It did all the steps a couple of times and still not resetting
Network Technician: Viet - Network Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 2 years ago

I'm sorry. Can you try:

  1. Power off the tablet (press and hold power button and power off.)
  2. Press & hold the Volume Up button.
  3. While holding the Volume Up button, press & hold the Power button for 3 seconds, then release. Keep holding the Volume Up button.
  4. Once the tablet vibrates (it should vibrate soon), switch / slide the touchscreen lock switch on and off quickly and repeatedly while still holding the Volume Up button.
  5. Once the "Erasing Userdata..." message appears in the upper left corner, release the Volume Up button and stop switching the touchscreen lock switch
  6. Wait a bit and check.

- If that does still not work, can you please confirm your Acer tablet model?

Please let me know. Thank you for your patience.
