Question about Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC

Open Question

Menus scroll by themselves

I just purchased a used x30 and in working with it I've discovered that after a few minutes of navigating around, the menus will start to rapidly scroll through their options and the PDA will stop responding to anything I do. For example, if I hit today's date on the calendar, it will bring up today but will then immediately scroll through subsequent dates (it only takes about a minute or so to get up to 2010...). Or if I hit the start menu, it will highlight one menu option after the other, top to bottom then back to the top.

The only way to get it to stop is to turn the power off, but eventually it happens again next time I use it. Is there a way to permanently fix this?

SOURCE: Touch screen not responding correctly

The Axim touch screen is extremely sensitive to the placement of the protecting plastic sheet. Check that the the plastic sheet is oriented correctly - the small bended corners must bend downwards. If that wasn't the problem then remove the protection sheet and pick gently directly on the screen with the stylus to see if you get a response. Most often this is due to a problem with the screen protecting plastic sheet.

SOURCE: PDA clock and appointments change at sync by one hour

I am running vista and havent had this problem, as a matter of fact if you have vista you no longer need activesync. Vista comes with a built in software application to sync you PDA, there si no logical solution i can think of that would cause this problem other than your computer may need to be updated, and also vista will update all the drivers for the dell x30 as well, just make sure it is able to do all updates, not just microsoft ones.
hope this works for you!

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.
