I cannot remember the password for my Asus Transformer 101…

Customer Question
I cannot remember the...

I cannot remember the password ***** my Asus Transformer 101 tablet that I've owned since 2010. How can I get it back. I don't care if I loose any data or photos etc...

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Asus ; MODEL TF 101. I purchased it fall of 2010.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I haven't used it in over a year so I can't remember my password. My husband had it but he can't remember it either. I tried holding the volumn+ button and the power button to reset the factory settings but it would not power on

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Android Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks; I just want to re-set this old tablet to factory settings so I can re-set a password.
