Did you know that Chinese brands does not have a feature for Android recovery menu. You need to have

a specific software that was made by the manufacturer for your to perform a Hard Reset. It is like a

counter part for Samsung Kies but this has a reset feature, it is like you are going to re-install the software or the operating system of the phone. Normally, that software is included in the package that came in the device, it looks like a CD but small or an instructional booklet on how to.

It keeps asking for username(email) and password which I seem to have a problem remembering....

This is most likely the Google email account you used to set up the phone when you first purchased it. If you've forgotten the account details, you can go through Google's recovery process here:

Just answer some questions related to your account and see if you can get the account info back.
