password doesn't work

How can you reset your password when the one you thought you put in is not working.  I have held the power/home/volume down buttons and it says rebooting but it doesn't do anything.  Can anyone help?

Re: password doesn't work

If your device is asking for the Google PW.Visit online and reset  Google pw and try  it on your device and if that step doesn’t work. Try these steps to reset the phone(LG Optimus).Reset will erase all info  from your device.


a.REMOVE AND RE-INSERT THE BATTERY

b.PRESS AND HOLD THE HOME AND VOLUME DOWN KEY, SHORTLY FOLLOWED BY HOLDING  THE POWER BUTTON UNTIL THE BOOT SCREEN APPEARS

c.SELECT FACTORY RESET/WIPE DATA BY SCROLLING DOWN USING THE VOLUME DOWN KEY AND PRESSING THE MENU KEY

d. THEN ONCE AGAIN SELECT DELETE ALL USER DATA BY PRESSING THE MENU KEY
