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
