Question about HP iPAQ HX4705 Pocket PC

2 Answers

Dropped; now dead

I dropped my ipaq hx4705 ppc (with coveted medical software that I feel crippled without) this afternoon in it's case--not a terrible drop; just from the table to the floor.  The PPC is now completely dead; no soft or hard reset; nothing.  In the past, it once happened previously and I had to remove the battery to get it to reset (thus, losing all of my stored data and had to reload--not a tragedy but a complete pain in the butt).  Anyway, is it finally dead or is there hope?

Make sure the two battery door lock buttons are in the 'lock' position. The device will not turn on unless these are locked.

You will have to open up the PDA case and take out internal battery (round one). It might just need to be replace or resitted. Next time, backup your data to a memory card.

Need to transfer files from the Hx4705 main memory to the installed SD card using only the HX4705


Go to 'Start > Programs > File Explorer'. Chose the directory containing the file you want to copy by tapping the application's top bar. Tap and hold the file to be copied, until a context menu pops up. Select 'Copy'. Now, choose the Storage Card from the top bar. Once there, tap on 'Menu > Edit > Paste'. Your file should be copied.
Hope it works for you.
Cheers! Carlos

Is a compaq ipaq h3835 compatable with vista


No, you do not need an upgrade. You'll need to be download only "Windows Mobile Device Center" to your Vista PC instead of ActiveSync. (ActiveSync is not compatible with Vista, instead Microsoft changed the software a bit called "Windows Mobile Device Center" and can be downloaded from Microsoft's website.) Your Vista PC should also recognize your ipaq PPC without needing any driver CD. I hope it helps.

Is an audible alarm software available?


I'm not sure of the HX4705's capabilities to sound multiple alarms, but I have downloaded a free alarm program called Wolfclock to my iPaq rz3715 which I use for the exact same reasons (meetings, wake up, take medication...) Try this link: http://www.pocketpcfreewares.com/en/index.php?soft=1045

WIFI w/WEP


Hi, I use 128 wep at home with no problem. A couple of points: 1) NEVER use the 'phrase' option. 2) Always type out the key in UPPER case, everywhere. On the iPaq, on your router, everywhere. It is NOT supposed to make a difference when you enter a hex key, but some hardware will see 'a' and 'A' as different. A sample key would be: 1234567890ABC1234567890ABC1234567890ABC 3) Alway s do a 'battery reset' after configuring the adapter. That is, pull the battery for 10 seconds and then put it back in. A soft reset does not reset the WiFi hardware. You will not lose any data (this is NOT a hard reset).

File Transfer


Use file explore option in Activesyn or just use a SD card reader to transfer music, pictures, etc. to the card. It's much faster & easier.
