PDA stops during Bios upgrade

I was in the process of upgrading my bios to the latest version. In the cause, an error occured telling me some .dll file cannot be found. On reset all that I see is a dark screen with the Hp invent logo in the Middle showing USB v1.01.

How can I recover from this to reset it to my original version or how can I resolve this problem, please?

    Hello FixYa,

    Many thanks for your response. My mistake was, as explained on HP website, one should not attempt to flash the bios using only the usb cable. It should be on the cradle and on power. After reading from the website, it was obvious what I did wrong. I re-installed using the Windows Mobile 5 CD. Everything is fine now.

    Much appreciated.

If you have tryed hard reseting it then

You need to get your hands to a working flash of your pdas operateing system, can be hard to find, I was lucky I found many for mine.

After you have the software and the tools needed, most likely the software will have instructions so it shouldnt be hard to do.

After a successfull reFlash of the operateing system everything should be fine.

If you where playing with the bios you need to flash a working version to it. If you cant do it youself I recommend takeing it to a professional, the bios chip can be hard to reprogram.

I have a hp 809a uk desktop and would like to upgrade the processer, which processers are compatible.


any 533FSB P4 Northwood or Willamette processor should work, speeds available up to 3.06GHz. The board being a MSI custom made for HP, it probably wouldn't be too stable; you'd probably be better off running between 2.4GHz and 2.8GHz. An 800FSB processor at 3.0GHz would run at 2.0GHz because the BIOS would either run the FSB at 533 (because it doesn't "know" about 800FSB processors) or it would just quietly fail. Depends on the BIOS version, but not really worth forking out for a 800FSB processor to find out...

I have a ppc i-mate jam windows 2003 how to make it to windows 6


The operating systems on PDAs are different from the normal PC ones. The operating system is stored in the ROM of your PDA, and when you do a hard reset to your PDA, the windows is reinstalled from your ROM. And if there is no ROM upgrade for that particular device by directly from it's brand (sadly there is no ROM upgrade to any other version of windows for that device), you cannot upgrade your device's windows version. There is something called "Cooked ROMs" in the internet containing newer versions of windows, but they are illegal and risky. Anyway, your PDA is designed for that version of windows, including hardware, and newer versions of windows may not work correctly or completely slow down your PDA.

Sony Ericsson syncing problem


Hi I have some experience with this problem and found two solutions:

One is to always keep phone software version and sync software version matched. If you didnt upgrade phone version you should stick with the sync application in your original CD!
If you upgraded to the latest phone version please use the latest sync version that was available at that time! Or, even better, ask the person who upgraded your phone to recommend the best sync version.

Two is to always exit all running applications before starting to sync since some files may be marked as "in use" and the backup process will not be completed. How to do that? goto Task Manager -> Open -> More -> End All and press the back button.

Other solutions I got from an SE technician:
Remove sync software before upgrading or reinstalling it.
Try to install on a different PC.
Format the Memory Card (AFTER YOU BACK IT UP!)
Install Outlook and only then the sync app.

Hope this will help you, if not please
