    reset just resets things to how they are out of the box (theoretically) in terms of factory settings for apps, etc. Tab Recovery basically wipes the tablet clean and reinstalls everything on it. this is in case you have deleted things you shouldn't have, or something has gotten corrupted.

    Hope that helps!

    Ahh...well...each tab is subtly different in how these are done. It is some combination between power on, volume up or volume down and perhaps the home button. Doing it wrong can have some unforseen results, such as going into APX mode on a gTablet if not done correctly. I do not have one of these so I can't help here. Hopefully someone else can.

    If your tablet fails to respond when buttons are pressed or when the screen is tapped, you may have to perform a hardware reset on the tablet to restore functionality. To do this, simply use a small, thin object, such as a paperclip, to press the recessed reset button located on the bottom of the tablet. Acer Support - Answers, E-Mail, Chat - How do I reset the hardware and software to factory defaults on the Acer Iconia Tab A500? There is another method to reset it, but you'd have to call into technical support to get those instructions.
