Question about Dell Axim X50 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Crashes when launching IE

Occasionally when opening IE on my axim x50, the browser would close and take me directly back to the "today" screen.

However, recently IE crashed and has failed to ever relaunch properly. It freezes up every time. The same thing happens with the help menu.

Any suggestions?

I have a touchpad pda that has a bad battery and i lost my password since its a long time since i used it it is a dell axim x50,how do i get the battery and charger since both burst due to an electric...

A "soft" reset clears all open programs and "reboots" the Pocket PC. When the Pocket PC powers back up, you'll start with all active programs closed and the device ready to use. This procedure is intended to reset the Pocket PC if it is malfunctioning or has become bogged down. This reset is also sometimes necessary after software is installed. A soft reset is the Pocket PC equivalent to restarting your Desktop or Laptop. The Dell Axim X50 and X50v can be soft reset by pressing the recessed button on the rear of the unit above the battery. A "hard" reset wipes the RAM and returns the Pocket PC to its factory specs. In effect, the Pocket PC will be just as it was when you purchased it. All data entered, preferences set or software installed (other than ROM updates) on the Pocket PC after purchase will be lost after a hard reset and will have to be transferred or reinstalled via ActiveSync. The Dell Axim X50 Series Pocket PCs can be hard reset by performing the following procedure: With the X50 turned on, press and hold the power button at the top of the unit. While holding the down power button, use the stylus tip to press the "Reset" button mentioned above. Allow the screen to fade to off. Release both buttons. The unit will power back on and display a menu to confirm the hard reset request. The Axim will be hard reset, just as it was when it left the factory hope this helps

Just ordered the dell axim x50 is it worth it or is is so old i cant link it with my computer vist 32 bit

You need to Download "Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 for Windows Vista" instead of ActiveSync. Make sure you download the correct version that matches your Vista OS level (ie 32 or 64 bit)

Dell Axim X50 PDA won't turn on

try a hard reset

Dell Axim x50 / x50v / x51 / x51v:

Make sure the device is on before performing hard reset. To hard reset, press and hold the power button and press in on the reset button (reset hole) on the back of the unit for about 2-3 seconds. Release both buttons and you will see a confirmation screen asking you if you would like to clear all data in memory. To do so press the Contacts button. To cancel press the Mail button.

IT may be that the mainboard is faulty and would need to be replaced.

Dell Axim X50 PDA won't turn on

Had the same problem. Did some research and fixed the problem by performing a "soft reset". Tap the reset indentation on the back once quickly. Do NOT hold it in or you will lose all saved data. Mine's working fine now.
