You should have a cable that plugs in to the bottom of the PDA (could be part of a base station).  This will have a connector on the other end of it for the PC.  The problem may be, if it is that old, that it is a serial connector ("D" shaped) as opposed to a USB connector.
If it is, and your PC does not have a serial port then you can try buying a Serial to USB converter (try your local PC World).  These converters can sometimes be difficult to configure.  Another alternative is to buy a serial card to go inside your pc.  I would recommend this option.

Computer stopped working


I would remove the access panel to get to the inside where the power cord plugs in, maybe it just needs to be pushed back into place. Once you can get your pictures off, take the PC to Goodwill. Old computer are not worth the repair. These days you can get a new desktop PC for under $500.

Compaq cq60 wont start


My first step would be to take the laptop apart again. If it worked after the new fan installation, then can you install the old one (bearing the noise for a bit) and see if it turns on. Then replace the old with the new and if it fails, then perhaps the new fan is grounding your system out.

Good luck
Keep us posted.

Where can I go to buy OS software for my Compaq Pocket PC H3835? I have a new computer and cannot find my Compaq OS disk in order to install. I've moved a few times since I purchased my iPAQ and beleive...


OS software can be purchased via Best Buy, Wal-mart, or any computer electronics store. If you're just looking to reset your PC to original settings, their may be a recovery application buried in the ROM of your PC.

My Compaq died....


One other thing you can try, open the case and disconnect the power supply from the motherboard. Let it sit for 10 minutes, hook it back up and plug in and turn it on.

Let me know how it works out.

No Power!!


Double check the switch in the back of the pc on the power supply. If their is a switch, you can try it in both positions. It is possible their is no switch, older compaq's are iffy. The switch will be black. Also check the 110/230 switch. I don't know what country you live in, however you may need to make sure that switch is in the appropriate spot. 110 for USA and 220/230 for UK

Also, try unplugging your pc. Let it set for about 1 minute. Plug it back in and try again.

Instaling New Software


Don't know about that software specifically, but of those 3 choices, try the Compaq. The Axim's processor is backwards compatible with the one in the Compaq. (Well, it's the same as the one in the LATEST model HP, but usually when you see those three choices, it's to signify the 3 different processors each had. HP's latest model used the same as the Compaq, but their older models didn't..) Hopefully they aren't checking for specific devices, but just processor type.. Now, there is some software that is written specifically for the Compaq Ipaq because of it's video chipset, but not much.. (Tomb Raider comes to mind)..
