Any Way to Reset?

I received a Venue 7 from a friend because she did not use it. She had forgotten the PIN number she set it up with and I can only get on a guest/restricted page. Does anyone know how to factory reset at this point? I have tried Droidboot but it only lets me reboot (at least that I was able to see).

Welcome to the Forum. These steps are kinda easy and should get you back to out of the box status.

  1. Turn the power off and pull the battery out for 5 minutes. Now reinsert it
  2. Hold the Volume Down button
  3. Press and hold the Power button until the device turns on
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to hard resent your Dell Venue
