Hello Jesslocko,
Before following the iPad Restore process make sure you have updated version of iTunes installed on your computer, to check that Open iTunes on your computer click on Help and then check for updates ( If there is any updates available then Install it ) and If you do not have iTunes Installed or if you want to directly update the version of your iTunes then Download and Install iTunes from here : http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
1. Make sure your device (iPad) is unplugged (Disconnected) from your computer (this should be the computer that you use to sync your iPad or you can use any other computer with iTunes installed in it). You can leave the USB cable connected to your iPad though.
2. Turn off your iPad. Press and hold the power button on the top edge until a slider appears. Slide it from left to right to power off your device. If the slider doesn't appear (because your iOS device has frozen up) then hold the power and Home buttons down until the iPhone or iPad turns off.
3. Ensure your device has a decent amount of charge. Leave it plugged in to the mains for 10 minutes or so if you see the flat battery icon. (iPad low battery)
4. Hold down the Home button (the round button at the bottom of your iPad screen) and connect the other end of USB cable to the computer this should cause your iPhone or iPad to turn on. Keep holding the Home button until you see the iTunes and USB cable images on your iPad screen, then release the button.(iPad recovery mode)
5. In iTunes (launch the application if it isn't running on your Computer), you should see a message saying an iPad has been found in recovery mode.
6. Click OK and then click on Restore to bring your iPad to Factory settings

    Hold down on the sleep button and the home button at the same time for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears on the screen. Ignore the red slider. When the logo appears let go of the buttons.

  • New iPad mini is not recognized by my Mac.  Is asking for an iTunes update to 10.7, but Mac says system is up to date at the iTunes version we have.  iPad mini just not recognized without the updated iTunes,  HELP

    The kids have 3 new iPad minis for Xmas, but our Mac will not recognize the devices when we connect the minis to it.  The Mac/iPad says it needs a newer version of iTunes, but the Mac says that it has the latest version of iTunes. The kids can't transfer their music, books, photos, etc from the Mac, where everything is centrally stored, to their new minis. :(. Can any one help?

    What itunes version do you have?
    What Mac OS version do you have?
    From the ipad mini box and web page:
    Apple ID (required for some features)
    Internet access6
    Syncing with iTunes on a Mac or PC requires:
    Mac: OS X v10.6.8 or later
    PC: Windows 7; Windows Vista; or Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later
    Download iTunes at "www.itunes.com/download

  • IPad Mini completely ran out of battery and now wont turn on at all, even after being on charge for a number of hours. What can I do?

    My iPad mini ran out of battery yesterday and now won't turn on at all. How do I resolve this?

    When the battery goes flat it can 15 to 20 minutes of charging to then be able to get a response from it, but if you've charged it for longer than that they it should have picked up some charge. Have you got a different charger or cable that you could try just in case there is a problem with either of those - an iPhone or iPod charger will work with the iPad, but as they are lower power will take longer.

  • My mic for my iPhone 4S only works on speaker phone and doesn't work for Siri. What can I do?

    My mic on my 4s only works on speaker phone in calls. It also doesn't work for Siri or voice memos. Is there any way to fix this without having to buy new parts or exchange it?

    Hello there, mbrda92.
    The following Knowledge Base article provides some great, in-depth steps for troubleshooting your issue:
    iPhone: Hardware troubleshooting
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2802
    Particularly of note:
    Will not turn on, will not turn on unless connected to power, or unexpected power off
    Verify that the Sleep/Wake button functions. If it does not function, inspect it for signs of damage. If the button is damaged or is not functioning when pressed, seek service.
    Check if a Liquid Contact Indicator (LCI) is activated or there are signs of corrosion. Learn about LCIsand corrosion.
    Connect the iPhone to the iPhone's USB power adapter and let it charge for at least ten minutes.
    After at least 30 minutes, if:
    The home screen appears: The iPhone should be working. Update to the latest version of iOS if necessary. Continue charging it until it is completely charged and you see this battery icon in the upper-right corner of the screen . Then unplug the phone from power. If it immediately turns off, seek service.
    The low-battery image appears, even after the phone has charged for at least 20 minutes: See "iPhone displays the low-battery image and is unresponsive" symptom in this article.
    Something other than the Home screen or Low Battery image appears, continue with this article for further troubleshooting steps.
    If the iPhone did not turn on, reset it while connected to the iPhone USB power adapter.
    If the display turns on, go to step 4.
    If the display remains black, go to next step.
    Connect the iPhone to a computer and open iTunes. If iTunes recognizes the iPhone and indicates that it is in recovery mode, attempt to restore the iPhone. If the iPhone doesn't appear in iTunes or if you have difficulties in restoring the iPhone, see this article for further assistance.
    If restoring the iPhone resolved the issue, go to step 4. If restoring the iPhone did not solve the issue, seek service.
    Thanks for reaching out to Apple Support Communities.
    Cheers,
    Pedro.

    Reinstall OS X.
    Reinstall Snow Leopard without erasing the drive
    1. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions
    Boot from your Snow Leopard Installer disc. After the installer loads select your language and click on the Continue button. When the menu bar appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the installer.
    If DU reports errors it cannot fix, then you will need Disk Warrior and/or Tech Tool Pro to repair the drive. If you don't have either of them or if neither of them can fix the drive, then you will need to reformat the drive and reinstall OS X.
    2. Reinstall Snow Leopard
    If the drive is OK then quit DU and return to the installer.  Proceed with reinstalling OS X.  Note that the Snow Leopard installer will not erase your drive or disturb your files.  After installing a fresh copy of OS X the installer will move your Home folder, third-party applications, support items, and network preferences into the newly installed system.
    Download and install Mac OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo v1.1.
    Reinstalling Lion/Mountain Lion Without Erasing the Drive
    Boot to the Recovery HD: Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions: Upon startup select Disk Utility from the main menu. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions as follows.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the main menu.
    Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion: Select Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion and click on the Continue button.
    Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet if possible because it is three times faster than wireless.

  • HT4061 My Ipad2 has a message Ipad disabled  connect to itunes.  The trouble is I am out of the US now and cant connect to my my home mac or any computer it is synced with.  What can I do?  I cant even access the serial number to contact apple.  Help!

    Call Apple anyway. If the device was ever registered with then they will have the serial # on file and can look you up by other info such as your name or phone number.
    To re-enable an iPad any computer with iTunes should work. However, if your data was not backed up to iCloud you will not be able to access it until you get back to your home computer.

    We're users here.  Not Apple. 
    But a VERY bad idea to post a serial number on an internet forum.  You can bet someone has already used that serial number for malicious purposes.

  • When is the iPad mini 2 coming out ?

    When is the iPad mini 2 coming out ?

    No way to know. Apple has not announced anything about a Second Generation Mini at this time.  When they do you can bet it will be posted everywhere.
    Personally I'd wait for their customary media event in September, we'll likely hear about it then if its being planned at all.

  • I recently got a new computer and lost the email that contained my serial number.

    I recently got a new computer, my old computer had all my adobe products installed on it and was backed up to an external hard drive. Consequently, I don't have my serial number that was sent to me via email, because it was lost when I lost my other computer. Is there a way I can get one resent to me?

    Your serial number should be available online if you purchased from Adobe or if you purchased somewhere else and registered your product with Adobe. 
    Check the My Orders or My Products and Services areas that you can see after logging in to www.adobe.com and hovering over your name at the upper right:
