    In the first instance tap the Settings icon then General then Software Update. This should give you the option to update. Let us know the result. If no go, other solutions may apply. And welcome to the forum!

    Hi nayyar, when you do as Andrew suggest what message do you get? See below do you get this? If so you are already using the latest OS and you have other problems. Let us know please.

    Which iOS version is your iPad currently on? The software update section in settings didn't appear until iOS 5. Before that all updates had to be initiated from iTunes on the computer, while the iPad was connected to the computer with the docking cable.

    OK, try this now Nayyar, and don't worry, it does not harm your iPad in any way. It's just a way of resetting and tidying your iPad's memory.
    Press the On/Off button and Home button at the same time and the screen will turn black. Keep holding patiently until the white Apple logo appears. Let both buttons go and again wait until the home screen appears. Then slide the On button. Now try operating your iPad again. Any good?
    Regards, Andrew
