I have upgraded to WM5, and for a couple of days everything worked out fine. Then suddenly the iPAQ started to freeze during start up. When I try a soft reset the process starts, but after 10-15 sec it freezes again and the screen becomes white. From there I have also tried a hard reset several times, but it keeps freezing during start up. I have charged the battery through the night but it does not help. Now I try to remove the battery for some hours and hope it will completely reset everything. Any other suggestions?? firstname.lastname@example.org
Tell me frankly, did you really do hard-reset and the problem still?, my experience is that hard reset process is that it will do re-installing a default windows to your devices. If you sure it was a start-up problem, then the problem is solved already. Unless the problem is similar with Ekse's one (it maybe after he/she 'googling' with few technician and got that result). I suggest to re-flash your BIOS using PC.

Failed to start background reading (status=5, error=-102, retcode=0). Perform a normal resert and try again. IPAQ 5500 can you please send me the files to upgrade it? Ljubimirek1996@hotmail.com
Hi, I have same problem. After upgrade bios to version 1.10 my ipaq h1940 don`t start windows. When switch ON appears HP logo, time line go to end, and ipaq stay block. No possible switch OFF and no starting windows.
I had the same problem. Contacted HP customer service chat, and got the following answer that
solved the problem:
1. Remove the battery for 30 minutes. 2. Insert it again in the iPAQ. 3. Perform a clean reset on the iPAQ and at the same time charge the iPAQ.
To perform a clean reset please follow these steps:
Press and hold the Calendar button, the Power button, and the Messaging button.
While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ.
The problem can also be solved by getting a new battery, and performing the clean reset while charging (using the portable charger, not the cradle).
This original question is so old it probably won?t help the original poster but instead is meant for anyone who runs across this in the future with a similar problem.
If you haven?t already done so backup your data, remove any extra cards or plug-ins and do a cold-boot. If that doesn?t work the next step is to remove Active Sync and install the latest version from Microsoft. If that doesn?t help then the next thing I would try is syncing to another PC and then another cradle if possible. If the problem persists the only thing left to try would be reflasing the ROM.
