Question about Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Non recognition of password

My dell axim X5 allows me to enter my password and then press "enter" or "OK" but then nothing happens. I have tried a "soft" reset about 25 times but the same thing happens over and over. I do not want to "hard" reset as I would then wipe the disk and lose about 5 years worth of data. I would appreciate anybody's help on this.

If I have to sacrifice the machine to save the data then I would be willing to do this - the data is much more valuable and I was thinking of replacing the PDA soon anyway.

That would be very difficult.

In my experiences of trying to get all the data out of a pda when its in a locked state, when trying to access it from the pc the pda decided to shut it self down.

In the end I had to perform a hardreset to get it to work again.

In theory, if you could somehow tap into the ram and copy all its contents into your pc. But this ram might be protected or encypted.

Its very difficult, since your data is stored in RAM witch will empty itself when the power is cut. (battery removed or other shortcircuit)

If you know the password you are typeing is correct and it still wont login, then there is most likely a software problem witch would require a hard reset.

Good Eevening :


You could get original disk from ebay at times but all you need is the Activesync that can be downloaded from Microsoft. Get Active sync 4.2. The newer ones do NOT work with the X5.

Good luck with the wireless card. The Axim does not play well with many of them. (sometimes works but mostly not) Try drivers from d Link and be sure to remove the old drivers first.

Internet connection


For x5, you will need either cf wifi card or sd wifi card. If wifi network hotspot is free and internet access is allowed (check with your college's network administrator for information), all you need is be in the range, turn the wifi on and connect to it (there maybe several security settings you have to do on the axim and these can also be obtained from network admin). For paid hotspot, you will be redirected to enter username and password when you ty to access internet.

Moving data from PALM III to Axim?


There is a program called Peacemaker that will allow you to transfer contacts by IR. I used it to transfer from my Palm III to my IPaq and from my IPaq to my T-68i. It will only allow a block of 50 contacts at a time
