    Thanks much for the possible solution, I'm going to pick up a new memory card and try to download it off of that since my Ipaq will not sync. Unless you have an easier way to do it. When I insert the memory card into the Ipaq will it automaticly start to boot or do I need to do anything to it. Thanks again for your assistance.

I had the same problem which showed the exact screen you're describing and was able to sort it by downloading the ROM update from the HP site - they show it only available for US but works fine on UK machines as well. It takes a short while to install but has restored mine back to normal again. (only problem was incompatability with windows vista - works fine with XP)

Hi,

Did you try to flash the BIOS/firmware of your device?

1.) Go to the Master Index of BIOS, FIRMWARE, & DRIVER Updates,
2.) Select the appropriate hyperlink for your model. (in your case it's here http://mobilitytoday.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4846)
3.) Download the most recent BIOS version SoftPAQ (SP) for your Model of iPAQ.
4.) Press the POWER + iTASK + CONTACTS + RESET buttons at the same time so as to enter the FLASH Mode
5.) Make sure your USB connection to the Cradle is hooked-up.
6.) Place your iPAQ in the USB Cradle.
7.) Stop the MS ActiveSync session on your HOST PC: CTRL-ALT-DELETE > TASK MANAGER > PROCESSES.
8.) Hilight WESCOMM.EXE and select "End Process" button.
9.) Run the file you downloaded from HP in step 3.
10.) The iPAQ should now begin Flashing the iPAQ's ROM BIOS

HX4700 does a hard reset when car turns off power to 12V outlet


HP told me that this is not really a problem of the PDA, but of the navigation software... Those guys told me that there will be a free of charge update to version 5.1 to cure these problems.
