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!

While holding down on the far left (calendar) and far right (iTask or Today) press in on the reset button (reset hole) with your stylus for about 2-3 seconds. After you see the screen fade, you can verify the hard reset by pressing the power button. If the device does not power on, then you have successfully reset you unit. To reactivate the battery you must either connect the iPAQ back to AC power or press the reset button again with your stylus
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.
In general, there's three types of charger you might need. Really ancient iPAqs used a round DC jack type charger, then there was a long time where all iPaqs used the same flat 22-pin connector. More recently, HP has moved to the same mini-USB plug used for a lot of mobile devices.

Activesync will only work for XP Operating Systems and earlier. Notes

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.
