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.

  • Press and hold the Power button.
  • While holding the Power button, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom right side of the HP iPAQ for about five seconds.
