After installing dashboard (a compaq program) and restarting my PDA it seems it is frozen on the screen that appears when you do a soft restart.
A hard reset won't help, what can i do to get it working again ??

Re: Compaq 3835 Fails to start after installing dashboard

Have you tried to remove the battery for a few moments? Hopefully if you try this, all your data was backed up, because removing the battery will lose your data. But, if the system is stuck at the "welcome" screen, then removing the battery wipes out the memory. The system will be just like right out of the box (unless you flashed the rom with an updated version of the Operating system, that won't roll back by just removing the battery).

If your not sure what I meant by flashing the rom, it is the upgrade process from windows 2002 to 2003 version. That is the only change that will not be lost by removing your battery.

Good Luck!

Online with a Compaq iPAQ H3835 Pocket PC

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.

XP re-boots during first sync of Visor Edge

Unfortunately, there is no change to this behavior when you download a new copy of the 4.0.1 desktop software. I have the same issue, only it used to crash my system about every 5th or 6th sync. Now it seems to do it every time. I also ran the utility which eliminates the registry entries, and then reloaded the hotsync/desktop software, but the crashes continue. I too, have a Presario. I'm wondering if we have a driver problem with the PC.
