    iTunes will tell you that "your software is up to date".

    You can plug in your iPad to your PC or Mac, open iTunes and then hold in both buttons until the plug logo comes up then it will ask you to update. What you are doing is putting your iPad into Recovery mode. It will wipe the entire iPad and reload the OS. You can then restore from a back up or as new.
