    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    There's another kind of reset which could help, and she won't lose the pictures on her iPad, if it works: press and hold Home and Power button at the same time until the Apple logo appears.
    Also, she should make sure her iPad has enough charge to turn on. She should let it charge for at least 20 minutes, then try to turn on her device.

    These are things she can do without a pc. Everything else has to be done connected to a computer, and she would perhaps lose her pictures.
    Btw: the iPad is meant to sync with just one computer at a time, so if she tries to use another pc to fix her problem, it could be that this won't work.

    thanks for your reply,i have told to try that already and didn't work,but we have found there is an apple store near where she works so I told her to take it there as she has no pc to reboot it through iTunes,thanks anyway

    You're welcome. Too bad my suggestions didn't work.
