Resetting the MobilePro

Occasionally you may need to reset your NEC MobilePro. For instance,
you may need to reset after restoring data from your host PC, after
modifying the MobilePro’s configuration, when you are unable to power
on using the Power button, or when the operating system stops
responding.
The NEC MobilePro is equipped with two reset buttons, designed for use
depending upon specific conditions. The two reset buttons are:
! Soft Reset Button — The soft reset button allows you to restart the
NEC MobilePro operating system while preserving any saved data.
This method is similar to a “warm boot” on your host PC.
! Full Reset Button — The full reset button restores your system to its
original shipping configuration, erasing all information that you have
entered.
Note    To ensure the safety of your information at all times, you should
perform regular backups of your MobilePro information to your host PC.
For more information, see the section in Chapter 3, “Backing Up and
Restoring Data.”

Using the Soft Reset Button

Before using the soft reset button to reset the MobilePro, close any open
files or applications, if possible. When you soft reset the MobilePro, you
may lose open/unsaved files.

2.  Power on the MobilePro.

Using the Full Reset Button
Use the full reset button only when your unit does not respond after doing
all of the following:
! Installing a charged battery.
! Connecting the unit to an AC power source.
! Verifying that the battery lock is in the locked position.
! Using the soft reset button to reset the system.

Using the full reset button to reset your
MobilePro returns your unit to its original shipping configuration. All data
and applications are erased from RAM. All open/unsaved files are lost and
all user specific data such as contacts, tasks, etc., are erased.
You can only restore data that has been backed up to your host PC. For
more information, see the section in Chapter 3, “Backing Up and Restoring
Data.”

The full reset button is located inside of the main battery’s bay. Follow
