It was working fine. Then I installed the new version of PDA Windows (whatever the last one was...). After a week it had trouble booting, and I would have to turn it off and do it again. THEN it won't finish booting at all.
*On the first screen when it turns on with the "Dell" logo, the "load bar" goes all the way to like 90% and then stops. I've hard reset it several times and nothing, it just keeps doing the same thing. It will never boot/load windows and so I can't do anything.... PLEASE HELP!
Since it gets to the 90% boot phase, you should be able to synce with the computer at that point. If so, then downgrade to pocket pc 2003 software which you can find at
Once done, make sure your pda will boot. If effective, re-install windows mobile 5.0 and try it again!
(Last attempt b4 contacting manufacturer...)
I had simmilar problem with this on my pda at one time too. Sometimes it is as easy as removing the battery, pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds, then putting everything back in and reboot it.

Royal Extreme 7 will not sync properly. It gets to Deleteing records and locks up. Both the software and the PDA is then locked into the sync mode. I have installed newer drivers as instructed by Tech support. (MwNTXP.inf & rylm100.sys Files) These files are listed under PDO Desktop>Drivers>WinNY2KXP. I am using Windows XP Media Center Edition.
When the software that lets your computer communicate with your PDA acts up, always check the cables and connections first. Is the USB (Universal Serial Bus) or serial cable connected securely to the PDA (or cradle) and the PC? Is the PDA seated properly in its cradle if it uses one? If everything is in place, visit the palmOne (www.palmone.com/us/support/downloads) or Windows Mobile (www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile) Web site and download the latest version of the HotSync or ActiveSync software that is compatible with your PDA and your computer's OS. Keeping synchronization software up-to-date is important because newer versions fix compatibility problems and usually add new features.
If you have a Palm OS PDA that uses a USB connection, sometimes incompatibilities exist between Windows and the software that you can resolve only by running a special USB utility found at the PalmOne download site mentioned previously. Select your hardware from the drop-down list and click the USB Registry Utility link. Download the USBRegClean.exe file, navigate to the downloaded file, and double-click the icon to install it. Reboot your computer and reinstall the Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager.
The operating systems on PDAs are different from the normal PC ones. The operating system is stored in the ROM of your PDA, and when you do a hard reset to your PDA, the windows is reinstalled from your ROM. And if there is no ROM upgrade for that particular device by directly from it's brand (sadly there is no ROM upgrade to any other version of windows for that device), you cannot upgrade your device's windows version. There is something called "Cooked ROMs" in the internet containing newer versions of windows, but they are illegal and risky. Anyway, your PDA is designed for that version of windows, including hardware, and newer versions of windows may not work correctly or completely slow down your PDA.
Normally for when you connect any device to pc using USB port, windows detects it. Sometime it may take time.
Few initial things you may check....
1) You must have your PDA in ON condition
2) If PDA is not getting connected on port, try connecting to other USB port (assuming that pc normally have more than one USB port)
3) Make sure the cable that you are using between PDA to PC is working properly (normally you can check this by using other cable)
4) If you have intalled some anti virus program on your pc then check the settings of same.
5) last but not least check the settings of window's firewall (part of OS)
If everything of above is fine then either USB ports of pc or of PDA might not be working.
I'm sorry to say but this looks like a corrupted ROM issue. The ROM memory stores your operating system and some parts of the firmware. If it becomes corrupted (various reasons) the PDA can't boot up the operating system, resulting in the strage situation you are experiencing. You can't connect it via active sync because it can't be detected as it can't boot anymore. It is very weird that this occured because of running an oficial upgrade. This leads me to suspect that there is something phisically rong with the wi-fi module on the pda's mainboard. You will need to take it to a service center to have it examined first. They will also put a specially made bootable sd card to reinstall the operating system is a way similar with computer windows instalation by booting from a cd. Most logically the wi-fi module has a problem and when trying to acces it by rewriting it's firmware (part of ROM) this resulted in the corruption of some ROM sectors.
I'm sorry that this isn't a do-it-yourself type of fix, but it would be safest to ask a service center to examine your PDA's mainboard.
It should if you have USB on the W95 machine. ActiveSync is compatable with W95. It worked for me with Outlook 98 on a Win95 laptop synching to a PC2000 PDA (Jornada), however I was using a serial cable.
