HTC Touch Hard Reset





Hard Reset

You can also perform a hard reset (also known as a full reset). A hard reset should be performed only if a normal reset does not solve a system problem. After a hard reset, the device is restored to its default settings - the way it was when you first purchased it and turned it on. Any programs you installed, data you entered, and settings you customized on your device will be lost. Only Windows MobileĀ® software and other pre-installed programs will remain.

To perform a hard reset

  1. Press and hold the TALK and END buttons, and at the same time, use the stylus to press the RESET button at the bottom of your device.
  2. Release the stylus, but continue pressing the TALK and END buttons until you see the following message on the screen:


3. Release the TALK and END buttons, and then press ENTER on
your device.

Warning! Your device will be set back to factory default settings. Please ensure any additional installed programs and/or user data have been backed up before a hard reset is performed.

I hope that helps.

If a normal reset does not solve a system problem, you can perform a hard (full) reset.
