I am able to login to data loader for production instance however I am able to login to sandbox. I am adding the security token at the end too. I am using version 37 of data loader and windows 7.
When I try to login into data loader, I get a login error "Error:Check your username and password. If you still can't login, contact your Salesforce admin". I am sure that I am using the correct username and password. I am also adding security token at the end of password.

If Login history doesn't show the login attempt, it means your user name is wrong.
Be sure that server host is
https://test.salesforce.com and your sandbox name added end of the org. username.

With the newer version there is a new option available called "Password Authentication". Can you please try with this.
