Question about HP iPAQ HX2490 Pocket PC
I'm sorry but the only way to recover the device would be a hard reset. You will loose any user files on it and the device will revert to it's factory default state.
To do this there are 2 ways depending on your operating system. For a default stock hx2490 with wm 2003se :
press & hold power, press & hold calender, press & hold mail, press & hold reset small hole at base of unit. After the screen gets blank, your device should hard reset.
For an upgraded wm 5 device press power, calendar and mail buttons while inserting the stylus into the reset hole.
Both of these should yeld the same results. If you don't get the right button combination, try it again.
Hope this helps,
