If your palmtop PC freezes up during operation, you may find it necessary to reset the device. The two ways to reset the palmtop PC are the soft reset and hard reset.

A soft reset causes any UNSAVED data to be lost.
A hard reset causes ALL data to be lost.

Soft Reset

Remove the backup battery door and press the red reset button inside the compartment, hold for 5 seconds Or alternatively press <CTRL>+
<ON/ OFF>+<BACKSPACE>. The palmtop PC will restart automatically.
