Occasionally, you may need to reset the HP Jornada; for
example, you may reset after you restore data from your desktop
PC or when the operating system stops responding.
There are two methods of resetting:
Â· Soft resetâ€”A soft reset (also called â€śwarm bootâ€ť) is similar to
restarting your desktop PC. It restarts the operating system
and preserves any saved data, but loses any unsaved data.
Â· Full resetâ€”A full reset (also called â€ścold bootâ€ť) restores the
HP Jornada to its original state, erasing all information,
including saved and unsaved data, you have entered.
To ensure the safety of your information in case a full reset is
necessary, you should regularly back up your data to your
desktop PC (using Windows CE Services) or to a CompactFlash
Card (using the HP backup application).
Perform a soft reset after restoring data from a backup file or
when the HP Jornada appears to be â€śfrozenâ€ť or â€ślocked up.â€ť
To perform a soft reset
1. Use the stylus to press the Reset button on the back of
the HP Jornada, as illustrated above.
Hard reset - Full reset
Perform a full reset only when the HP Jornada does not respond
to a soft reset. A full reset erases all data you have entered,
including all files, system settings, and programs you have
installed. If you have forgotten your password, you also need to
perform a full reset.
Performing a full reset erases all files, programs, and data you
have entered. You can restore only data that has been backed
up to your desktop PC or CompactFlash Card.
To perform a full reset
1. Disconnect the AC adapter from the HP Jornada.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Use the stylus to press the Reset button for at least 5
4. Reinsert the battery.
5. Restore data to the HP Jornada from your most recent
