    Re: which is correct

    1) and 2) seem ok, though a bit blunt.
    I would prefer
    The password you gave me doesn't seem to work/ be working.

    Please see and note my amendments (in red) to your original post.

    I agree that "That password does not seem to work" is a good option. Some alternatives:

    I couldn't log in using the password you gave me.
    The password you gave me didn't work.
    I was unable to log in with the password you gave me.
