Question about HP iPAQ RX3715 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Memory I've got a rx3715. Why is it that whenever you close a program by clicking the "OK" or "X" buttons the program continues to run in the background? Last night I tried to open a program and it said I didn't have enough memory. So I looked into how much memory was available and it was basically nothing. But when I looked under running programs, there were about 6 or 7 programs in there. They were all the programs I had previously used. Shouldn't the programs stop running when they are closed?

Re: Memory

Your options: from time to time go to Running Programs and close what you're done with; or, as you're leaving a progran, check whether it has an Exit or Quit command; or, open iTask, tap and hold on the name of a program, and choose Close this Task from the pop-up menu; or, my favorite, use the on-screen keyboard and tap Control and then Q (upper or lowercase)--that'll work with almost any progran that accepts text input.

Htc touch diamond 2 screen is freezing cant call etc


1. Turn off HTC Home Sprint and Today Timeout. Settings -->Today --> Items --> Uncheck Today Timeout and HTC Home Sprint
2. Turn off Activesync. This can be done by closing activesync and going to Settings --> Phone --> Services --> Time synchronization and uncheck time sync. This will stop activesync from starting all the time

3. Turn Roaming to "SPRINT ONLY". Settings --> Phone --> Services --> Roaming --> SPRINT ONLY
Open the Task Manager (top right corner icon), clicked on the “tool” icon, then the “button” tab, and changed the “Enable the X button to end running programs,” selection form “End programs by tapping and holding X” to “End programs by tapping X.” Now, when you tap the “X” to close a program, it actually closes, and frees up more system memory. The same result can be achieved by tapping and holding the “X”, rather than changing the setting, if preferred. The objective is to CLOSE the programs and free up the memory.

How do you uninstall a program from a palm treo 750?


You need activesync
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/downloads/microsoft/activesync-download.mspx

ActiveSync’s Tools >Add/Remove Programs screen lists all the programs that have been installed on your device. To uninstall a program, uncheck the box next to it and click on OK. To reinstall a program, click on the empty box next to it and click on OK. Do not click on the Remove button. Here's how to do it: If you used ActiveSync to install a third-party program to your Windows Mobile device, you can uninstall the program quickly from your PC.
  1. Make sure your Windows Mobile device is connected to your PC and ActiveSync is running.
  2. From the PC’s ActiveSync Window, click on Tools >Add/Remove Programs. This opens the “Add/Remove Programs” dialog box, which displays a list of third-party programs you have installed on your device.
  3. To uninstall any of the checked programs, click on the box to uncheck it and hit OK—ActiveSync will do the rest.

Reinstalling programs you’ve uninstalled Once you’ve installed a program using ActiveSync, the necessary installation files are saved on your PC. If you uninstall the program as described above, you can use the Add/Remove Programs menu to reinstall it at a later time. Uninstalled programs appear in the Add/Remove Programs list as items with unchecked boxes. To reinstall it, click on the check box next to it and hit OK. ActiveSync will reinstall the program automatically. Note that files in CAB format can be downloaded directly to a device and installed, so they will not appear in the Add/Remove Programs list. In addition, some freeware programs are installed by using ActiveSync’s Explorer to copy the program file to your device. Those also do not appear in the Add/Remove list. WARNING: Do not click on the “Remove” button at the bottom of the Add/Remove Programs screen unless you never again plan on using the program. This completely removes the necessary installation files from your PC and you won’t be able to reinstall the program by checking the box.

IPAQ file store problem


You're not alone! Virtually every ipaq rx3715 gets this problem at one time or another. Unfortunately, it is a massive memory issue. Be prepared to potentially lose all of your data, including programs. My suggestion would be to back up your ipaq before you do this. I do not know if the backup retains the memory error, but what I would do is back it up, perform the fix, and then restore the data back onto the ipaq. If your file store problem is fixed, there you go! If the problem comes back upon restoring the pocket pc, then unfortunately you will lose all data and programs in order to fix the memory, and that will be a personal choice. For most of us, the ipaq simply freezes up upon entry into the file store, so consider yourself lucky that they simply do not delete.

Here is the step-by-step process of how to fix your problem.

1. Download GER and ENG ROMs (latest) from HP's support site
2. Unpack both
3. Cancel the automatic flash procedure.
4. Locate the EnterBootLoader.exe file in the folder of the unpacked GER update
5. Copy it to PPC
6. Run it from the PPC
7. Run the ROMUpdateUtility.exe file from the desktop to start flash procedure.
Then you have a German-language PPC
8. Locate the EnterBootLoader.exe file in the folder of the unpacked ENG update
9. Repeat steps 5-7 for the English update
You're done




Remember, you're not alone! We all had the same problem.

Freezing/crashing


98% device get freezes because not enough memory to run programs, XDAII mini do have only 64MB, if you have installed many application on device better move them to SD Card. Windows mobile will not close application as you click on close button you have to goto "Running Programs" and stop unwanted running programs. or else try "SPB Pocket Plus" if you close programs and remove them from memory. as i experience if you installed few app's and few games you will get less than 20MB to run application its really not enough.

Rx3115 won't show close button


Jul 14, 2005 18:26:04 GMT unassigned Well, this isn't a solution, but rather a way to work with it until you find the solution. On my rx3715, I have something called iTask. I have a button I can press on the unit that brings it up, or I can go to Programs and tap on iTask. Once it's up, I can see which programs are running and close one or all of them. Another way, if you don't have iTask or something like it, is to use your memory settings to close programs. On mine, I go to Settings>Memory and then the Running Programs tab. From there I can "stop" any program. I know this doesn't solve the problem, but now at least you'll be able to close all those programs. For a solution, I'd try doing a soft reset. If that doesn't work, do a hard reset. Maybe someone else will have some better ideas.

Increasing Memory


The bad news is that many of the programs you might like to do away with are built into the ROM, and can't be deleted. The good news is that most programs will run perfectly well if installed on the storage card, so if you've got programs installed in main memory, you can realize some savings by running them from the storage card instead.. If you go that route, be sure to Remove the program from main memory and then re-install it to the storage card.
