We show you how to fix software problems on your Kindle Fire HD with a factory resetWhen Kindle Fire HD software problems crop up, one has to be prepared. They can ruin a good game or even kill productivity. Besides throwing your Kindle Fire HD out the windows or smashing it, the next best thing you can do to try to fix a software problem is a hard reset.
What exactly is a hardware reset you ask? It's a process that resets your Kindle Fire HD to factory settings. While there are a number of reasons you might want to reset your tablet, the main reason is really to fix issues. You also may want to reset it if you or selling it or giving it to someone.
