My first opinion would refer to the operating system stored in ROM. Maybe you have a ROM data corruption and you may need to upgrade/reinstall the OS and other files in ROM. As you can't make a connection with active sync (try it however) you will need to have the ROM updated via a specially formated SD card. This is risky to do it yourself as it involves hex editing and raw formating a SD card. If something is done wrong the process fails and the PDA could get damaged. Please go to a service center to have it fixed by them. It is the most safest way. If you however manage in some way to make an active sync connection with you pda (either a partnership or guest connection) you can try to upgrade the ROM yourself using the patch provided by Dell (this is a safe way). Here is a link to download a ROM installation file (english version,also it is Windows Mobile 5, it will also upgrade your operating system) http://ftp.us.dell.com/utility/R143808.EXE (this is an official upgrade from Dell, please follow the instruction in the program). For any other question please feel free to ask and also always remember to rate any answers received from this site :) Good luck !

I want to create a privacy lock on my phone but is not working please help me


You can actually lock your iPhone so you can't accidentally use it. Well, i have this steps of solution that you need hopefully in can help you.
Find a button on the top called the sleep/wake button. The button's a tiny black button on the right side of the phone. It's not actually on the screen part of the phone, but on the silver part.
Press it and your iPhone will lock.
Unlock your iPhone by noting the locked screen. You'll see a small bar at the bottom of the iPhone with instructions to slide the bar to the right to unlock your phone actually on the screen.

Slide your finger along this bar to unlock your phone.
Remember, you can still get phone calls and text messages even when you've locked your iPhone.

On the left side of the pda is a little slide button with a lock symbol on it, make sure it is slid down. This button is a key/screen lock to ensure you dont push any buttons accidentally.

Hp vectra vli8 p3 continues rebooting


Google bad caps on motherboard. I just revived a VLi8 which had this problem. For the KZM-6120 motherboard that I have there a six 1500 uF, 6.3 volt capacitors lined up in front of the pentium III heatsink. Look for gunk oozing out the base of the capacitors. This is a well-known problem apparently. See here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague

Symptoms sound similar. What mine did was that the computer wouldn't reboot after windows 2000 reinstall, lock up during boot, and the yellow lock light would be on sometimes. I could only run from a floppy. Updated bios, changed HD, nothing worked.

Replaced the six caps, and I have reinstalled system (2000 pro) and everything is working fine.

Help I killed it???


Contact DELL for instructions, they should be able to help you.

 

I think they have some kind of resolution for that in the service-agreement you got when you bought the PDA.

 

It's really difficult to do anything like flashing or update the software on the PDA since its a DELL.
