My ASUS MyPal A626 suddenly stopped booting up. Tried to reset it and it would go through the ASUS screen and start into the Windows Mobile startup screen -- the go black. Attempt to restart would only result in the blue LEDs on the selector panel blinking. I tried resetting several times, tried removing the battery several times, same thing. Then, just as suddenly as the problem began, it vanished. Is this hardware or software and if the latter, waht can I do to avoid it again?
If your Asus MyPal a626 ends up as a brick because of a failed upgrade, etc. This will restore it as a new device. I assume you have lost everything and it won't boot, soft reset or hard reset. It worked for me on 11/16/2008. Use at your own risk.

I would like to introduce Windows Password Recovery 6.0 . it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password. I Wrote it to an old 128mb USB flash drive do this. Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm. You can download it from http://www.recoverlostpassword.com/products/windowspasswordrecoery.html
I had this problem on my A639 after going on holiday with it (I think
the x-ray scanners did something to it). It started switching itself off
more and more as the days went by until one day it went off and never
came back. After resetting it, it just stayed on the blue "ASUS Rock
Solid Heart Touching" screen. I was worried that it was totally broken
and I'd have to pay to get it repaired, but after searching the internet
it turned out all I needed to do was re-flash the ROM with a fresh copy
(I used the latest ROM). It now works fine and no longer turns itself
off... didn't cost me ANYTHING to fix :-)

Hi, I helped a friend of mine with his wifi setup. His WEP Key was on the side of his router. I don't remember the exact work but it was something Key. It was 10 numbers long just right for a 64 bit key. If you are using Win XP there is a wifi setup in there. I have a mypal A626 and had it up and running in a few minutes on my wifi system. If you have security, you will need to find the code in order to get a connection. grader01
Did your friend do a "hard reset" of the PDA before she gave it to you? A hard reset should erase all user settings and data, returning the system to its default state.
The ASUS 626 User Manual (Ch. 1, Pg. 4) refers to this process as a "clean reset". The following instructions were extracted from the user guide:
NOTE To perform a clean reset, press the launch button and simultaneously pressing the stylus on the reset switch. Then a warning message appears. Press to do clean reset, or press to leave the operation screen. Performing a soft reset will not change the data in the device; while performing a clean reset will delete all data
