IPAQ 1715 not recognized

I recently had a hard drive crash. I've been trying to get my iPAQ set up again on my new hard drive. I can no longerlocate my installation CD for my iPAQ, but I was able to download Active Sync 3.8. The problem is that my computer isn't recognizing the iPAQ - it says there are no drivers installed for it. I've gone to the "download drivers & software" section on the HP website, but nothing there has been helpful. Since I can't locate my installation CD, am I just stuck with an iPAQ that won't sync, or is there something else I can do?

Hard drive crashed on tascam dp02

A hard drive crash on a Tascam DP-02 digital recorder can be a major issue, as it can result in the loss of recorded audio files and settings. Here are a few potential solutions below:

Check the connections: Make sure that the hard drive is securely connected to the Tascam DP-02. If the connections are loose, the hard drive may not be recognized by the device.

Reformat the hard drive: If the hard drive is still recognized by the Tascam DP-02, you may be able to reformat it and use it again. This will erase all data on the hard drive, so make sure to back up any important audio files before reformatting.

Replace the hard drive: If the hard drive is not recognized by the Tascam DP-02 or reformatting does not work, you may need to replace the hard drive. You can use a compatible hard drive with the same capacity or larger.

Seek professional help: If none of the above solutions work, it may be best to take your Tascam DP-02 to a professional technician who can diagnose and repair the issue.

It is important to keep in mind that, regardless of the solution, you will lose the audio files and settings that were stored on the hard drive. Backing up your files regularly is crucial to avoid data loss.

reset my Tascam DP o2 - You May Try onces.

To perform a factory initialization of the DP-02 turn the unit off. Hold the Up Arrow and Track Edit while powering the recorder on. You'll get a confirmation screen and then press the Yes/Enter button.

Blue screen error plus blank start up screens but the start up sound can be heard.

Have you changed any BIOS settings? I would open your BIOS menu and make sure it is set to "AHCI"

Hard reset of my hp ipaq 510 i forgot my password

s.gifs.gifHP iPAQ 500 Voice Messenger Series - Resetting the Device
Sometimes you need to reset your iPAQ if, for example, it is not responding to your pressing a button or your tapping the screen.There are two types of resets.
  • Soft Reset - A soft reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any programs or saved data.
  • Factory or Hard Reset - A factory or hard reset clears all user-installed settings, programs, and data, and restores your iPAQ to factory settings.

Performing a Soft ResetPerform a normal or soft reset to stop all running applications, to restart the iPAQ after installing a new application, or if the iPAQ locks up.CAUTION:Make sure to close all running applications before performing a soft reset, since a soft reset erases all unsaved data in such applications.Perform a soft reset using one of these two options.
  • Turn off the iPAQ by holding down the End key.c01118005.jpg1 - End Key
  • Remove the battery of your iPAQ.

Performing a Factory or Hard ResetPerform a factory or hard reset when there is a need to clear all settings, programs, and data from the RAM.CAUTION:Performing a hard reset will return the iPAQ to its default settings and it loses all information (files and settings, among others) that is not recorded in the ROM. Back up all important information or data before performing a hard reset.Follow these steps to perform a hard reset and return your iPAQ to factory settings.
  1. Turn off your iPAQ by holding down the End key.
  2. Then hold down the center of the 4-Way Navigation key and turn on the iPAQ again while continuing to do so.c01118006.jpg1 - 4-Way Navigation Key2 - End Key
  3. A confirmation screen opens asking whether you want to perform a hard reset or not. SelectYes . The iPAQ will reboot with its original factory settings.
NOTE:The applications and data present on your iPAQ before performing the hard reset can be reinstalled by synchronizing your iPAQ with a computer using ActiveSync/WMDC (Windows Mobile Device Center).NOTE:If you don't want the iPAQ playing a tune after you turn it on, create a new text document and save the document as StartUp.wav. Replace this new document with the file on your device.

No Hard Disc found after crash

Compaq uses F10 at boot to initiate the recovery program resident on the hard drive partition normally called "Recovery". If you cannot initiate the hard drive at boot then press F1 to get to setup and see if the hard drive is recognized there. If it is not then you will have to troubleshoot the hard drive.
If you have another laptop to try the hard drive out or a laptop to IDE hard drive adapter  (cheap) to connect to a desktop computer as a slave drive you will either verify that the hard drive is bad or it is good and a boot sector problem is at hand. Also if you can get the drive recognized as a slave drive you can either rescue data or format the drive.
These are preliminary steps so post again when you have more information. Steve Medley

Cannot find hard drive error after repair

Couldn't find the hard drive or the DVD drive? If it's the hard drive then the crash was due to a hard drive failure and the hard drive will have to be replaced. If it's the DVD drive, you will need to get a floppy for it and flash the bios in order for the machine to recognize the DVD drive again.

When I connect my iPAQ to my PC, it will not recognize the device

It shouldn?t take more than 10 to 15 seconds for Active Sync to detect the iPAQ once it is inserted in the cradle and it turns on. First off you need to update to the latest version of Active Sync which is 4.5. Lots of synchronization issues have been fixed since 3.7 so here is the link to the download: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9e641c34-6f7f-404d-a04b-dc09f8141141&DisplayLang=en A couple of times over the past few years I?ve gotten a non recognition error as well. Each time I?ve been able to get away with removing and installing the latest version and my problem has been solved.
