it's still a bit buggy. Tried validating over 20 times

Sounds like you need to get in touch with steam if you cant access your email account to recover the steam guard code.

There was about four times where everytime I tried to log in, it said it didn't recognize my computer. And they would send the email and I would input the code, and all would be fine until I restarted my pc. Then I would have to do it again. After I while it stopped though. *shrug* I dunno.
