My Pocket PC E800 hard resets spontaneously, sometimes.
I don't see any evident cause. After resetting, there are only the standard progem loaded, nonetheless it keeps doing this, so I doubt it is a software problem.

Re: E800 spontaneously resets
This hard reset is based on a slack joint.
You could test it, if you turn your PocketPC on, and tip on the cover, near the Display or the Battery. If the PDA make a reset, your Pocket PC need a repair.

Resetting the Device
Sometimes there is a need to reset your Pocket PC. Resetting the device is known as performing a "soft" or "hard" reset.
Performing a Soft Reset
A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any programs or saved data. Be sure to save any unsaved data within a running application before performing a soft reset. Perform a soft reset to: ■ Stop all running applications ■ Install a new application ■ Restart the Pocket PC if it stops responding
To perform a soft reset:
1. Locate the recessed Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ Pocket PC. 2. Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button. The Pocket PC restarts and displays the Today screen.
Performing a Hard Reset
Perform a hard reset only when you want to clear all user-installed settings, applications, and data from RAM (Random Access Memory), where data and applications you have loaded are stored.
CAUTION: If you perform a hard reset, your Pocket PC loses all data and programs not saved in iPAQ File Store.
To perform a hard reset:
1. Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons. 2. While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ Pocket PC for about two seconds.
3. When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
Note: If you simultaneously push and hold the Reset, Calendar, and iTask buttons for more than two seconds, the battery disconnects. To restart the device, either plug the device into the AC Adapter or press the Reset button again. After performing a hard reset, you may need to reinstall applications stored in iPAQ File Store to restore shortcuts and full functionality.
4. The Pocket PC resets and powers on.
To return your iPAQ Pocket PC to factory settings after performing a hard reset:
1. Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer > My Device. 2. Tap the iPAQ File Store folder to open it. 3. Tap Edit > Select All. 4. Tap and hold the selected files, then tap Delete. 5. Tap Yes to delete all file in iPAQ File Store.
some software program is causeing it to slow down.
try uninstalling some of your programs, or preform a hard reset witch returns the pda into the original state.
How Do I Perform a Hard Reset?
Perform a soft reset when:
Press and hold the Calendar and iTask buttons.
While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ Pocket PC for about two seconds.
When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button. CAUTION: If you push and hold the Reset button for more than two seconds, the battery disconnects. To restart the unit, either plug the unit into the AC Adapter or press the Reset button again.
I have the same PDA but unfortunately I am not the expert. In my opinion it is not possible to install IE separately. It is not known to me that there is any possibility to download IE for PDA as an individual program.
If you have already removed all programs why don’t reinstall the OS and it should work properly again.
Did you already install Windows Mobile 2003 SE?
Please go to www.microsoft.com and download iExplorer!
Try to install it!
If I understand you right there is problem with Touch screen because, I suppose, a mylar is not attached correctly to the Top Case Assy. This causes a permanent pressure on the screen.
I am not sure but there should be changed the top case mylar. In my opinion you should contact Service Partner in your country and ask them what the best way to solve this problem is.
Like you know if the PDA is without power supply more than 72 hours there is risk of losing data. In my opinion you should be careful about that and data saving is very important. Till now I had no experience with changing battery and I can not give you a precise advice about that.
I don’t know why you PDA can not read your card but I found some infrmations about parts which are compatible with e800. As far as I know this types are compatible with e800.
Compact Flash Memory Card 1GB (PX1076E-1NME)
Compact Flash Memory Card 512MB (PX1075E-1NME)-Type I
Compact Flash Memory Card 256MB (PX1074E-1NME)-Type I
To my experience, tehre's some evidence this occurs when th device is sort of locked up for too many alarms/notifications being prompted while the device is shut off.
This may cause a shortage of memory, for which soft resetting is the only way out.
Anyway, as long as you don't drain your battery out, it should NOT cause a hard reset (which would imply losing data and third-party software).
