  1. OK, here are the symptoms:

    - Dell Axim X50 with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition v4.21.1008 (Build
    - Active Sync 3.8 (Build 5004)
    - Outlook 2003 (11.6359.6408) SP1 (All Updates Installed)
    - Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP2 (All Updates Installed)

    I've tried soft reset, it just brings up the Dell splash screen until I
    finally hard reset. Never runs initial setup config stuff. (Tap stylus

    I've run the PST repair tool on my outlook file.

    I've Repaired my Outlook 2003 installation.

    I've seen many similar problems in the Google Groups archive...but no
    solutions that have worked.

    Help! :)
