    It has mainly only been used for reading books on. I think possibly my mother never installed any updates. Can anyone help me get this rebooted and to the home screen so I can use it again!!? I tried to power + home key, I have tried the power + home Plus volume, I have tried power + volume! I have even hit the reset button on the tablet and can get nowhere!

    Not sure? When I start it up, it stays on that screen. It says "Android World" then below that it say "Android 2.3" my mother bought it 3 years ago and doesn't know where any of the paperwork for the box is.

    That's going to be tough. It's presumably some no-name or off-brand device, so the chance of hardware or firmware failure is higher. Try powering off, then see if you can boot into Recovery Mode by pressing and holding Power, Vol Up, and Vol Down together until hopefully a Recovery Menu appears.
