Re: My PC not turn on

The Toshiba Pocket PC e740 is shipped with an Enabled security feature, which switches off the batteries. In order to be able to turn on the unit, the Battery Switch must be in a battery "Supply" position. Please check if the Battery Switch is in a Stop position or Supply position. The Battery Switch can be found on the lower right edge of the unit, next to the "Cradle Connection Port". Please see the below diagram The Battery Switch supplies or stops power to the Pocket PC. When using the Pocket PC for the first time, slide this switch to the left with the stylus pen. If you have further questions, please refer to the Instruction Manual page 2-4 (21 of 182).

Have toshiba pda/e740, have no drivers for pc


Try going to the website of your Operating System (ie, Windows, Mac, ect). I've only used Windows , butsee if you can download the Activesync software that you need there. The e740 was only available with Windows Pocket PC 2002, and will appearantly not sync to Vista PCs, however.
I will try to check back in a day or two, so let me know if this is of any help to you.

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.
