I have a Dell Axim X51 and it seems to hang up whenever it has been used for a while. I usually have to do a re-set to get it going again, it's a real pain in the ****. It reminds me of when a computer gets clogged up with cookies and temp files.. but I don't know how to clean that out on a pocket pc.. could be a different problem. I have no idea. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Have you updated to the latest system utilities? (Formerly known as A12 English ROM image for X51v & A04 ROM image for X51, this is a newer update than those.) The link to the instruction page is long - here is the direct ftp Hope that helps.

the dell axim x51 is a Pocket PC with built in GPS and if you cant remember the password your only option is to reflash the device and start again , as the password is there for a reason, to stop unauthorised people gaining access
This depends entirely on how you are connecting to the internet.
If you are using wireless in your house, make sure its not protected with WPA encryption, change the wireless encryption to WEP if you are using encryption. - for wireless wlan you would need a add-on Wireless adapter. if you are using bluetooth, then the settings on the computer - internet connection sharing is probably not turned on.
I can't go into detail now since this is complex and I don't have much information to work from.
this device is not easy or simple to get connected to the internet without connecting it to your computer with a data cable. with a data cable it should work instantly, if not then some settings might need to be changed.
Unfortunately............no. Too many differences in hardware. There ARE however, there are ways to make it web accessable using bluetooth through a cell phone. Very doable and worth doing with any of the Dell x5x series PDAs. Can be done, I've just never gone that far to find out how.Check out Mobilitysite and HTCGeeks for a wealth of info on anything Dell Axim (other mobile stuff too!).
Dell made an entry into the market of Personal Digital Assistants (PDA)
with Axim X5. The Dell Axim comprises of families of X5, X3, X30, X50
and X51. The Dell Axim PDA can be connected to the computer either by
using a cradle or a sync cable. The sync cable connects the device to
the computer directly. Here are the steps for connecting a Dell Axim to
a computer using a sync cable.
Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the
PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PC Companion CD.
The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
the PDA. If the PDA is not properly cabled to the computer, you will
get the following message: “Connect your device to a computer using a
sync cable or cradle before running the system update. Ensure that
ActiveSync is installed on the computer and that the ActiveSync
connection is successful.”
Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.
It sounds as if there is a small internal battery - something like a watch battery that should be keeping the clock going - I couldn't confirm this online but this was common in gps systems.
It shouldn't be too hard to get to, probably have to take the back off, but it should be easy to replace.
Hope this helps, please post again if not :)
