There is a separate "iTunes backup password" that you may have set in iTunes and it will be required to restore the devices.
Try entering your iTunes account password.

AT another 28.60 euros ?

Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.
A remote session could take an hour, perhaps more. It is a one-off fee that you pay to this website, and I am only paid a portion of it for my time.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

can i be sure you will fix the problems if i pay.
also how can i get into my computer when it wont accept the email addresses or passwords im now using a slow asus note book.

Expert:  Pete replied 2 years ago.
There is no absolute certainly, similar to if you had a technician visit you for a callout fee of 50 euro.
Are you saying you are unable to even log on to the computer's desktop?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i cant because the set up stops at the point i enter the email address and password.

Have you connected the iPad to the original computer that it was set up on with iTunes?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

it was set up in the apple shop in San Fransico and i no longer have the lap top that i used to back it up with.
