How can I reset my tablet with wiping its memory?

I have an Alldaymall 7 inch Android tablet. I forgot my pattern and it is telling me my Gmail and password is invalid.

Hard resetting an Android device isn't always the best option. If your Tablet keeps saying that your Google account information is invalid, inputting a wrong password actually can cause it. Therefore to unlock your Tablet you'll need to reset the Google account password.

My tablet is locked and I don't know the password. Could I still bypass/remove the Google lock without wiping the data I have on the tablet?

A few months ago, I suddenly found my tablet having been locked by Google. . It seems that it got jostled up in my bag and the pattern lock kicked in as the bag's fabric rubbed against the screen.. I don't know how to remove the lock. I have been trying Google recovery but it ALWAYS just says 'Cannot be verified'. I DON'T want to lose the 3 years of data on the tablet.. I am very sad about this. Mad maybe, but mostly sad. Google recovery doesn't help.

Kept trying to recover it but it does not verify or help recover the account.

Tried plugging it up on computers but Google effectively locked it. I have tried: Almost everything I thought could help:

Technical repair,

Ask Google,

Try recovering the account,

Typing every password I know and calling the retailer store. I think it was caused by: Google lock override the Android pattern lock due to the aforementioned jostling in the bag.

The screen may have been on and rubbing against the fabric of the bag which entered wrong patterns.

My tablet won't work and so I need you to read the description for more information?

I wanted my tablet to go faster so I became a developer by clicking the "build model" thingy in the "about table" section and went from dalvik to art. When I did this it rebooted and took a LONG TIME, when it finished, the background was PITCH BLACK. I entered my password and logged in but it kept saying: unfortunately, com.Android.systemui.... ANYWAYS, I kept on retrying and that message stopped showing up but now when I login to my tablet, it goes back to the lock screen and its been doing this and driving me crazy. I even restarted it but it started "upgrading my apps" every time. please respond quickly and help me?
