do not waste your money on a new battery - i have been down the same road i even replaced the hard drive and some of the internal board connector ribbons in the hope that i could avoid having to spend out on repair- the life drive is inherently de funked you are not alone many users if not all have or will have the same issue- i would suggest giving up on it and finding a suitable replacement maybe the TX- unless you love it that much and money is no object.
oh and do nt waste your time looking to palm for answers i have also been there and nothing they suggested worked.

Yes, you can use it but DO NOT INSTALL "Documents to go". The version of this software is not compatible with Vista and Sync will hang at it.
If you have already installed it, just -> remove programs -> uninstall "Documents to go"
Disable (do nothing option) sync of "Documents to go" using the application, not from HotSync Manager.

This sounds like the issue where the LifeDrive is stuck in a loop. You can see how to break the device out of the system loop on the Palm Knowledge Base article (26419) located HERE.
Hope that helps get you up and running again!

Unfortunetly that usually indicates the harddrive has failed on you. Try a power on hard reset. It is the same as the hard reset but the power need to be plugged in as well.
If you look there are several places that will replace the drive with either a new drive of a compact flash card. The card is the way to go as it increases battery life but is about 10x faster acessing stuff.
