Press and hold down the Calendar and iTask buttons.
While holding down these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the iPAQ Pocket PC for about two seconds.
When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release the Calendar and iTask buttons first, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
If the devices were upgraded to WM5.0, you'd need to perform a clean reset:
1) Press and hold the Calendar button, the Power button, and the Messaging button.
2) While holding these buttons, use the stylus to lightly press the Reset button on the bottom of the HP iPAQ.
3) When the Pocket PC screen begins to fade, release all of the buttons, and then remove the stylus from the Reset button.
The HP iPAQ restarts and powers on

You may need to get someone to lend a hand.

I leaned on the two buttons (the calendar and iTask ones) for about a minute while pushing the reset button, then released calendar and itask, then released reset, then repowered the system. It asked me to align the screen, set the timezone, etc., then reestablished the HP Protect Tools. Driving me crazy here. Anyone have a hack for this? Take it apart and short the main board? Anything?

Don't know how I missed this thread before: "How to regain factory settings on my ipaq hx2110?" (http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupp
- when it asked for a PIN, he entered it wrong, three times.
- it then asked a security question (your favorite band when you were growing up). He answered wrong three times
- it then said it was going to restore factory default settings. the iPAQ reset, and then came up to a different "Protect Tools" screen telling me it was resetting, and not to disconnect the AC
- after about two minutes, it reset again and behaved like an out-of-the-box system- it had me set up the system and then took me to the main page, WITHOUT PROTECTTOOLS ACTIVE!
