Re: Doesn't move past the initial screen even on reset
If soft AND hard resets do not work, you definitely have a major problem. Sometimes, there will be problems that cause frequent freezes in the boot process. These freezes, in my experience, though, have been random, and in different places in the boot process. Try constant hard resets (patience is key, as sometimes they take a long time to load) until you get to the main screen. If you cannot get there, I really don;t know what to tell you. If you do, even once, refer to

1.) Make sure battery is charged 2.) Locate
the rom you want to use 3.) Remove machine fro cradle 4.) Press the POWER + iTASK + CONTACTS + RESET buttons at the same time
so as to enter the FLASH Mode 5.) Make sure your USB connection to the Cradle is hooked-up. 6.) Place your PDA in the USB Cradle. 7.) Stop the MS ActiveSync session on your HOST PC: CTRL-ALT-DELETE >
TASK MANAGER > PROCESSES. 8.) Highlight WESCOMM.EXE and select "End Process" button. 9.) Run the file you downloaded from your Vendor in step 3. 10.) The PDA should now begin Flashing the iPAQ's ROM BIOS.
Hi. While holding power button, and pressing reset will do a hard reset to your PDA (reset the device to its factory default settings). So if your PDA is working well, don't do it. As for the syncronization with your Vista PC; Winodws XP uses the ActiveSync software for syncronization, and for Windows Vista, Microsoft developed a brand new syncronization software called "Windows Mobile Device Center". It can be downloaded here: (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/device-center-download.mspx). When you download/install this software to your PC, you should be able to connect your PDA to your PC without any problem, and definitely without changing any OS in your PDA or PC. Hope this helps.
That's a very odd scenario. Have you tried putting it on the cradle without the battery? One possibility is that it was an incorrect battery that you put into it and it somehow fried the PDA. That's however very unlikely. Have you tried putting your old battery in it?
You could try reinstalling WMP10. You can do this by going to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components. First you need to uncheck the bos to remove it, then go back in and recheck the box and it will be reinstalled.
It might be a hardware problem - if you get it both with the cradle and a sync cable, then it might be the connector at bottom of Ipaq. But I don't know for sure. If it's intermittent like this then it doesn't seem like a software problem.
