Nivensm, I don’t think you need two exclamation marks and an all-caps ‘help’. ;o)

I’m not quite sure what cparr meant by ease the case from the back center to the corners. ?

But, anyway, I’ll give my story: After years of retirement, I went to turn on my iPAQ and no luck. Charged it over night (orange charge light blinked) but no luck. It would turn on in the cradle though. So I assumed it was the battery. I bought one on ebay for a little more than $9 shipped. I think Amazon might have been better because they include a little screwdriver and installation instructions for around $9 (not sure if shipping is included for that price though). Even though the four visible screws are hex, I used a very small flathead, no problem. Where I did have a problem is, what do I do from there? The four screws were out but the back cover wasn’t easily coming off. I didn’t want to force anything. Were there more screws I was missing? Maybe one under the sticker? Maybe the case had to be taken off a certain way. Etc., etc. I spent 1.5 hours looking on the web for a how-to on taking the 3765 apart! At best, I found a few dead links and a few scattered barely helpful threads. Nothing on youtube either, like I had hoped. :o( Anyway, I hope this helps anyone in my shoes:
Undue all four screws (no more). Like I mentioned, a very small flathead will work if you don’t have the correct star/hex tool. Make sure the stylus is ejected. Turn the little hidden button from ‘battery on’ to ‘battery off’. Then, just pick a spot along the edge and start carefully prying. No one spot is easier than another, they are all sealed pretty tightly. But once you do get a bit of separation in one spot, it gets easier. Move your way around the unit. There are quite a bit of snaps. Once the two halves are free, open the two halves carefully/slowly because the two halves will be connected via the battery ribbon. The battery is double taped to the back case and the ribbon connection goes across to the main internals located in the front half of the case. Unplug the battery ribbon connection and then separate the two halves. The battery unplugs easily and the battery comes off the back half case but not without using a butter knife or something similar to get down in there between the battery and case to push through the double sticky tape. Install is reverse, obviously, but you need to decide how to attach your battery to the back wall. I used a few drops of silicone glue.

This has a link to take apart directions but the link appears to be broken. Bummer. http://www.directfix.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=HP1024&Category _Code=BATT

Good luck.

    Update. As of today (05-24-10), the link I provided at directfix.com to take apart the iPAQ has been restored. I didn't think my e-mail to them would work but it did! :o)

You'll need a very small flat screwdriver and ease the case open from the back center to the corners. Then the sides should pop loose.

My IPAC hx2790b will not recognise my 4gb sd card


PCM, Backup the data on the card to a computer. Format the card. Try on your iPAC. If still not recognized. the format in a different computer. Try on your iPAC. Repeat the process till it is recognized by your phone. When and if you get fed up of trying, throw the card away as useless/unusable.

Most iPaqs use a small AC Adapter This model will still need an AC Adapter, because it does not draw any current from USB to charge.
