    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    You haven't run out of battery charge have you?

    If not, do a reset of your iPad and this should fix it

    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you may see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It may take 20 to 30 seconds of holding these buttons in so be patient......your iPad should then start.

    The IPad Forum is a community of members from all walks of life and from all over the world coming together to share our experiences and to help each other learn about this wonderful piece of technology the Ipad.

    One possibility left would be to place your iPad into recovery mode and then restore it: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808
