If it is asking for the apple id and password, you will need to go to https://iforgot.apple.com/password/verify/appleid 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.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
