    You will need to use iTunes to restore the iPad to factory settings. Assuming it is running iOS7 you will need to supply your AppleID password as part of the restoration process.

    If you have a backup, either on your computer or in the cloud, you will be able to restore from the backup. Obviously, you will want to use a backup that was generated before the password was changed.

    Once it has been restored, you will be good to go.

    I've moved this over to the iPad Help section where, hopefully, more members will see it and be able to help.

    If you forgot the passcode (the code you use to unlock your iPad after it was "sleeping"), this is what has to be done: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1212

    If you forgot the password of your Apple ID, go to appleid.apple.com, and follow these instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5787

    If you set up restrictions and don't know this password, you'll have to restore your iPad to factory settings: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1414
