check your host file

C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts  , be sure to open with notepad.

and make sure there is not an entry for gmail.com

That machine could be infected with a virus if so

Is this something new?  If so run a System Restore to a time before the problem started.

@sanjeevkmrs - Did you try my suggestion? Because the answer you've chosen is pointing to the same site I suggested but for the extra 'Sign In' button you have to press.
