What's your full tablet model?

You may try following this guide on a fix that may work for you, because unfortunately your last resort would be completely wiping the current ROM by flashing another one, but first we should try possible workaround for the issue before proceeding to the last solution.

[Solution] Device was reset. Sign in with Google Account that was Previously Synced

It's advised for everyone who's going to reset their Android, if you don't remember your gmail then you first have to delete any google account from your Android before wiping it.

It is called FRP (Factory Reset Protection). I read somewhere that there are some methods available for removing FRP without flashing ROM.
