Hi my name is***** me take a look at your original question so I don’t miss any details.

If it is asking for the apple id and password, you will need to go to on another device or computer and enter your apple id, then continue as it will give you options to reset your password.

Once that is done you can enter the apple id and password ***** the ipad. If you do not know the apple id as well, you can go to the same site as mentioned above and click the "forgot apple id" at teh bottom of that page.
