Boots up only to Blue Dell Screen on Axim 3

One of our Dell PocketPc Axim3 will only boot to the blue Dell screen and no further. It is out of warranty (one year) by 6 months so Dell is no help. We have reset is from the back. Removed battery, push reset and power at the same time? We are thinking about reloading the operation system? Is this possible and how? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Boots up only to Blue Dell Screen on Axim 3

When you hard reset by press power button then press the reset button, did you hold them for about 5 seconds? If hard reset does not work, then it's probably hardware problems

The device is stuck on the blue Dell screen.


Hi,
1. Remove the memory card and all the accessories connected to your device, If any.
2. Try powering up your device and there should be some hole in your device using which you can reset the device.
3. Find out the reset hole and press it using a needle like materials and by this way your problem may get solved.

Thanks

Axim 50/51 wont pass blue startup screen


There could be two possible problems with this device.

If you have to remove the unit to shutdown, then the ROM chip holding the information for the bootup of the unit may need to be replaced.

The other possible problem is that the battery consumption of the unit may be greater than what the battery is rated at.

Either way, it will have to go in for repair.

Blue screen with dell logo??


This is usually called the "Blue Screen of Death" and the system tries to dump memory

See if you can Read any of the text which may detail the error

Try starting it in safe mode by tapping F8 every few seconds during startup

If it starts post back and i'll tell you how to use system restore

If it still fails then call in an Engineer

Dell AXIM Screen


First, to dim/undim the screen, hold down the power button for a few seconds. A quick press will turn it on/off. Also, when dimmed, if you tap the screen, it should be fully lit. FYI...to change the brightness in either the plugged-in or battery mode, hold in the scroll dial on the left-hand side and press the navigation button (big round one on the front) either up (brighter) or down (dimmer). As for the time, tap Start >> Settings >> System (tab) >> Clock and see if your time is off by 12 hours.

Axim 5 upgrade path


Microsoft is well aware of the popularity of the iPAQ 3600 upgrades made available and that is one reason they mandated a Flash ROM with the new Pocket PC 2002 hardware. I am pretty sure MS will make an upgrade path available to the OEMs. It will then be up to Dell, Compaq and friends to make it available to the customer. Dell has always been good about that. As for the ROM size. The current Pocket PC 2002 image is 22MB. I have no idea how big the next one is or even when it will be out! Could be 2003 or 2004. MS has traditionally upgraded every 18 months or so on their PDA OS since 1998. IF that pattern holds true, 18 months from Oct 2001 would be spring 2003. We'll see. Ok, back to the ROM. Most Pocket PC 2002's have a 32MB ROM though a few have a 48. I think the 48 is primarliy to handle a big user file storage area in the ROM. I would be surprised if the next PPC increased more than 45% in size. It could though, but if I had to bet, though, I'd say 32MB would be plenty. Still - I'd look at the 48MB model for other reasons. 33% faster processor, 64MB RAM, included cradle.

Is the Axim compatible with IBM 1 Gig MicroDrive? As this is the only way to put full length feature film onto the PocketPC platform. I know that the Axim has a type II Flashcard slot but want to make...


The advanced Axim appears to work fine with the 1GB Microdrive. Just appears as a "CF Card". MP3's etc play fine from it with no noticeable problems.
