1. Just connect the PDA and your Vista laptop the way you used to with WinXP (cradle, USB). The PDA will be detected as "Windows Mobile Device" and you should be automatically asked by Vista for sync configuration. You will have to get used to the "Windows Mobile Device" interface.

If you are using Windows XP, you can download Acivesync 4.5 from Microsoft's website, and by this software you can connect your PDA to your laptop (You'll need Windows Mobile Device Center if you're using Windows Vista). Note: Most probably you won't need the PDA's CD, when XP detects the USB device, if it asks for, point it to C:\Program Files\Microsoft ActiveSync\Drivers and it should install perfectly. But normally Both XP and Vista can recognize Dell Axim PDAs.
P 3300 , doesnot require any software in windows vista.
The active syn software that was used on windows xp is preinstalled on windws Vista. I have the same phone and it works fine without any software on windows vista .
you also have a connection manager on the PDA Itself ( Active sync ) Try syncing from the PDA as Well As The Computer Active Sync Program.
Also make sure if you have a firewall, you allow the PDA into it as a trusted Device.

1 more thing, try on/off the PDA whilst in sync mode.
Hope This Helps.
you shouldnt need a device driver for your pda to work along side with Vista, as Vista has it's own Windows mobile device centre which should run as soon as you connect your pda to a usb port.
If it doesnt run, then open up windows mobile device centre in programmes and check the mobile device settings as to whether usb is set to connect to the centre.
Microsoft has just released a mobile device center upgrade which is more stable and allows more types of files to be sychcronized.
Also, if you are using windows live onecare, check that the firewall allows Microsoft Mobile Device Center access through it as the mobile device makes a network connection to your PC
