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.

I can not figure out how to connect my device to the internet Wi-Fi, I want to go on internet explorer and it won't connect


To send and receive e-mail with Inbox and view Web sites with Pocket Internet Explorer, set up a remote connection using a modem card or an Ethernet/LAN card.
To connect to the Internet with a modem card, you need a phone line, a dial-up Internet Service Provider, and an optional Single-slot or Dual-slot PC Card Expansion Pack or CompactFlash (CF) Card Expansion Pack.
*Insert your modem card
*From the Start menu, tap Settings
*Tap the Connections tab->Connections Icon-->Internet Settings-->Modify-->New
*Enter a name for the connection, select the modem type, and select the correct baud rate for that modem.

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.

I had the same problem with my iPAQ H3800. I bought a replacement battery on eBay for £7.49 and now it's fine.

Can only use when it's plugged in


I had the same problem, and did a lot of searching. Go to this site:

Download new BIOS for the unit, and follow the instructions very carefully. Depending on what kind of cables/dock you use, you might have to get creative in order to pull it off. It took a few times of trial and error, but now my unit works perfectly. Good luck.

My iPAQ won't turn on no matter what i do.


If you are saying it heats up the it sounds to me like the battery is not holding a charge anymore. Try to remove the batter and place the pocket pc in its cradle and turn it on if it works then you can be sure it's the battery. You can probably pick up a batery on Ebay real cheap. Or swing by your local BatteryPlus store and they can test the old battery and probably buy a new one in the store. I hope this helps Have a great day.

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)..

You need to sync the old one with your PC, then simply set up a new partnership with your new Ipaq and sync it with that same PC.
