Question about HP iPAQ H1940 Pocket PC

1 Answer

PDA freezes Hi, Everytime I try to launch Word, Excel or Today programmes, teh device freezes and I have to do a reset. To resolve the problem I have tried hard and soft resets and upgraded the ROM to 1.10; all this did not work. I also tried to launch these applications through the explorer, but the PDA freezes again. The devise also freezes when I try to use Notes. Also when I open the Today programme to customize/change picture, there are no items to choose from. This exteremely frustrating as I can no longer use these programmes. All other programmes work fine. Sorry this is a bit long but I want to give you a full picture. Thanks, Saidou

Instead of doing the restore again and again I would start from scratch. First do ony the basics (the programs/drivers you need to replicate the problem). If it works then, install all other things. If not, you can always go back to the restore. The problem with a restore is that, if the Registry got screwed up for one reason or another, the problem will come back as soon as you restore. Installing from scratch will prevent that. If it doesn't help you could have a hardware problem. I suggest you contact HP about a replacement or a repair on your unit. How's the warranty? Good luck

Forgot phonelock password


Hard reset(factory reset), you can do this by finding the method using google to boot your phone into recovery mode(the mode to update or modify device) and select hard reset, if you still want your data, backup all files to your computer, or if you want to, you can hack your phone with a custom recovery, and find a file you can launch for it temporary disable the lock, but it's easier to hard reset. If you can't resolve this problem, try XDA developers.

My 1 month old HTC HD2 phone freezes. It gave a message like "Launching Touch sense..." and then froze. I cannot open any application. Phone displays all tools, applications. But does not open any when...


It must have been something you have installed. Perhaps you should hard reset your device, in order to get rid of such a condition. To hard reset it, read chapter 14 'Performing a factory reset', on pages 292 and 293 of its user manual. It describes two ways of doing it: software (if your device responds to taps) or keys combination (it is completely unresponsive) driven.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Cheers! Carlos

Microsoft activation assistant unable to launch


Try OpenOffice instead http://download.openoffice.org/index.html ... it's free, forever, not just 30 days. It can read and save Office Files (Excell, Word, Powerpoint, etc.), it's Open Source and has all the features you are likely to need. Versions avail for Mac, PC, Linux. 

I switched a month ago, after using MS Office products for a decade .... I don't miss them at all.  I can read all my old files and save them in original MS format, or in the Open Office format.
Try it ... you might like it.    You could always send them a few bucks if you feel it's worth it.
MS code == buggy. Open source code gets fixed because any qualified programmer can look at the source code and contribute a fix.  Considering open source is developed by a rag tag world wide team of programmers,  you will be amazed that the quality is frequently better that MS.  Sun Microsystems has donated a slew of money (programmer time, and hard cash) to developing Open Office.  
Many companies have great, high quality, ad free, software for free, like AVG Antivirus Free version, etc.  
If you try OO, let me know what you think.

It's possible that you do not have Outlook installed. To determine whether or not it is installed try going to Start and then Run and then type "Outlook.exe" (without the quotes). If you have Outlook installed it will launch.

HP iPAQ RZ1710 Pocket PC freezes on pin entry!!


If still freeze after the resets, then try to do a Hard Reset.
With this way you will restore your device at the default condition.
Take care to remove any external memory from iPAQ before to this and also have it
full charged.

The bad of this....you will loose everything stored at the internal memory of iPAQ.
The good this...your iPAQ would be alive again ;-)

To to a Hard Reset press at the same time the reset button+calendar button+today button.
