How to Solve Chat GPT Not Working Issues; Network Error And More

Chat GPT has been having issues lately from network errors, login problems, and conversations lost, and sometime you could just input some queries hoping to get answers only for it to just give you back an error. In this post, I’m going to explore all these issues and find a solution for each one of the issues.

We are going to identify the issues by discussing how it happens why and how you a proper solution in each part.

1: Network Error

Chat GPT has this problem whereby sometimes you try to ask some questions only to get a network error. I have had this issue many times and it’s frustrating believe me. Especially if you need work done fast whether it’s for class or just doing research for personal use. The bottom line is that it’s boring but don’t worry I got you covered, here is how you solve troubleshoot the chat gpt page and continue with the research you were doing.

  1. Try clicking into the previous chat conversation and then back again. This is act as a soft refresh to your current conversation, it mostly works and you’ll only need to reinput your query and continue
  2. If the first one doesn’t work then open the page on a new browser tab. This will resolve it if there was any network issues on your side, something as internet connection issues. This should work if you have a stable internet connection.
  3. If all the above still didn’t work try starting a new chat. This one should be the last because you’ll lose your previous conversation on that chat even though you can still see them on the chat conversation section.

2: Chat GPT Login Problems

Sometimes you try to log in to chat gpt but you find yourself logged out for some unknown reasons. The easiest way around this is to just reinput your details and login but this too sometimes doesn’t work. Try these to resolve the chat gpt login problem.

  1. Reload the page and log in again. This will ensure your any problem with the page is flashed out before you try again.
  2. If the above doesn’t work double check your email address and your passwords if they are all correct sometimes you may have forgotten your credentials.
  3. If the above doesn’t work, then you need to click on the ‘Forgot Password’ button, input your email address, and change your password. This will help you change to new credentials. Use the new credentials to log in. 
  4. Another way to deal with the ChatGPT login issue is to use Google or Microsoft social login, which will automatically log you in. 
  5. If all of the above doesn’t work, then just write to OpenAI to resolve the issue

3: Session Issues

Have you tried to start a chat with ChatGPT from where you left off, only to find that it doesn’t want to give you an answer? The problem could be a chat session issue. Solving this is easy – all you have to do is refresh the browser, and all will be well. But there are other solutions, just in case those don’t work.

  1. Log out then log in again. This will make sure you start a new fresh session and all should be fine
  2. Clear caches and browser cookies. This will force the browser to request new sessions and all should go well from here.

Sometimes when you try to ask ChatGPT a question, the answer doesn’t come out correctly or doesn’t come out at all. There are some reasons why this might happen: you may be asking for something that isn’t in the model’s database. Remember, currently, the OpenAI models are trained on data up to 2021, so if you ask it something that is after 2021, it won’t give a correct answer. Another reason could be that you’re giving a large input that ChatGPT isn’t able to tokenize.

4: Chat GPT No Results Issues

Here is some solution you could try to resolve these issues.

  1. Always ask questions that are not current. This is because the OpenAI models were trained on data up to 2021. So if your question involves a date, try asking questions that are not current. 
  2. Don’t use large inputs: Large text inputs will cause ChatGPT to not give you results, so try asking shorter questions. In case you need to ask something that is long, then slice it into smaller chunks and feed it to ChatGPT step by step. 
  3. The issue may be that there is a lot of noise or interference in your network connection, which could cause ChatGPT to not function correctly.

5: Lost History Issues

I once lost all my ChatGPT chats and I was worried that someone may have hacked my OpenAI account. But then I realized that this is a common issue and I did some research to resolve it. Here’s what I found:

  1. In case you lose your ChatGPT chat history, just wait for a few days, and you’ll see them come back. 
  2. Another way is to log out and log back in. 
  3. Refresh the page and continue using the chat.

6: Chat Not Deleting

We often have many conversations in ChatGPT, which is great. However, there may come a time when you need to clear your chats and start fresh. Nevertheless, sometimes the chats don’t delete no matter how many times you try. There are some reasons why this might happen, such as your browser not responding, network issues, or OpenAI backend issues. I have experienced this issue before, but here are some ways I dealt with it:

  1. Try clearing your browser cache and cookies
  2. Log out and log back into your OpenAI account
  3. Refresh the page
  4. If the issue persists, write to OpenAI support for assistance.
  5. Restart your browser in case it’s not responding. Then try again.
  6. Check if your internet connection is stable. The chat may refuse to delete if there is a connectivity issue, which is understandable. If you’re experiencing network issues, resolve them, and then try again.
  7. Sometimes, you may delete the chats but it may take some time for the changes to reflect on the website. If this happens, simply reload the page and try again. If the chats still persist, repeat the process until they are deleted.

Note: Be cautious when deleting chats. Don’t try to delete multiple chats just because one is not deleting, as it may result in losing important chats. Handle the deletion process carefully.


In conclusion, most of the issues with ChatGPT can be resolved by simply checking your internet connection and reloading the page. We hope these solutions will help you quickly resolve any problems you may face. 

Anyways have a lovely time and peace✌️

I love coding and writing
