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 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..^^

The best solution to these problems is hard resetting your device. A hard reset will bring your PDA to it's factory default state, so your PDA will be as fast as it was when it was brand new. But this process will erase all your stored data (Such as adress book, messaged, appointments, tasks, pictures, ...) so you should consider having a backup of your PDA to your PC with a backup software before you hard reset your device. So later when you hard reset, you can recover the personal data with this backup file and continue using your PDA faster.
To hard reset your PDA, you must press the on/off button and reset button at the same time (reset button is a small button that needs to be pressed with your pen, and usually it is located in the bottom of the PDA). And later, wait a couple of minutes and the windows will be reinstalled and load up with the starting page of the screen alignment. After you completed all the settings, you can recover your data from your backup file (from PC).

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!
