The only way to get through the locked screen is to take it back to the store you "got" it from. If you stole it, if you take it almost anywhere they are going to contact authorities since it has traced data within it. The only way to unlock it at this point is to take it to somewhere such as LaptopXchange or places that generally hack devices or "unlocks" as they call it.

This hard reset can be done even if the device won't seem to power on.
  1. Make sure that it is OFF.
  2. Press the Volume Up and Power button simultaneously and hold them for few seconds.
  3. When you see the logo appear, release the Power button (but keep holding the Volume Up button).
  4. Next you'll see a menu where you can use the Volume Up & Volume Down buttons to navigate across. Check the option labeled as Wipe Data / Factory Reset using the Power button.

A hard reset is worth a try but it is unlikely to fix the problem, it sounds like a hardware issue.

Here are instructions for a hard reset
Make sure the tablet is OFF.
Press and hold the Volume Up and Power buttons at the same time.
When the Android starts to flash, release the buttons.
Then try to press different hardware buttons until you are given a list of options.

Note: If Volume Up and Power doesn't work, try Volume Down and Power.

Try to do a hard reset on the tablet. Since you cannot get to the menu options, you are going to have to do it through external keys. Here is how to do a hard reset using the external keys:


1. Turn tablet off. You may need to use two hands in this process to press and hold buttons properly.
2. Turn on the tablet with power button, wait a full 2 seconds from the time the tablet starts showing the manufacturer logo, then press and hold the down Volume key. (you should not hold down the power button after it turns on and logo appears)
3. "Android Recovery" will appear on top of screen if timing is done correctly. Release volume button. (if you continue to press volume down at that message, the message will cycle through "RSD, Fastboot, and back to Android Recovery. Make sure message states Android Recovery before you go to next step). If stuck at a RSD protocol or Fast boot screen, reboot the tablet by holding power button then pressing the volume up)
4. While screen states "Android Recovery", Press volume up button, the screen will say "Entering Android recovery mode" and a few seconds later an Android robot graphic will appear alone on the screen. Release buttons
5. Hold down power button and then press the volume up key together to see the Android Recovery screen menu selections
6. Use the volume buttons to move up and down through selection in this menu
7. Using the volume down button, scroll down to "Wipe data/factory reset"
8. Tap Power hard key to select option
9. Scroll down to select "Yes, delete all user data"
10. Tap the power button to select. Wiping and formatting data will take a few minutes.
11. You will return back to the Android recovery screen menu.
12. Tap the Power button to "Reboot system now" which will power-cycle tablet and eventually power back on to the Initial Set-up / Welcome screen present when you first turned on your tablet.

First, Turn your device off.
Now, press and hold the down volume button, while holding down the button, press the power button until the display turned on. then go to recovery by navigating up and down through the volume buttons.

Then quickly press the power button to confirm. And there, your device will start resetting to factory default.

Adb Drivers in windows for interfacing with the tablet or drivers within the tablet?

If its within the tablet you will need to shell su and have the device rooted - In other words you will need to be technically savvy and good with linux command line!
