Re: I have a hp ipaq hx2190 will not turn on

Try this link -

To do a hard reset, you can refer to this PDF file
On the second page is the reset button.

It didn't say how to do one, but for other palms you hold down the battery and then press (poke quickly) the reset button. While holding the power, the palm screen should come up, then let go of the power and it should ask you to "erase all data?".

Thanks!! I've tried with a Alcaline battery 9V+ aluminium wire (I didn't want to...

Your battery has been depleted past a chargable state.  This is a due to a bad design in the phone that doesn't monitor the battery power state well enough.  It actually allows the battery to be taken under the minimum amount needed to recharge the battery. 

You can fix this, but do so at your own risk.

You can simply purchase a new battery, that will work, just been sure not to let it deplete the battery totally anymore.

Now, on to the fix

-Take out the battery.
-Get any usb cable you can find sitting around. (any usb wire will do, an old printer cable, anything with a usb end that can plug into your computer)
-cut one end of the plug off. You need to leave the side on that connects to your computer. Cut off the side that plugs into a device (printer, camera, web cam, etc)
-Strip the rubber off the wire and expose the wires inside.
-Separate the wires from each other. You will only be using the BLACK and RED wires.
-strip the very end of the black and red wires carefully using a wire cutter exposing the metal wire inside the red and black covering.
-Plug in your home made battery charger to your computer. Careful not to touch any exposed metal, as it will give you a small shock.

-now carefully hold the black wire to the negative terminal on the battery (it should be noted with a black circle with a - in the middle). Then touch the red wire to the positive terminal (it will be noted with a red circle with a + in the middle).

Hold the 2 wires there for 20 seconds. Then quickly plug the battery back into the phone, and then plug it into a regular charger. Give it little bit of time, if you've done everything correctly the charge light should come on.

I had to repeat the last step again to get the light to turn on indicating it was charging.

You must not hold the wires to the battery for too long, 20 seconds should do it. You can overload a battery with this trick and actually make it explode if you hold it there too long. You are well within the few minutes needed to detonate the battery due to overcharging by sticking very strictly to 20 seconds.

Just be careful and you'll be fine.

One you get a charge light give it a few minutes in the off position, then try powering up the device and keep it plugged in until you get 100% charge.

Good luck,

USB connection to PC problems

You must have ActiveSync installed and running on your WinXP PC, for a WM device to be allowed to synchronize its data. Just in case your PC happens to be missing it, you can download it from this location.
Hope it works for you.
Cheers! Carlos

Delete icons in programs that have already been uninstalled.

You can open the "File Explorer" from start menu, navigate through "My Device" -> "Windows" -> "Start Menu" -> "Programs" and when you get there, you can delete the unwanted icons.

This is a VERY general question. There are many many software upgrades for the ipaq rx3715.

If you mean upgrading the OS, then nothing short of Linux is available.

Otherwise, please ask a more specific question.
