My mother bought me my pocket pc at a pawn shop and now I have forgotten my pass word help please


The quickest and easiest way is to do a hard reset, BUT you'll lose ALL of your data that's not backed up. Hard reset is done by holding the Power button and pressing the reset button momentarily. If your data's backed up by Active Sync or a backup program (SPB Backup is by far the best I've ever used, but it may also backup your password so you're back to square one) your in good shape, just do a restore.

Hi. Actually, on pocket pcs there's a backup battery onboard, but in your case maybe backup battery is dead. So you can have that changed or you can charge your PDA on regular basis. Hope this helps.

Restoring Backup to New Axim


The backup utility included on your Dell Handheld will backup your data to a storage card. You can restore on your replacement handheld from that storage card. From your Host PC, you can go to Tools | Backup/Restore and do a backup to the Host PC, and you can then restore after syncing the replacement handheld for the first time.

Memory loss


the problem is based on a failure of the backup accu. This can only be fixed by a Toshiba Repair Service. They have to change a Board inside the PDA.

Reset my Pocket PC


A Reset of your Pocket PC is equivalent to "Restart" of a desktop computer. Carry out the Reset only in such unusual cases as when a button or tapping the screen does not respond. When your Pocket PC is reset, no data will be deleted. All stored information like Addresses, Contacts, Tasks or Programs are still stored in the Pocket PC memory. To Reset the Pocket PC, the power must be on. Then press the Reset switch with the stylus, then release. Your Pocket PC should function properly thereafter. If the functions cannot be restored, even after the reset button is pressed, Initialise your Pocket PC (refer to the FAQ article: How can I initialise my Pocket PC (Factory Reset). If you have further questions, please refer to the Instruction Manual page 12-4 (172 of 182).

PDA e310, e330 or e740 together with Windows NT 4.0


The Toshiba Pocket PC's e310, e330 and e740 are designed to work together with Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Millennium, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Microsoft Windows NT4.0 is an older operating system, which does not work together with the Toshiba Pocket PC's e310,e330 and e740. Technical background: The Toshiba Pocket PC's have a USB and a Infrared interface to communicate with a Computer. Unfortunately, Microsoft Windows NT4.0 does not support USB nor Infrared. Windows NT supports a serial connection, but the serial interface is not available for the Pocket PC's e310,e330 and e740. Note: There is the possibility to synchronize a PDA over Network or Modem but the ActiveSync Software, which is responsible for the synchronization, will need a "first sync" to establish a "partnership" with the PDA. This "first sync" can only be done via USB.
