Have you tried accessing through other browsers ?

Try resetting History and cache.

Try loading OWA light (you will get this option while logging in to OWA)

Try to loggin from different system and check, If working fine, Seems to be issue with browser,

let's assume that you have recently upgrade to sp then it fails.

can you run
get-owavirtualdirectory | fl *enabled

just to confirm the configuration is intact.

next is to find out whether your EWS, can you use OWA to create a rule? (just to make sure your EWS component is still working)

Has the password expired?
By default, changing expired passwords isn't possible.

Try the guide below to enable this feature if you haven't already.
