You can reset the Dell Axim X51V personal desktop assistant back to factory settings by performing what is known as a hard reset. A hard reset deletes and resets all the memory on the PDA. You may need to do a hard reset if your PDA is malfunctioning due to a virus or operational problems. You should always back up your data before doing a hard reset so you do not lose anything valuable.
