Once you forget the Password, your only option is to perform a Hard Reset on the device and reset back to Factory defaults. You data will be lost, as this is in place to protect you in case the device has been lost or stolen. If you have backups, or sync the device with Outlook, you can run a restore or re-sync the device to populate the data back into your device.

Hard Reset
NOTICE: When you do a hard reset, you lose all the data stored in your device
Flash memory, and any programs that you installed on your device.
Do a hard reset if:

  • You want to restore the device to factory default settings.
  • You forget your password and need to reset it.
  • Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have already attempted a soft reset.
NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you do a hard reset.

To do a hard reset:
  1. Press the Power button to turn the Axim unit On.

I have tried and tried and cannot connect to the internet on my dell axim x51. Any solutions?


This depends entirely on how you are connecting to the internet.

If you are using wireless in your house, make sure its not protected with WPA encryption, change the wireless encryption to WEP if you are using encryption. - for wireless wlan you would need a add-on Wireless adapter. if you are using bluetooth, then the settings on the computer - internet connection sharing is probably not turned on.

I can't go into detail now since this is complex and I don't have much information to work from.

this device is not easy or simple to get connected to the internet without connecting it to your computer with a data cable. with a data cable it should work instantly, if not then some settings might need to be changed.

DELL AXIM X51 RUNS SLOW


Have you updated to the latest system utilities? (Formerly known as A12 English ROM image for X51v & A04 ROM image for X51, this is a newer update than those.)
The link to the instruction page is long - here is the direct ftp

Hope that helps.

There is only one way that I know of from DELL and is performing a "Hard Reset". You will loose all your loaded programs and data loaded in Flash memory in the process:
1. With the Axim turned ON, press the Reset button until it clicks and hold it, then
2. Press the Power button, then
3. Release the Reset button, then
4. Release the Power button.
When you see the prompt on the screen, press the "Contacts" button to reset the Axim to factory defaults. You can also choose to press the "Mail" button if you need to cancel the reset process. :)

Date keeps resetting after powerdown


It sounds as if there is a small internal battery - something like a watch battery that should be keeping the clock going - I couldn't confirm this online but this was common in gps systems. It shouldn't be too hard to get to, probably have to take the back off, but it should be easy to replace. Hope this helps, please post again if not :)
