Hi,
A hard reset basically wipes all information stored on the drive.
Download the software to flash it from here.

You push the wireless, power and reset buttons to get to the flashing menu.

Hope this helps

The Dell is unable to complete the startup, you may have a software issue, or a hardware problem, this might be fixable by reloading the rom / firmware / software into the pocket pc. If that doesn't solve the problem the last option is to send the device to dell repair service, I will have a look around and let you know if there is a software update available and if there is I will post you the instructions soon.

    what is the operating system currently installed on the PDA, 2003 se? Have you done any updates to the OS?

    This system update will reload the software
    http://support.dell.com/support/download...

    Download and run the exe file on your computer, it will extract the files.

    You will need to have Active sync 4.5 or newer installed.
    connect the device to the computer.

    go to the folder you extracted the files, and run the AximUpdate.exe

    If any problems come up, let me know.

  • Ekse Jan 14, 2009

    If you are unable to reload the software into the pda via usb, the update needs to be done on SD card, with the pda in bootloader mode.

    The rom is included in the exe file and is extracted into the folder you selected.

    what we need todo is to write the rom into a sdcard, we can't just copy it, it needs to be written into the sdcard with a special program. and then the pda needs to enter bootloader - program rom from sdcard.

    I will have to look into that again, as I don't own this model myself.


  • Ekse Jan 14, 2009

    what happens when you run the axim update? without the pda detected by active sync?

  • Ekse Jan 14, 2009

    Right now I need to know what version operating system was installed on the axim? 2003? 2003 se? wm5? wm6?

    Also note if we are unable to load a firmware into the device even on bootloader, then there is no other option but to send it to repair.

    Attempt to start in SD Bootloader mode by Pressing Wireless + Power + Reset.

    Does the Bootloader mode work? are you able to enter to it?

Hold the wifi button together with the power button.. than push the reset butten. Release the wifi and powerbutton and you're in the SD boot menu (when using the record button in stead of the wifi you'll enter maintenance mode)

If that doesn't work you can always reflash it. If you need to do that let me know and I will get you a guide and walk you through it

    Note: Pushing the wifi button, power button, and reset button is how you are able to flash with a new ROM or Firmware.

MY DELL DESKTOP WILL NOT REBOOT OR START


Try to replace the ROM. Also, try adding a new hard drive. See what happens.

Dell Inspiron 1440 notebook cannot start.


I have seen these symptoms before when the hard disk drive has failed. It will hand on the POST screen (The part with the DELL logo) for slightly longer than usual due to fault with the drive, after that it will attempt to boot and error from the hard disk so quickly you see nothing but the laptop appear to cut out. Although the hard disk is the most likely thing to be at fault these issues could potentially be caused by any one of the parts within you laptop being broken.

If you are fairly tech savvy try downloading this utility "Seatools" http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/seatools/ burn it to a bootable CD. Put the bootable CD in you DELL laptop and boot off it, by pressing F12 and selecting to boot from CD/DVD drive. Then run a "Long test" once this test is complete the software will advise you whether the hard disk is faulty or not.

If you are not confident in trying this I would recommend taking the laptop to be diagnosed by your local computer repair business.

Perform a Reset

Soft Reset
When you perform a soft reset, the device deletes any data that has not
been saved but saves any data that has been stored in memory. Try
performing a soft reset if the device does not respond when you tap the
display or press a button.
To perform a soft reset, use the stylus to press the reset button.

Hard Reset
NOTICE: When you perform a hard reset, you lose all the data stored on
your device.

Perform a hard reset if:
• You want to delete all the data stored on your device.
• You forget your password and need to clear it.
• Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have
already attempted a soft reset.
NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you
perform a hard reset. See ActiveSync Help on your computer for more
information.
To perform a hard reset:
1 Press and hold the power button.
2 With the stylus, hold the reset button for about 2 seconds.
3 Follow the instructions on the screen.
