Once you forget the Password, your only option is to perform a Hard Reset on the device and reset back to Factory defaults. You data will be lost, as this is in place to protect you in case the device has been lost or stolen. If you have backups, or sync the device with Outlook, you can run a restore or re-sync the device to populate the data back into your device.

Hard Reset
NOTICE: When you do a hard reset, you lose all the data stored in your device
Flash memory, and any programs that you installed on your device.
Do a hard reset if:

  • You want to restore the device to factory default settings.
  • You forget your password and need to reset it.
  • Your device is experiencing severe operational problems and you have already attempted a soft reset.
NOTICE: It is strongly recommended that you back up your data before you do a hard reset.

To do a hard reset:
  1. Press the Power button to turn the Axim unit On.
  2. Press and hold the Power button down while using the Axim stylus to press the Reset button at the same time.
  3. Release the Power button and the Reset button. The To clear all data in the memory screen appears.
  4. Press the Contacts button on the Axim to delete all of the data in the memory of the Axim handheld.
  5. Press the Mail button on the Axim to cancel the operation without losing data.

    Just take out its bios battery [back-up lithium battery; disc type]; thus disable the bios memory. The re-insert the battery. All bios settings will be lost, but no data loss will occur. You have to re-set the bios settings, by holding F1 button during startup.

    Forgot log on password

    Troubleshooting lost or forgotten passwords:

    1. Make sure Caps Lock is turned off.

    2. For Notebook computers, make sure Num Lock is turned off.

    3. If the password has special characters in it (examples: ! * $ # +), make sure you press the SHIFT key (not the CTRL key) when entering the password.

    4. Try these common default passwords:
      • Administrator
      • Password
      • Leave password field blank

    5. If you are unable to correctly enter the password after using the previous steps, the only option is a format and reload of the computer with all data removed from the drive.

    I forgot my pin # on ma garmin nuvi200

    Hi there,
    As far as I know the only way to clear the password would be a system reset:
    Turn the unit off, put your thumb in the bottom right of the screen, turn it on (keeping your thumb where it is) and answer yes to the question.
    This will clear any user data and put the unit back to factory settings.
    Make sure you visit the Garmin site and download the latest updates.
    Warm regards and merry christmas.
