I think i should inform you of my problem, so can be prepared to answer my question. or if we can't chat online, maybe you can send me the answers. I have a HP ipaq 5550, i bought it on ebay and used it for a while. I decided to set up the finger print recognition, and after that i could not log into my pda because it does not recognize my fingerprint. i have done a soft and hard reset on it, and i am still having the same problem. Is there a time that you can set up to chat with me? i live in seattle washington, i do not know what time it is over where you are at.
