SOURCE: PDA doesn't want to start

I think perhaps the ROM chip didn't take the flash correctly, I think this unit is possibly beyond repair. It looks like it is still trying to finish the upgrade. have you tried the reset while the unit is conneced to the PC which has the update?

SOURCE: Compaq 3835 Fails to start after installing dashboard

Have you tried to remove the battery for a few moments? Hopefully if you try this, all your data was backed up, because removing the battery will lose your data. But, if the system is stuck at the "welcome" screen, then removing the battery wipes out the memory. The system will be just like right out of the box (unless you flashed the rom with an updated version of the Operating system, that won't roll back by just removing the battery).

If your not sure what I meant by flashing the rom, it is the upgrade process from windows 2002 to 2003 version. That is the only change that will not be lost by removing your battery.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: laptop boots then shuts automatically off

If you haven't tried it yet, pull the battery out and try booting from the adaptor only. If it boots normally, then your battery pack may be bad (shorted cell) or the regulator that has the job of charging and monitoring the battery pack while keeping your system running may not be healthy.
If you own any multimeter (at the cost of Chinese DMMs, everyone should own one), check the battery pack for charge. Under normal conditions, they should measure a couple of percent higher than their rating. You will have either Lithium Ion or Nickle metal hydride batteries in the pack so should measure some multiple of the nominal cell voltage of one of those types that are respectively 3.6 & 1.2 volts.

SOURCE: iPAQ 2795 freezes during boot up.

I had the same problem. Contacted HP customer service chat, and got the following answer that
solved the problem:
1. Remove the battery for 30 minutes.
2. Insert it again in the iPAQ.
3. Perform a clean reset on the iPAQ and at the same time charge the iPAQ.
To perform a clean reset please follow these steps:
Press and hold the Calendar button, the Power button, and the Messaging button.
While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ.

The problem can also be solved by getting a new battery, and performing the clean reset while charging (using the portable charger, not the cradle).

How to perform a hard reset in my laptop - Asus K52F?


When did you get this virus? have you tried booting into Safe Mode, then do a System Restore. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and select a restore point (date and time) before you started having the problem. System Restore does not cause you to lose any data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore date you selected).

To get to Safe Mode:
Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.

Cant get google maps to work


Hello, Altrough I am not experienced with this particular model you may try the following method. First back up all your data on the internal memory of your device.This will allow you to restore contacts, programs or other data after you perform a master reset. Save the backup file to a memory card or another external storage device. Then hard reset the pda, to restore it to the factory settings. After this is done, install the program (google maps) after the pda's initial setup (wich occurs after the hard reset). Now check to see if the program works. If not, the logical assumtion would be that the program wasn't clearly designed for this pda model. Please notice that altrough all these devices run Palm OS, the actual operating system is different in order to fit each model's hardware specification. So it isn't like windows xp for example, wich can run on any computer, regardless of it's manufacturer or hardware components. If the program fails to work after all of this, you can either wait to see if google comes up with a patch to the program or a newer version that includes your pda in the suported devices list. Meanwhile you should use the backup you just made to restore the device to it's previus state. Please come back with a reply if this fails to work. Good luck.

I have want to setup Windows xp and windows 7 together .Meaning when start up computer have : Windows xp Windows 7 I try to setup two windows ,but i setup windows xp lost windows 7 and setup windows 7...


Not sure what you have done so far. You need to divide your hard drive into two sections. Install XP first on to one section. Then use a program to manage your computer start up, the one I use is called Easy BCD this is a free program and works great. Once you cut your hard drive and install XP make a copy of your start up partition. Install the Easy BCD program and make a back up again. Then Install Win 7. Then on the Win7 side install the Easy BDC program and set up the menu choices. I run a 3 way boot with XP and Ubuntu. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Installing a hard drive on the eurovox ex5000 pvr stops it workin


if the hard drive is new and not formatted , there will be no operating system for the computer to go past the bios start up
what you will have to do is to get into the bios , select boot preference and select cd as first preference
load an operating system( example win 8) and let the unit boot from the disc
after that has properly installed ,shut down the unit , restart and get the bios back up and change boot preference to hard drive
from then on it should start and boot from the program on the hard drive

Toshiba satellite pro l40 boot up problem


If you run a repair with the recovery disc you won't lose any info. The only time you'll lose the info is if you run a complete reload. Run the system disc until it gets to the point of finding installed operating systems, at this point instead of deleting the partition, press R and it will reinstall the operating system files only leaving other installed files and programs intact. Keep in mind that many times when this happens, it's a hard drive failure. If it is a hard drive failure, then you will have to replace the hard drive and you will lose the info, sorry.

I'm lost already!


Sounds like your PDA is not communicating with the desktop software properly. (is it a refurbished unit?). I would recommend you un-install the desktop software completely, then do a hard reset on the unit. This should start you from scratch. Then, re-install the software and re-boot the TX and configure it, and try a brand new sync. If this doesn't help, you might have to return it. But first, try it with the desktop software on a DIFFERENT computer.

Good luck.
