Before you try to reset your Android 4.2 tablet PC, see if you can unlock it with your Google account information. Enter the wrong password up to 20 times until your tablet asks for your Google account information. Enter it; your tablet will unlock, allowing you to remove or change the password to something you can remember. If you don't remember your Google account information, go here to try to recover it. If you are unable to retrieve your information, your tablet doesn't ask for your Google account, or if you never signed into a Google account in the first place, you will need to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe all of your tablet's data. To learn how to perform a Factory Reset to unlock your Android tablet, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow article. After the reset is complete, be sure to log your tablet into a Google account to which you know the password. In addition, you should write down the password you choose so you can refer to it in the future if you forget your password again.
