Try to access with your Google Account. It is not the end of the world if you have to hard reset because you want to give this phone to your sister.

Too many patterns attempted, how do I find data reset factory, my phone is not responding through the steps you are showing?

It is hard to give instructions if the poster does not mention what device they are trying to hard reset. All Androids have different ways of hard reset methods. Attempt using combinations with the Volume and Power buttons. Search YouTube for hard reset (your device name) and you should be able to see a video tutorial if you get stuck.

Hi sir good morning, how to reset my Android phone with Windows, which software is better?

I have Micromax bolt a62 Android mobile and I forgot phone pattern lock, what can I do for this problem to be solved

You can still recover your phone using Google Accounts Recovery. To hard reset your Micromax Bolt a62 follow this Youtube Tutorial. A hard reset is done manually with no software. If you mean that you want to install new firmware then you would use Micromax Stock ROM.

Finger scanner problem. Backup password not responding?

I've either forgotten the alternate password or it's not working for some reason. Is there any way I can unlock my Android phone from the web via a PC and Google account?

Your Google Account will let you access the phone. You may have to make several attempts before you get the prompt but keep trying.

What should I do to setup the device?

Flash new firmware on the device once you have hard reset if you are still being asked for the email.

I have locked the pattern on my Lenovo K900 hundred. It asks me to put my ID and password, I do, though being correct it does not accept as well?

I am putting the correct ID and password, and it is not accepting, showing as invalid ID and password

Log into your Google Account on the PC. Go into your Settings under My Account and then Security to make sure that you do not have 2 step verification enabled. If this is not the problem the use Google Accounts Authority to see what you are doing wrong when trying to sign in.

I use a pattern to get in my phone. I woke up this morning and it asked for a password. I have no idea what it is. I used to use fingerprint and had a 4 digit number backup but it doesn't work either?

I went to dashboard and locked it and put in new password but it doesn't work either

When you created the new password in Google's Dashboard, you may have suspended access to your device for 72 hours. To get around this you will have to flash new firmware on the device.

I uninstalled system dialler on my Android phone and upon switching it off on opening it asked about security password through speech please help?

Use two fingers to double tap and not just one to scroll or use the touchscreen to enter your password and access Settings. In the upper right hand corner of this page you can search TalkBalk and find the instructions specific to your device.
