Question about Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC

1 Answer

Problem "booting" So, I let my battery drain down completely and resynced it with my desktop to charge the battery up. After a couple hours of it charging, the light changed colors like normal. However, when I turned it on, I had to proceed through the screen orientation setup (which was of no surprise). However, I can tap the screen for the point in the very center of the screen, but after that, nothing happens. It's like it's frozen in that one position. Is there a way to overcome this issue, or to "reboot" it? This is my first experience with PDA's, and overall, I've been pleased with it. I'd like to keep it around. If you can provide any possible solutions, it would be much appreciated.

HI You may attempt a master reset (hard reset), it is described in your documentation that come with the pda. After the master reset, things should come to normal. If not there may be a problem with your ROM memory. The ROM memory stores everything Operating Sistem related, as well as program descriptions and the software installed by default by DELL. If the ROM memory becomes corrupt such issues may happen. In this case a ROM update/reflash is required. Please post back if you need more informations.

My kindle will not charge?

The Kindle Fire HD, if completely discharged, may take several hours to begin to accept a charge again. Simply leave it plugged in long enough and the on-board system will sort it out.

Pc booting light blinking battery

As a rule this indicates a low battery or a failing battery. If you charge it and it drains quickly, it needs replacement. When getting a new battery (power cells), fully charge it overnight and use it until it drains completely. Once it is recharged for 24 hours, the batter will obtain a memory and last longer.

I need to know how to use my new laptop battery correctly.

The first time you charge the battery allow 12 to 16 hours, after that 2 to 4 hours or when battery is charged. If you go on battery frequently drain it right down before charging it, this will give the maxi-um performance and longevity.

My battery life lasts 1 1/2 hur. i was told it will last up to 7hurs. how can i fix that. it's a 6 cell battery and it's fully charged. Thank you.

I've rarely seen a 7 hours battery capabality for laptops (seen it ownly in notebooks), normaly they last at the most 4 to 5 h. with laptop running in minimal performance mode...

how old is the battery? if it's new it should last aproximately the time of the specified ratings in the laptop's normal use (according to it's manual) if not it could be defective ask for exchange

if it's an old battery you could try to refresh it by draining it down COMPLETELY and charging it back several times (5 to 10 time)

the best way to drain it completely is to boot in to the BIOS (on battery power) and let it drain untill the computer shutt's off, than re-charge, and so on...

Good luck!

Son ran battery to zero after he broke power cord, now won't boot

Couple of things

First is to let it charge with the lid down for a few hours.
If that does not fix it then check that your son did not use the alternate display option FN F5 or FN F6 on the acers I think

If you still have no luck you might want to ask questions of your son before you take it to a repair shop

IF I WILL CHARGE MY PHONE IN A FEW MINUTES IT SHOWS FULLY CHARGE

I'm not certain what your question is you made a statement more or less.

I do know that alot of cell phones will show that they are fully charged after minutes of charging, but then very quickly go back down to almost dead within an hour. This is because the phone is not actually fully charged. Most batterys need at least an hour minimum to be fully charged after its drained completely.

Post back if you need any further assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
