Simple...

All you have to do is press and hold the power button and at the same time use a paper clip to gently press the reset button on the back of the unit. When the Palm Powered screen flashes on the screen, release the power button. It will them prompt you to press 'up' to verify a hard reset command. If you answer in the affirmative, it will wipe all data on the PDA and restore it to it''s original factory settings.

Hope this helps,
John

Go to the full user manual and look for page 603 which gives instructions for a "hard reset". Use with caution as all data will be lost. You'll want to hotsync the device first and store what you wish to keep. Good luck.
