The Asus Memo Pad HD7 is a dual-core Android tablet released in September 2012. It features a 7-inch touch screen with a resolution of 800×1280. If you own this tablet, it’s likely that over time the processing time for most tasks will increase, slowly consuming more resources until the tablet becomes very difficult to use. In this case, you can often solve the problem by performing a hard reset. You can reset the Asus Memo to factory settings in a few quick steps, but before moving further there are a few things you probably want to know.
The Asus Memo Pad HD7 comes with a modest dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM in both 16 GB and 32 GB configurations, without the option for extra storage via MicroSD card slot. Extra storage can be made available, however, through a wireless connection and a subscription to any cloud service.
This will become very important as you prepare for the hard reset because the procedure will erase all of your personal information from the device and re-install the operating system. If you do not have a cloud service activated, you can make a backup through USB. Either way you choose, it’s absolutely necessary if you don’t to lose your personal data.
There is one method available for resetting the Asus Memo to its factory settings. Through Android’s boot-up recovery mode, it is possible to erase all of your personal data and re-install Android as if it were a new device.
Once this is done, any software errors that may have accumulated on your system will have been erased, along with everything else. If you have your backup prepared, then you are ready to begin the process:
- With the tablet off, push and hold the Power & Volume Down keys (for some terminals this works with the Volume Up button instead).
- A small menu will appear. Select the second option, “Recovery Mode”.
- Select Wipe Data/Factory Reset from the available options.
- Enter Yes to confirm and let the device initialize.
When the Asus is finished, you will have a like-new Memo on your hands. You can restore your backup through the same Recovery mode, through USB, or through the cloud depending on where you decided to save your backup information.
