Why my Samsung Tablet has no forgot password button in the screen?

It's likely that this is because you've exhausted the number of attempts you are allowed to make. The Android operating system locks devices when incorrect passwords are used too many times in a row. This helps prevent personal information from getting into the hands of people who might steal a phone or Tablet.

This means that you won't be able to use your device unless you restore it to factory default settings. This will delete the data on your device, but it will at least allow you to use it again.

You can find a guide for how to complete that process here: Perform a factory reset on Android Device.

How can I reset my tablet with wiping its memory?

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 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?
