I have recently pulled out my ipaq 3835 again after not using it for a long time and I
have a problem. The ipaq only works when plugged into the AC adapter.
As soon as I pull the ipaq away from the power adapter... it locks up. I can soft reset and it still locks up. I can plug it in again... and it works. Basically, the PDA is only usable when plugged in.
My guess is that there is something wrong with the battery.
I would say def. its the battery thats dead! Did a quick search for batteries and found a lot and costs about 10-30$ for a battery and some include a charger as well. Worth spending if you gonna use it daily!

No, you cannot use Windows Vista on your iPAQ. I am not 100% sure but, I have seen products made before the whole HD SD cards not being able to use them so, I would stick to the regular SD cards which go to 2GB.
Activesync will only work for XP Operating Systems and earlier. Notes
To find out whether your version of Windows Vista or Windows 7 is 32-bit or 64-bit, click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Properties. The version is listed after System Type.
You can use Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 only with phones running Windows Mobile 2003 or later. ActiveSync and Windows Mobile Device Center won’t work with Windows Embedded CE 4.2 or 5.0, Pocket PC 2002, or Smartphone 2002 devices. (To see which Windows Mobile operating system you’re using, and if your phone doesn’t have a touch screen, click Start > Settings > About. If your phone has a touch screen, click Start > Settings > System tab > About.) To sync content to any of these devices, you must use a USB or serial cable and your computer’s Internet connection and File Explorer.
You must use Microsoft Outlook 2002, Outlook 2003, or Office Outlook 2007 to sync your e-mail, contacts, tasks, and notes from your computer.
You must use a USB cable to connect your phone to your computer the first time you use Windows Mobile Device Center to sync.
The 3835 did not have WiFi capability so you can't get online. Probably not worth messing with unless you're a real techie. I think there is a distro of Linux that can run on it if you want to play with that.
This could be due to a few issues, try these soloutions in order below:
1) If you have a jacket connected to the ipaq it could be preventing the ipaq from locating correctly on the connector. Remove jacket and try insering again.
2) Check that active sync is set up to detect the device on the usb port. The cradle for the ipaq may have a serial and usb connector. Ensure that just the usb connector is attached to your laptop. Try connecting again.
3) You may need to uninstall the USB cradle if it was connected before installing active sync. Try the following steps if this was the case:
a) unplug the USB cradle
b) uninstall active sync
c)Click start then click control pannel then click system. Then click on the hardware tab.
Look for the device under USB, right click on the device and then select uninstall.
d) restart the laptop
e) Install active sync
f) ONLY after active sync has installed you can now plug the cradle back into the usb socket.
g) Now connect the ipaq, it should now detect it.
Sounds like it might be time to test things in a vanilla fresh setup..........
-Backup your system via iPAQ backup to an SD card (or ipaq file store if you have room)
Warning, following will delete all main memory and set back to factory default!
-do a hard reset (hold in power and reset for 20 seconds)
-Test programs again, see if it acts the same.
You can then restore your setup via iPAQ backup again if needed.
