If you know what your Google Account details are, then click the Forgot Pattern link which will appear after several wrong attempts. You will need your Google Account anyway even if you hard reset the device because your phone has Lollipop or Marshmallow OS on it. There was a new security measure with this OS that prevents someone from hard resetting your device and using it right away. Now the phone prompts for the last Google Account associated with the device. If you do not know what the account was, use Google Accounts Recovery.

Did you use the Backup and Restore from Sony's PC Companion previously? If so, then connect to the PC again and use that to restore at least to the last back up point. You should connect to PC Companion and run a complete software check on your device. You will lose all of your data, but it will update the firmware and patch any issues. Do this to avoid bricking your device which will make it harder to install the new firmware.
