Is the Tablet asking for your Google sign in password? If yes, you can try to recover your account info here:

https://www.google.com/accounts/recovery/‎

You can also find out the brand and model number of your Tablet and check the manufacturer's site for any Hard Reset method or firmware file downloads so you can wipe out the existing settings to get back into your Tablet.

In your question you say that you remember your pattern so all you will have to do is enter your pattern in order to unlock your device. Also if you have forgotten your Gmail information you can visit www.gmail.com in order to use the forgot username/password option to gain entry into the device.

Locked out of my Android Tablet?

My boyfriend decided he wanted to look through my Tablet. Instead of just asking, he tried guessing my password, and failed. I have a Google Account but my Tablet won't accept my user ID or password. I think this is because I had recently turned off WiFi. It's a cheap no name Tablet, and all I really want is my pictures and my music. Please help!!

When you are locked out of your Android Tablet, and can not get internet access to reset the password, in most cases you can still access all of the images, music, and photos on your SD card. As you've said that it is a cheap no name Tablet, you likely have a limited amount of device memory, so plugging your Tablet into a computer should allow you to quickly and easily access the files on your SD card. Depending on your device and version of the Android operating system, you may also be able to access files on the device memory.

Once you've done these things, you can Factory Reset your device by following the steps in our article on how to perform a Factory Reset of an Android device. However, depending on the make and model of your device, there may be other options, such as a small hole on your device where you can start the reset process. Just keep in mind that when you reset the device, you will lose all information stored on it. As a precaution, it's usually a good idea to remove your SD card before performing any Factory Reset.
