THE PROBLEMS FIRST STARTED ABOUT 5 MONTHS AGO IN SEPTEMBER 2020 DURING A FISHING TRIP WITH MY FATHER IN MAINE. ONE DAY WHILE I WAS RESTING IN BED WHILE MY DAD WAS OUT FISHING, I WENT TO GET MY TABLET OUT OF MY PACK, AND TRIED USING IT, BUT IT WAS IF THE TOUCH SCREEN HAD A MIND OF IT'S OWN. IT WASN'T RESPONDING TO MY TOUCH HALF OF THE TIME AND IT WAS MAKING RANDOM REACTIONS WITHOUT ME EVEN TOUCHING IT. AND IT STAYED LIKE THAT UNTIL FAIRLY RECENTLY. DUE TO MANY SLEEPLESS NIGHTS I SPENT 345 DOLLARS ON A SPECIAL STRESS RELIEVING MEDICAL DEVICE SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN TO GREATLY IMPROVE SLEEP AND FOCUS WHILE RELIEVING ANXIETY AND IRRITATION AND LEAVING YOU FEELING REFRESHED AFTER A GOOD NIGHT SLEEP. THERE WAS ONLY ONE SLIGHT CATCH. IT WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO IT'S JOB UNLESS I INSTALLED A SPECIAL APP ON MY WIRELESS, ELECTRONIC DEVICE. NOW UNLIKE MOST PEOPLE, AND I GOT TO TELL YOU I'M NO AVERAGE JOE, I DO NOT HAVE A CELL PHONE, JUST A COUPLE OF DESKTOP PC'S, A MEDIUM-SIZED LAPTOP COMPUTER WITH A SMALL CRACK IN THE CORNER AND A SAMSUNG TABLET THAT CLEARLY SEEMS TO HAVE SOME SORT OF GLITCH IN IT. SO I MANAGED TO INSTALL THE APP ON MY TABLET FROM MY LAPTOP BUT WITHOUT A FOOLPROOF WAY TO USE THE TABLET SMOOTHLY, AND FEELING KIND OF WARN DOWN TO THE POINT I FELT MYSELF GETTING A STOMACH BUG, I HAD MY FATHER BRING ME AND THE TABLET TO A LOCAL BEST BUY TO SEE WHAT THEY WOULD RECOMMEND. UNFORTUNATELY, THE GEEK SQUAD WASN'T ABLE TO DO MUCH REPAIRS WITH TABLETS AT THE MOMENT, AND SUGGESTED I DO A SYSTEM RESET. SO EVEN THOUGH MY HEAD FELT WARM, DIZZY AND MORE THAN A LITTLE DISTRACTED, I MANAGED TO DO A SYSTEM RESET ONLY TO COME HOME, SET EVERYTHING ON THE TABLET BACK UP AND FIND OUT THAT MY TABLET HAD CHANGED THE PASSWORD TO A 4 CHARACTER LONG SECRET PASSWORD AND THAT THEY DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO TELL ME IT HAD CHANGED OR WHAT THEY HAD CHANGE IT TO. I TRIED GETTING OUT OF MY MOTHERS  ACCOUNT  BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH THE TABLET IS MINE, IT WAS BOUGHT BY MY MOTHER AND SHE INITIALLY  SET IT UP WITH HER OWN ACCOUNT AND TRIED CREATING MY OWN SAMSUNG ACCOUNT ON MY LAPTOP  ONLY TO FIND THE TABLET STILL WOULDN'T ACCEPT THE PASSWORD I HAD GIVEN IT. AND I ONLY GOT 5 MORE TRIES BEFORE IT LOCKS DOWN COMPLETELY AND RESTARTS AND REBOOTS.
