    I tried to change my password and now it won't let me in with that or the old password. I tried doing a hard reset, even removed the battery and let it sit for two days -- still, when I put the battery back in and hook it to a charger, I get the password screen that won't recognize either one. How can I clear the memory and start again?

You can do a hard reset by doing the following...

01) Press and hold down the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
02) While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the "Reset" button/hole on the back of the iPAQ until the screen goes blank.
03) Release the "Calendar" and "iPAQ Wireless" buttons.
04) Press the "Reset" button/hole again (so that it resets/powers on.)

PDA will not perform any of my commands..its frozen

Hello, Tallman.

I'd suggest to perform a soft reset then a hard reset, if the soft reset doesn't work.

Then if necessary, as this may or may not be a simple solution, depending on your particular brand and model:

Remove the back of the PDA. Remove and reinsert the battery.

Hope this helps.

Problems with HP iPAQ rx1950 Pocket PC not connecting to wifi

make sure your wifi is on for both devices, laptop and device. try to temporarily disable windows firewall to see if that is whyat causing the problem.

Since other devices are connecting then it is most likely the PDA that has the problem.
Is your devices set to use 802.11g technology, what possible WI-FI settings do you have in your device.

Dropped PDA

First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.
