Dell axim 30 running slow

I have no extra programs installed and have never used it for the internet; when I went to use it today it just started running slowly, especially when I touch the window icon in the upper left hand corner. I have had it for 4 years. Can it be saved?

Did you try a reset/reboot? It should help if a program has glitched and seems to be off, but is still on in the background using up CPU cycles, happened to be once before..

If that doesn't help, do a hard reset (should be on the manual/dell's support section of their site), but you should backup your contacts/files first as it will delete all files/settings!

How do you install downloaded programs on the Dell Axim X30?

Downloaded programs can be installed onto the Dell Axim X30 using Microsoft ActiveSync. Microsoft ActiveSync can be installed onto your computer using the Dell Companion CD which came with your Axim X30.
Once Microsoft ActiveSync is set up on your computer, if the program you downloaded came in an installer file, then double-clicking on the file will start the installation wizard and the software will be automatically transferred to the Axim.
If the program you downloaded did not come as an installer file, then double-clicking it will bring up an error message. In that case, use ActiveSync Explore to copy the program file to the Program Files folder on your Axim.

3. Insert CR-ROM which ships with the SDIO card in your computer.

If you are using Windows XP, you can download Acivesync 4.5 from Microsoft's website, and by this software you can connect your PDA to your laptop (You'll need Windows Mobile Device Center if you're using Windows Vista).
Note: Most probably you won't need the PDA's CD, when XP detects the USB device, if it asks for, point it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft ActiveSync\Drivers and it should install perfectly. But normally Both XP and Vista can recognize Dell Axim PDAs.

Dell axim x30

HI You have two ways: 1) Install the ActiveSync (Version 4.2 is recommended) PC Software with your PC first Next, you connect your Axim to your PC. Then you install the software or game into your PC. it will also install into your Axim automatically thru Sync process. 2) Or install the software or games into your External SD Memory card thru USB SD Card reader. Then put your sd memory card into your Axim and run the software or game. The 2GB or 4GB SD Card is reccommended since the game or software sometime is huge. I hope it is help. Regards, pingping

Can't run software on dell computer

This sounds like an issue with your desktop. Something has got corrupted maybe. Try going to the cd driectly to install a program. It only needs internet explorer when it runs the menu for the cd. It can all be installed by finding the setup for the particualr program your installing. Might need to reinstall internet explorer on your desktop and if that doesn't help, I hate to say it but might need to reinstall windows on it. Are you using ME or XP? I had many problems with kernel32.dll errors with ME but have not had any problems at all with XP. Only way I ever fixed those errors with ME was to reinstall. ME was the least stable version of windows.
