My Lenovo tablet has been locked and the network connection has been lost?

Unfortunately, if you are unable to connect your Lenovo tablet to the internet, you won't be able to enter your Google account information to unlock your tablet and reset the password that you forgot. Your only option at this point is to perform a Factory Reset to remove the forgotten password so that you can use your tablet again. Note, however, that performing a Factory Reset will wipe all of your tablet's data. Unfortunately, it's the only option available to you at this point. To learn how to perform a proper Factory Reset on your Lenovo tablet, read through and follow the steps in this great VisiHow how-to article.

Reset Nextbook Tablet without restoring to factory mode?

Hi, My daughter has changed her Login dot pattern of her Nextbook Tablet and can't remember it and after too many attempts to log in, now the Tablet is blocked. I tried to log in with my Gmail account but it would not accept it because it is not recognizing the internet connection, so it does not log into internet to make the verification. Can you please help me?

Forgot my password to open my Prontotec Android tablet?

I've held down the power and volume button at the same time. I've released both once the screen turns on and it doesn't give me the factory reset options. I have also held both buttons down then once the screen turns on I have released the power button and then when the Android guy comes on release the volume button and still no factory reset menu. Both attempts I have made sure to power off first. I don't know what else to do. Oh I also have put in my wrong pin so many times but forgot my pin never comes up. It would let me try prob 100 times of course having to wait the 20 sec in between every 5 attempts. Help please. Because all these options take you to the factory reset menu. My tablet is not going to that menu no matter what I do. I have tried: 1st:I have made sure tablet is off. Then have pushed the volume high button and power button down at the same time. Then once the screen comes on release both buttons and no menu. 2nd: I have made sure tablet is off. I have pushed both volume up and power button down at the same time. Once the screen turns on released the power button and then once the Android man comes on then released the volume button and still no menu. 3rd: I have put in my wrong pin the 5 times but it never says forgot password. Instead it says after 20 seconds try again,and I put in the wrong password again another 5 times. It tells me again to wait the 20 seconds then put the password. I could do this 100 times and never does forget password ever pop up. I don't know at this point how to get it to the hard factory reset menu. Please help me. I think it was caused by: I don't have the slightest clue at all. There wasn't a lot of crap on my tablet. It had hardly been used and I got it brand new. One of the reasons I forgot my password because it wasn't used that much. So I really don't know

My 2 grandsons received each a tablet to use. The didn't do it but some one changed their password. Garrett is a Samsung. At first he just did a zig-zag on the front with the numbers then someone put a password on it. He is only 7 years old and can't remember the password. I want to know if there is a way to get into it and fix it so he can use it again?

How do I fix it so he can use it again?. I have tried: Nothing because I don't know what to do everyone tells me there is no way to fix it but I think there is. I think it was caused by: Someone changed the pass code on it when he first got it he just had to swipe some numbers but someone changed it to a password
