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.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the button at the centre of the top of the Axim to turn the device on.

  2. 2

    Remove the stylus from the right side of the Axim, then use it to push in the reset button on the back of the Axim, towards the left side.

  3. 3

    Push down and hold the power button while pushing in the reset button using the stylus.

  4. 4

    Release the power and reset buttons. A screen will appear that says "To clear all data in the memory... ."

  5. 5

    Press the contacts button. The contacts button is the first button to the left of the large button in the centre of the bottom of the Axim.
