20 Most Recent HP iPAQ 111 Classic Pocket PC Questions & Answers

Are you using the factory adaptor to charge the device? The reason I ask is that some aftermarket chargers don't have the required amperage output on the USB port to charge some devices. If you are using an aftermarket charger, try purchasing one from HP directly or look for a charger with a USB port power rating of 4-5 amp. They can be purchased on eBay or Amazon for around $10.

Soft reset Perform a soft reset
A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any programs or saved data.

NOTE: Be sure to close all running applications before performing a soft reset.

To perform a soft reset:

1. Locate the recessed Reset button on the HP iPAQ.
2. Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button.

Hard reset
To perform a hard reset and return the HP iPAQ to factory settings:

Press Win + OK + Record together.
While doing that, press reset button and hold for 3-4 seconds.
Release reset.
Release buttons.

NOTE: Do not release the buttons until CLEAN REBOOT appears on the screen.

Remove the RAM access panel, you will see your ram chips and above these is the wlan controller and directly beside it a small black chip that says Nvidia. This is your graphics chip. We want to leave these COMPLETELY exposed at all times (you might as well get used to just not having the panel on for this fix).

From a cold start (i.e. the computer is completely off and unpowered) boot once, wait about 5-10 seconds. This will allow the motherboard to build up some heat... If you touch your graphics chipset you will notice it's started to warm up. Now go ahead and power the computer down, it's not going to boot on this attempt, but we got the solder warm.

Again power the computer on, and wait a few seconds. This time you should hear your fan magically kick on (assuming the fan is still working, as it is in mine). AFTER, and only after you hear the fan rev up to full speed, begin applying FIRM pressure with your index finger to the gpu (the black chip that says nvidia). Just wait a few seconds and voila, your HP POST screen magically appears.

I've had to do this with this laptop for nearly 2 years now. It never takes more than one to two tries to get it to start up. A word of warning: Do NOT close the screen, you only have about a 5% chance of it actually coming back on when you open it back up.

I'm aware this is a "quick and dirty" fix. If you have the patience and the cash you should just send it in to HP and have them fix it for you. If you have the skill, you should reflow the chip to the motherboard and fix the problem yourself.

If you're like me and you're lazy and broke, this fix will do the trick for the rest of the laptop's lifetime. :)

Have you tried resetting your iPAQ? You do that by pushing the little button on the side with the stylus. The screen will go blank for a bit, and then windows will restart. I had bought mine used, and when I got it, I had the same problem in that I never got the screen that let me select the wireless network. It fixed mine. Once it is working again, try selecting "View WLAN Networks" again, and you will see a list of networks that it can hear. If the SSID Brodcast is enabled on your wireless access point, you will see your network there. If SSID is not enabled on your WAP, you will need to type in the name of your network before it will find it.

Hope this helps. Sorry it was so late in being posted.

If you haven't already done so, try to uninstall and reinstall WMDC on your PC. Reset both your PC and PDA, and try again.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

I did not know that I needed to do a soft reboot on the PCC. Once that happened, everything loaded at once. I don't know where it came from, but it all loaded.
