My iPad says that it's disabled for 22,541,760 minutes. How do i fix it?

I've had my iPad for about 2 years but forgot that I had it. It's been turned off for a lot of months now, maybe a year. I just turned it on today and it says "iPad is disabled try again in 22,541,760 minutes". I have no idea what to do.

Try this: Make sure it's charged. Hold the home button and the sleep button down at the same time - until the unit shuts off and you see that Apple logo appear in the center of the screen. If it boots - click on the Settings app, look for General - Software Update - and see if you're running the latest operating system - update it you have to - as well as any apps (go to the App Store - Update). If that doesn't work, try plugging the iPad into a computer USB slot and open the latest version of iTunes - you can update the iOS on your iPad using iTunes - as well as restore the device - if none of this works - take the iPad to an Apple Store - get an estimate on any repair charges (assuming you don't have AppleCare).

Hook it up to your pc... And reset it by opening iTunes and find your device and click reset. And it should be brand new
