Question about HP iPAQ hw6515 Pocket PC
When I installed the rom update everything went fine until the very end, at which time I was informed the device failed to initialize. It then went to a dark screen with the hp logo in the middle, "USB" on top of the screen, and "v.0.21" at the bottom. After taking out the battery the unit restarts with the setup process but after doing the tapping of the screen thing and the appearance of the normal menu, a "customization" process starts that soon brings me back to a dead screen. Neither Windows Mobile Device Center (my laptop runs vista) nor windows explorer show any connection to the HP device, although I do get a notice from my computer that a usb device has malfunctioned and is not recognized. How do I reinstall the old ROM (or the new one correctly) and get this thing running again?
Hi. I had this problem with my iPaq and there is a soloution. Unfortunatley. it is impossible to repair whilt you are running vista. HP insists that you run Windows XP or Erlier, with Active Sync installed. We can however give this repair a try. I would need to know first of all what country you are in, and which version of the 6515 you have. i.e a, b, c etc....
email me firstname.lastname@example.org with the details and i'll email you back with the soloution.
