How to change screen saver on hp mini

Hi Iosherrera,

I see that you are tying to change your screen saver on you HP mini 210-2160NR.

* Your HP mini 210-2160NR has Windows7 Starter Edition installed,
* click on start you will see a search bar type in screensaver,
* then choose Change screen saver,
* the Screen Saver Settings windows will appear on your screen, select the screen saver you desire then click on Apply then OK, this is where you can change your screen saver settings instead of going to personalize.

Windows7 starter edition does not have functions like the other window7 version but the above instructions are a work around to personalize your Windows7 starter.

I hope that this will answer your query regarding how to change your Screen Saver on your HP mini 210-2160NR, have a nice day.

You could have a corrupted program on your PDA. You need to contact HP and have them re-flash or upgrade the firmware of your PDA and it should work much better than before.

Have a great day!

Touchscreen problems (HP RX or HX series)

If I understand correctly your problem, the touch screen of your PDA is not working.

Well, this is a common IPAQ failure. When happens, the only options to repair it are:

1. Soft reset of the PDA. If still does not work, then go to next step.

2. Replace the top digitizer glass.

It requires a very skillful person to do it. If you have not experience with fixing electronic devices, then I do suggest you to send it to repair.

Besides that is necessary to open it, you will require a soldering iron, and desolder the digitizer part and remove it from the LCD screen, which if is not done properly with the right tools, it's easy to damage the LCD screen assembly.

Also, if it's not opened right, is possible to damage permanently the mainboard if is bent or warped.

Also, even though there are a lot of cheap digitizer replacement parts on-line (mainly from China), they have a compatibility issue that prevents to use them in the RX3715 (or RX3115) PDAs.

I have nothing against Chinese manufactured parts, but after buy around 10 digitizers in the last couple of years for different Ipaq PDAs, I found out that only 3 worked fine, so I know what I am talking about.

Best regards,

Dropped PDA

You don't have to crack the screen if it is LCD. The "bleeding into the screen" and "black lines" could be symptoms of leaking liquid from the damage/impact of being dropped. Where you send it for repairs would depend on the manufacturer, the store you bought it from, and if you have a service plan or not.

Let us know what the situation is.

Dropped PDA

First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.

Visual Studio.NET on PDA

The PDA uses the Compact .NET framework. You develop with Visual Studio .NET on the PC - just start a new Smart Device Project (select Pocket PC, not Windows CE in the second screen)
