You can turn off the tablet and turn it back on while connect to Computer. See if this will unlock your tablet.

If that does not work, please go to Google Play on your computer. Search for Screen Lock Bypass app. Hit Install button. Select your tablet on the list. Click Install button. This will push the app on your tablet.

On your tablet, you will see the app download and install. After the app is installed, turn off your tablet and turn it on. See if this will unlock your tablet.

how can i change my key code from settings in the tablet
Expert:  Nick H. replied 4 years ago.
Sorry for the delay.

To change the code, you can go to Settings->Security->Change screen lock.

If that does not work, you have to go to Settings->Account & Sync. Remove all the other accounts EXCEPT for Google account. Shutdown the tablet and select Unlock with your Google account again. This will prompt to change your passcode.
