Question about HP iPAQ HX2490 Pocket PC
I want to perform a hard reset but have no success using the reccommended procedure of holding in the calendar and iTASK buttons while pressing the reset button for 2 seconds. (It just gives a soft reset)Is there some other way to do it that works?
If all else fails, remove battery from unit & let completely run down
(usually 12-24 hours), possibly longer.
Pop on charger, & unit should turn on as if hard reset

Remember that you must hold down the two buttoms at the same time then push in the reset for 2 sec (holding it in). release the 2 buttoms then remove the stylus for the reset port. after about 4 sec press & release the reset buttom again, sytem will pwr up. If this doesn't resolve the issue then try the clean reset but bear in mind u will loss any thing u installed on the ipaq as system go to default setting and u will be required to align the screen. good luck
