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?

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.

then press your reset button on the back of your Dell axim and release your reset button quickly, but keep on holding the power button and the wireless button until a white screen pops up saying something about updating.

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)

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.
