Contact the previous user and get the pattern. The previous user should have set it back to factory settings.

tiny reset hole/button at the back part of your tablet?

Use a paperclip and press and hold it for about 10-15 seconds.

hi I have no wish to break any rules guys this is a genuine request having brought the tablet from an ebay seller who had a batch of tablets with faulty chargers got round that as they charge from a pc but i would like to reload the operating system and cant get into the android menu to do so. cant get hold of the original owner to do the patten unlock so a re installation is the only option. If I use the reset button will that bring up the android menu ? the tablet has only an on of vol up and down as buttons the rest are touch screen ones, would it be possible to boot it with an sd card. just dont know what to do here.

Suggest that you try to return it and get a refund.
