I have forgotten my Google password?

I have attempted to unlock my tablet 5 times and it locked itself after that. I know the username for my Google ID but I don't know the password? How will I fix this problem?

If you remember the username for your Google account, you may be able to recover the password so you can unlock your tablet using your Google account. To do that, go to this Google website to see if you are able to retrieve your account information. If you are able to retrieve it, enter your information into your tablet. It will then unlock. If you aren't able to retrieve your information, however, you will unfortunately need to perform a Factory Reset. This will wipe all of your tablet's information. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Android tablet, follow the steps in this great VisiHow guide. After the reset is complete, be sure to log your device into a Google account to which you know the password so you don't have to perform another Factory Reset in the future if you forget your pattern lock again.

How to reset? Locked out, cannot recall password or find the option to reset, no "forgot password" option visible, Android tablet?

I cannot recall password and there is no visible button for "forgot password" or option to reset. This is a Digiland 10 tablet, Android thanks.. I have tried: Tried to enter reset mode with volume and power keys, received resetting droid with "no command" which shortly left the screen, and returned to enter password.. I think it was caused by: Bad memory
