    Welcome to Android Central! Is this your phone? Did you get it used from someone else? If so, did they properly remove their Google account prior to the reset? That has to be done in order for the reset to be considered authorized. Otherwise, Google's Factory Reset Protection will kick in, and after the reset is done, it will prompt the user to enter the previous Google account's name and password.

    It's probably asking for your Google account and password after the factory reset. Did you forget that too? Or did you use a completely different Google account to link to this phone back when you first used it?

    Sorry, this is a bit confusing to me. Are you saying you forgot the password for this account, so you changed it, and it won't sign in using that password? Or are you saying that you changed the password, and then forgot that new password?

    Also, are you saying that this account is the one that was originally linked to the phone? Or are you trying to sign in with a different Google account (i.e., the one you use on the the other phone)? The phone is asking for the Google account that was originally linked to the phone, so if that one is different from the one on your other mobile, you can't try to sign in using that other mobile's Google account.

    Sorry, I'm still not sure what you mean. Do you mean that you still remember the new password you created?

    It's also important to know if this account is the one that was originally linked to the phone, as I mentioned in the previous post. If the Google account that was originally linked to the phone is different from the one you're currently using on your laptop and other mobile, and if you forgot the password to this original Google account, then you'll have trouble trying to get into the S7 edge.
