HP Ipaq h1940 won't sync with Vista

Hi. While holding power button, and pressing reset will do a hard reset to your PDA (reset the device to its factory default settings). So if your PDA is working well, don't do it. As for the syncronization with your Vista PC; Winodws XP uses the ActiveSync software for syncronization, and for Windows Vista, Microsoft developed a brand new syncronization software called "Windows Mobile Device Center". It can be downloaded here: ( When you download/install this software to your PC, you should be able to connect your PDA to your PC without any problem, and definitely without changing any OS in your PDA or PC. Hope this helps.

Memory on HP ipaq 114.

there are two types of memory my friend

1. RAM
2. ROM both built in PDA

third type is Storage Card u can store music and photos there but u cannot merge it with RAM or ROM so pls try to understand this difference

secondly if u want me to help u out on this memory shortage

then u can reset the device i mean hard reset and re install ur applications by time ur ROM is occupied by some useless files and ur performance is de graded try to refresh ur OS
Hard reset
HP iPAQ Setup Assistant
Use HP iPAQ Setup Assistant to simplify configuring settings on your HP iPAQ.
HP iPAQ Setup Assistant lets you save the settings on your computer. This can help you restore configuration settings on your HP iPAQ at any time. HP iPAQ Setup Assistant also allows you to perform a factory reset on your HP iPAQ and view detailed product information.

To hard reset HP iPAQ 114:
- press and hold the 3 buttons Windows, OK and REC
- press the reset button for about 3-4 seconds and release it
- release the 3 buttons

u can see the video for that but it is in russian lang but self explanatory

third option is if u want to really get rid of this slow performance and shortage of space just get a clean CUSTOM ROM from for ur PDA strictly at ur OWN RISK

pls rate me fixya if i have fixed ur problem

How to instal english language pack

Just Google through the internet with the words "rx3715 language upgrade rom" and you will find several references to it.

At the end, you will find a couple of places where they have the lniks to access directly the HP/Compaq fttp sites, and download the ROM upgrade files in different language versions.

Also, in the web you will find a couple of sites that have the specific instructions and procedures to do it.

On purpose I am not giving you such sites and links because I have to warn you: such files and procedures work in 90% of the times. The catch is that such procedures forces the PDA to accept the new language rom, but in 10% of the times, such process is aborted with no apparent reason, and the PDA is converted in an useless PDA, but it is converted in a good looking paper weight or dead brick.

Bottom line, it's possible to change the language ROM (I did it a lot of times before: English, Spanish, Chinese, Italian and French), but it's risky, and it will damage permanently your PDA (such as I did in two of them).

Best regards,

Best regards,

Change language setting from Spanish to English

I have been unable to sort this out! I am not tech savvy...however, I understand I need to obtain a Windows 6 OS in English! I´ve checked online for freedownloads & have yet to find! So many purchasers have this problem...not realizing there isn´t a language change setting prior to purchase! I´ve spoken directly to HTC with the issue of this little advertising omission!!! They blame Microsoft!!! I intend to speak to a lawyer friend. I think it´s deceitful marketing to some degree!

BTW...HTC also justified the language setting omission issue, advising me my HTC Touch is not a smartphone...not even a´s a PDA! PDA´s according to them, do not have language change settings!!! Do note however, site does list the HTC Touch under Touch Phones in their Product window!!!

Thanks for the help! Happy Easter!

Changing the language

Hi, Pocket PC's have Windows OS installed on them. As with computers, you woun't find any option to change the language of the operating system. Your computer comes with english Windows, and however you try, it woun't be an option to change the language of the whole OS. It is the same with PDA's. But even harder than that, each PDA comes with a specific Windows, altrought it is the same version to other PDA's it has some specific things to each model. You can't install a Windows made for HP Ipaq to a Dell PDA because it will simply not work. Also, the language wich is skipped with a PDA is not to be changed. The producing company will consider this ilegal in some cases. I don't know why but they simply woun't want to change the language for you. However, there some triks to do that your self. To change a language means to change the whole operating system installed in the ROM memory. But like I said, the producers woun't simply allow that, and when you will try to install a diferent language ROM on the PDA it will give you some errors. I know of some ways to deal with this, but it works only for HP PDA's. It will be risky to try it on your own PDA. Also it is a fairly complicated process, involving hexazecimal editing and decompiling a ROM image. The simplest thing you can do is to go to a service center (other that viewsonic's one or major service facilities) and ask them to do that for you.
