PC restarts 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.
A full reset deactivates the battery. The power button does not
function until the battery is reactivated.

to its default settings and loses all information that is not recorded
in ROM.

1. Press and hold Application Buttons 1 (Calendar) and 4
(iTask) on the front of the unit and, at the same time, use the
stylus to press the Reset button on the bottom of your iPAQ
