Question about HP iPAQ RX5915 Travel Companion GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Freezing at the "HP iPAQ Pocket PC start-up" and won't advance any further. (think that it pushed up against something in my bag, and perhaps maxed the memory?). Not at a point where ActiveSync can recognize it. Reset button restarts it, just freezes at the blue and white HP pocket PC screen - no other buttons will do anything. (Version is 1.00.04) Took the battery out and back in (only way to power it down right now), but it advances to that same point and freezes.

I had same problem. Finally got mine sorted!!

Try a full reset. Hold the quick launch button and the rotate screen button simultaneously (top and bottom of 4 buttons on left of device) and then use stylis to press in the reset button (on top edge just left of SD card slot). Keep depressed until it resets then release the 2 buttons and then release reset button.

It will appear to do the same but it tells you at the bottom it is doing a reboot or something. After 30 secs or so it then goes past and gets to the screen align screen.

You might loss settings but it worked for me

Hp ipaq 3715


Hopefully you can do a warranty repair, I'm pretty sure the main board is damaged since a hard reset should have taken you back to the factory defaults.

HP Ipaq 2910 wont finish the boot


Hey :), I'd be happy to help. I honestly don't think that you've physcially damaged your Ipaq, so you should probally hard reset your Ipaq. To do this you must hold down the reset button and the power button at the same time for like 5 seconds. This will get rid of data on your pocket pc, but It might solve your Ipaq's problem. Thanks! and I hope this helps, if it doesn't I'd recommend for you call Hp where they will repair it or give you a new one :)

Will not start up after recharging the battery


Hello :-) I think that your battery is causing the problem. You might have charged you ipaq to many times with a cheap battery and the battery might be completely dead. Or the battery might just be defective.

What's max mem size for ipaq 1950


Mem cards are added as storage cards and do not add up to your iPaq RAM.

You can use mem cards to add up space to install applications. (ie. it is something similar to installing a new Harddrive on your PC). However the physical RAM of your iPaq cannot be extended.

PocketPC programs have small RAM requirements so your PDA's built-in RAM will suffice.

As far as the maximum card size if I understood your question right, if your iPaq comes with Windows Mobile v5 or earlier, it supports SD cards up to 2GB and perhaps some non SDHC standard SD cards up to 4GB. If you can upgrade to WM6, then WM6 supports SDHC cards, so you can install >4GB cards.

Hope this helps.

HP iPAQ RZ1710 Pocket PC freezes on pin entry!!


If still freeze after the resets, then try to do a Hard Reset.
With this way you will restore your device at the default condition.
Take care to remove any external memory from iPAQ before to this and also have it
full charged.

The bad of this....you will loose everything stored at the internal memory of iPAQ.
The good this...your iPAQ would be alive again ;-)

To to a Hard Reset press at the same time the reset button+calendar button+today button.
