Question about Acer n311 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Acer n311 I have an Acer n311. For the past few months after I have been using the pda for about 3-4 minutes the screen freezes, and none of the buttons respond (to switch it on or off). The the only way to get it to work is to remove the battery and re-insert it, and do a soft reset. But often it will again freeze during the boot-up process. I thought it might be the battery, but a new battery has made no difference. Anyone able to help?

    I have an Acer n311. For the past few months after I have been using

    buttons respond (to switch it on or off). The the only way to get it to
    work is to remove the battery and re-insert it, and do a soft reset.
    But often it will again freeze during the boot-up process.
    I am thinking about a hard reset if this is possible with it freezing every time it boots up. That will be my last resort if there is no other way.
    HELP!!!!!!!!

    I had the exact problem. Except now it's worse. I used to overcome the problem by performing a hard reset and loading the bootloader (for some reason it didn't wipe the memory), but now even that doesn't work anymore. and my pretty little Acer PDA is just a useless slab!

Hi. the question is, which ROM version do you use. just go to settings and choose about... there you can find info about the current ROM. look for the last two numbers (they should be between 16 and 24 which is the latest and stable version) here is the short guide how to proceed with the update an here you can download mentioned ROM. I advise you not to restore your device afterwards, it won't work!

maybe you have to many files on it. have you tried to erase some datas and some applications? if so, then resesting it may be applied by using a usb cable and a software for reseting it, and a pc is required.

but I recommend to you to let a person who can do this, reseting your pda may cause a fatal damage to your unit if not properly reseted.


hoping your pda will be in good condition after..

please don't rate me badly..^^

You could have a corrupted program on your PDA. You need to contact HP and have them re-flash or upgrade the firmware of your PDA and it should work much better than before.

Have a great day!

Freezes on the 'Rebuilding...' screen.


The same thing happened too me about six months ago after about a year and a half of using my zen with min. problems. It would freeze on 'Rebuilding..' and then there was an endless cycle of reset but eventually it would Rebuild completely and all my music and information was fine. It seemed to be playing fine but if it froze I had to start the reset game all over again. Then the real problems started. There are a few load screens before you make it to the Rebuild and it started to freeze on that instead after awhile. I was actually revealed when I froze on 'rebuilding..' and made it that far.
If you can get it into recover mode and reboot it seems to have less problems freezing but that doesn't even work for me anymore. Then occasionally when it freezes it starts to vibrate terribly and make a horrible sound. Then it stops and flashes hard disk problems.
This all happened slowly too me. It really wasn't worth the time I put into it trying to fix it. My advice is to work on getting a new MP3 player. If you can get it past the 'rebuilding..' your going to have to play the reset game every time it freeze and it will probably freeze more often.

Can't get soft reset screen on Ipaq travel companion rx5915


Hi,
Try This:-
To perform a factory reset and return your HP iPAQ to factory settings:

1. Press and hold the Quick Launch and Rotate Screen buttons.
2. While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the HP iPAQ until the device restarts.
3. When the HP iPAQ restarts, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button. The HP iPAQ restarts and powers on.

I have a Palm TX. 3Years old. 6 Months ago had to calibrate Touchscreen every day. 2 months ago had to calibrate touch screen 2/3 times a day. Recently can't calibrate touch screen. Targets go into loop...


Same happened to my 3 month old TX. I just recharged it, and all was OK! Sounds strange at first, but in my hometown, it is very humid, so maybe it got some moist inside and that caused some variations in the power or battery or voltage... dunno, maybe you need some cleaning, or try to calibrate while plugged.

Hope to be useful!
