    Question could use some help..pleaseeee

    I bought an asus iconia 16gm 10.1 in screen from ez pawn in waterloo, AI...they sold it to me for real cheap because they said it was password protected (the swipe way) but I invested the $85 thinking I could do a hard reset or something but that did not work after you try 5 times it assumes you forgot the password and asks for ur google info (obviously mine was not correct).There must be some way around this?....perhaps reinstalling android software (i dont know how this is done but I imagine on some kind of sd card with a bootable image) or perhaps I could flash the rom but idk how that would be done either....(I am a noob I apologize)...but a little guidance here would be much appreciated

    Congrats on your new tablet.

    You will need to do a factory reset. See this thread here: [HOW TO] Perform A Factory Reset

    eh it did not work and actually in the insstructions in that video it don't matter either way if you use the screen lock button or not...both ways it erases the catche a green android pops up that looks like his insides are a clock then 2 sec later another android with a bit ! inside him pops up and so I restart and it says to many password attempts have been made and to enter my google info (the previous owners) did I do something wrong it feels like it maybe...

    Sounds like you missed a step. Check the video and read the instructions again.

    I have never done it on an Acer myself, but many others here have.
