The easiest way to reset your Tablet is to press the power button and the volume up button together. If that does not work for you, try pressing the power button and reset button together. Once you do this, your phone will be restored to factory settings and you can now punch in a new password. If it does not work, enter wrong password 5 times, click on "forgot password", sign in to your Gmail and create a new password.

More questions and answers

Is that the username and password will I use to my Tablet? Will it work without internet connection?

Oh, thank you for your immediate response! I badly need your help right now. I hope this will work. Thank you.

If you want it to work without the internet, you will have to do a Factory Reset by pressing the volume up and power button together for a while. If you know your username and password, you can simply type it in there and you will have access to your Tablet.

Setting up a Tablet with your Google account info will require an internet connection. The Tablet will turn the WiFi settings on, but you will need to have an available network in order to get it set up. If you don't have access to a WiFi network where you are, I suggest going to a nearby Starbucks or McDonald's and use their free WiFi. It only takes a few seconds for the Tablet to authenticate the Google account when connected.

You will need the Gmail account that was used to set up the phone. If you don't remember the details, try recovering it from Google's Account Recovery site, which we've discussed earlier in this Q&A.

As for hard resetting the phone, you will not lose your picture files, but your user data and all installed apps and games will be erased. To perform a Hard Reset, power off your phone and boot into recovery mode. Hold and press the volume up, home and power buttons together to access the menu.

How can I unlock my Android Tablet if I don't know the email and password account in Google?

I have no internet connection and disabled USB debugging

There are steps provided earlier in this VisiHow Q&A that discuss using the Google Account Recovery tool, which is also an option.

Otherwise, your only other option is to find out the brand and model number of your Tablet and check manufacturer's site for a Hard Reset option. Most tablets and phones have a built in recovery mode menu that you can access by a button press combination.
