The memory on your HP Jornada is allocated between storage memory and program memory. Windows for Pocket PC automatically manages the allocation between storage and program memory; however, in some situations, such as when memory is low, it may not be able to automatically adjust the allocation. If you receive a message stating that storage or program memory is unavailable, try the following solutions.
HP Jornada 540 Series Pocket PC - Resolving "Storage or Program Memory is Unavailable" Messages
Increasing storage memory
You can try any or all of these solutions to increase storage memory:
Buy an optional CompactFlash memory card, and move files from internal memory to the card. (For more information on CompactFlash cards, see the CompactFlash cards section in chapter 8 of the User’s Guide that came with this product.). Click here to find and purchase a compatible memory card.
Delete unnecessary files.
Remove Web pages stored for offline viewing in Internet Explorer folders.
note:Wireless Internet use requires separately purchased modem and service contract. Check with service provider for availability and coverage in your area. Not all Web content is available.
Remove programs you no longer use (click here to go to the "To stop programs using the Memory control panel" section below.)
Increasing program memory
You can try any or all of these solutions to increase program memory:
Use HP task switcher or the Memory control panel to stop programs you are not currently using. In most cases, programs automatically stop to free needed memory. However, in some situations, such as when a dialog box is waiting for a response, the program may not be able to stop automatically.
Disconnect the sync cable or remove your HP Jornada from the cradle; remove the CompactFlash card (if installed), and reset your HP Jornada. With the stylus, press the red button (on the back of the HP Jornada near the top) briefly. This does the same thing as rebooting your desktop PC. This will temporarily free some storage memory so that it can be re-allocated as program memory.
note:All unsaved information will be lost after a soft reset.

To stop programs using HP task switcher
