Is the Ipaq RX3115 compatible with Windows Vista?

See header line - is the RX3115 iPaq compatible with Vista?

    I am just getting around to trying to reinstall iPAQ software to get my older iPAQ to work with my newer laptop. I got a message during the software upload that the Microsoft ActiveSync version that was to be installed in the process wasn't available. I downloaded a newer ActiveSync (4.5) and it doesn't seem to be compatible with the iPAQ. Any suggestions?



    (The iPAQ has frustrated me in other ways but I was going to give it another chance. Now it's looking more and more like an expensive but nonfunctional piece of hardware.)

Yes, but you will need to download Windows Mobile Device Center - free from Microsoft,
which replaces ActiveSync
ActiveSync is not compatible with Vista

I AM TRYING TO SYNC MY HP iPAQ TO MY COMPUTER, BUT AN MESSAGE ERROR SAYS THAT 'RAPI.DLL' IS MISSING. WHERE I CAN DOWNLOAD 'ACTIVE SYNC' AND 'RAPI.DLL'


You can download the Microsoft ActiveSync from:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/en-us/help/synchronize/activesync-download.mspx

This package contains the rapi.dll inside it.

Note: Microsoft ActiveSync is for windows XP and earlier version only. In case of Microsoft VISTA download Windows Mobile Device Center.

Is a compaq ipaq h3835 compatable with vista


No, you do not need an upgrade. You'll need to be download only "Windows Mobile Device Center" to your Vista PC instead of ActiveSync. (ActiveSync is not compatible with Vista, instead Microsoft changed the software a bit called "Windows Mobile Device Center" and can be downloaded from Microsoft's website.) Your Vista PC should also recognize your ipaq PPC without needing any driver CD. I hope it helps.

Where can I get a free upgrade for my HP Ipaq rx3115 for windows Vista?


For compatibility with Vista it should only require installing the newest version of ActiveSync which is free from Microsoft's site. But, If you mean the Pocket PC OS Revision, I don't think you can legally update the OS beyond a version number (Like 3.3 to 3.5) and if your not able to sync with certain Office components, etc. because of the OS, there isn't much choice legally but to buy the upgrade.

IPAQ rx3115 continuously, "screen alignment",


If I understand correctly your problem, the touch screen of your PDA is not working.

Well, this is a common IPAQ failure. When happens, the only options to repair it are:

1. Soft reset of the PDA. If still does not work, then go to next step.

2. Replace the top digitizer glass.

It requires a very skillful person to do it. If you have not experience with fixing electronic devices, then I do suggest you to send it to repair.

Besides that is necessary to open it, you will require a soldering iron, and desolder the digitizer part and remove it from the LCD screen, which if is not done properly with the right tools, it's easy to damage the LCD screen assembly.

Also, if it's not opened right, is possible to damage permanently the mainboard if is bent or warped.

Also, even though there are a lot of cheap digitizer replacement parts on-line (mainly from China), they have a compatibility issue that prevents to use them in the RX3115 (or RX3715) PDAs.

I have nothing against Chinese manufactured parts, but after buy around 10 digitizers in the last couple of years for different Ipaq PDAs, I found out that only 3 worked fine, so I know what I am talking about.

Best regards,
