Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have several Stack Exchange accounts which I access from the OpenID. Yesterday I changed my password through Stack Overflow account, from a computer, which I usually don't use to access any Stack Exchange account. I successfully changed the password and accessed my account from that account.

Just now I tried to access my account from a different computer, but I'm unable to access it. Password recovery is also not working!

@ShaWizDowArd Nothing happens! that's the more annoying thing! When I enter my username and password and click Sign In nothing happens! (the phrase "Sign in with your...", and the text boxes disappear. and that's it!) I'm not redirected to my home page, 'login' option stays visible in the menu, and so on! – CRoshanLG Nov 12 '12 at 11:06
Most browsers today got dev tools with a Network Profiler among them.. open that profiler and see the traffic, it might give you hint about what is failing. – Shadow Wizard Nov 12 '12 at 11:07

I tried clearing the cache like juergen d have suggested, but it didn't solved the problem. Then I tried clearing all the cookies, cache, browsing history, ect (everything!). And restarted the browser! Now the problem is solved!
