Resetting the Unit

Performing a Normal Reset - Soft reset

A normal reset is sometimes referred to as a “soft reset.” A
normal reset stops all running applications, but does not erase any
programs or saved data.

CAUTION: Be sure to save any unsaved data before performing a
normal reset since normal reset erases all unsaved data.

To perform a normal reset:
1. Locate the Reset button on the side of your iPAQ Pocket PC.
2. Use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button for two
seconds. The Pocket PC restarts in approximately five
seconds and displays the Today screen.

Performing a Full Reset - Hard reset

A full reset is sometimes referred to as a “hard reset.” Perform a full reset when you want to clear all settings, programs, and data from RAM.

CAUTION:
If you perform a full reset, your iPAQ Pocket PC returns
to its default settings and loses all information that is not recorded
in iPAQ File Storage.

To perform a full reset:
1. Press and hold the Power button.
