Won't boot past red screen, battery replaced

I have 2 3850's that won't boot past the red screen. I replaced the battery and it is still stuck on that screen. I can't turn it off either. Both of these pda's had the batteries die. Any ideas at all on how to bring them back to life?

    got the same red screen, pressed the soft reset button alone, it did nothing.



    Tried the solution you suggest - calendar and email buttons - and get screen with expired reminder messages, but it freezes there too.



    Trying the calendar and email buttons with soft reset button only takes me back to the red screen which also freezes.

Hey, when you say red screen does this mean it says compaq on it? If it does then you need to do as follows:
Press the two lower buttons (one is defult set to Calendar shortcut, the other to iTask) and the power button simultaneously while soft reseting the ipaq. It should start up. If not contact me, as I might of got the buttons wrong, at tyrant.12@hotmail.com
I hope it helps

    oops sorry not the Itask button but the 'mail' button above the iTask. I just tryed it out on my iPAQ H3850 Pocket PC and it works.

Hp pavilion dv9000 takes a long time to get past the bios screen. It won't boot of dvd either??


Check BIOS boot options and assign local hard drive as first for faster boot. This is also where you set CD\DVD as first to boot from disc. Look for F Key press on start up. It will be shown on screen. These can vary.

Many HP machines also have a boot menu option during boot. Again an F key and may vary.

My toshiba tablet won't let me go past the welcome screen


If this is under warranty take it back. If it isn't power the unit on with just the battery powering the unit. When you see the Windows splash screen drop the battery out after the screen goes black put the battery back in and press the power button. This should bring up the on screen menu telling you it failed to start or shut down correctly. Select, Boot in Safe Mode and see if the system will power on. If that fails you need to do a system restore. To access system restore options power the unit on and press and hold the F10 key, this will bring up the restore Windows options. From that menu select to restore your operating system. If that fails you will have to do a complete restore to factory default settings. If that fails you will have to replace the hard drive.
