Question about Dell Axim X51v Pocket PC

DELL AXIM X51 RUNS SLOW

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

    I've had my pda for a year and it is running slower now. It now runs so slow that almost every program activation request starts with the pda freezing for 30 to 60 sec. example; contacts, power on, solitare, file explore etc.. I don't used it to surf the internet due to the small screen, i have used it a dozen times or so for that. Any help out there, its running rom ver A12, WLAN utility 1.0.0.2 and I can only connect to the internet using WEP, but my company uses WPA and I do not have a driver for it, is there one???

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.

Can i make my axim x51 a smartphone.


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!).

Does not recognize my connection for active sync


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.
  1. p 1 The Microsoft ActiveSync software must be installed in order to connect the PDA to the computer. This software is found in the Dell Axim Pocket PCmag-glass_10x10.gif Companion CD.
  2. Step 2 The Axim X51 PDA has a 36-pin connector, while the X3 has a 22-pin docking connector.
  3. Step 3 Connect the USB connector found at the end of the sync cable to the computer.
  4. Step 4 Check 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.”
  5. Step 5 Ensure that the Dell logo faces upward.
  6. Step 6 Use the sync cable to set up a partnership, which can be done multiple times when you sign in as a guest.

Have you tried hooking it up to the cradle or power plug? That should automatically kick the display on.

You don't say if the Axim crashed. If so, try hitting the reset button with a pen point on the back of the Axim. That should reboot it. Post back with how it goes.
