I installed Google play in my HCL ME V1 tablet. It was working fine, when i restarted the tablet, my pattern unlock type changes to swipe screen unlock, and when I swipe it to unlock the screen the lock fades away and does not unlock.

What can I do to solve this issue?

This could be because the launcher may not be functioning. Try clearing the cache, and if that doesn't work, try installing a new launcher. Gapps may replace your launcher with the Google Experience Launcher, which might be incompatible with your device. – georgeunix Jul 30 '15 at 18:13

The only known solution is to hard reset....

  1. Start the tab with Volume Up button Home button pressed...
  2. Select "Hard format" from the menu (Be careful while doing this)

(Note:It will delete all apps,contacts &restore it to initial stage)

"Hard Reset" means "take out the battery to shut down the device". "Hard format" also is unlikely what you mean (it's rather a "factory reset" according to your description). Sock ROMs AFAIK don't offer format options :) – Izzy Apr 8 '13 at 9:03
