Question about Handspring Visor Edge Handheld
I recently bought a new Compaq pc - loaded Palm Desktop on it and attempted a sync - about 20% through step 2, the system re-boots (this is reproducable) - Sooooo I tried to download a newer copy of the desktop (I'm using 4.0.1, but thought that there may be something wrong with my copy) but need the serial number; however, I purchased the Edge refurb from Handspring, and some clown marked over the serial number with a marker. I've tried to just remove all the Palm Desktop & Sync software, but although the program goes through the motions of uninstalling, everything's still there. I can't even get this junk off the pc so I can upgrade to another brand of PDA - HELP!!!

I had to fool PalmOne, but I fixed my problem I couldn't download the current version of 4.0.1 because some clown at Handspring painted over my serial number. But I also have a Visor Prism (yeah, I'm just a sucker!) and used THAT model and serial number to get the software from PalmOne. Then I re-installed the desktop from the CD, uninstalled it (the uninstall did work this time) and re-installed the downloaded version of Desktop - would you believe it, it WORKED! Yippee! I even cancelled my order for a Compaq PDA (the Edge isn't all that good, but it IS paid for!) - Hope you get your problem solved like I did -

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.
