Questions and Answers

I have a generic Android tablet running Kitkat 4.4?

The screen boots to the word Android with the robot and just stays there. I am not able to get to any settings to try and repair the machine. Every once in a while I can get it to boot as if it is trying to go to reset and an Android robot with check open an a spinning three dimensional object in center. It then disappears and goes back to the standard Android word with the robot.
