Question about Palm Tungsten E Handheld

Tungsten E- Synch appears to work but nothing actually happens

I've been using a Tungsten E with a laptop running Windows XP Home for about a year. I recently replaced my old laptop with a Gateway, also running Windows XP Home. I downloaded the Palm desktop software and everything looked fine. I checked the conduit settings also fine. I ran the hotsync and that appeared fine too and unbelievably fast. That was yesterday. Today it was the same, except this time, I actually looked to see if anything had changed on the Tungsten or my desktop. No, they hadn't. I tried resetting the conduits so that, for example, teh desktop was set to overwrite the PDA and then vice versa. The synching took a bit longer but the result (lack of result) was still the same: no matter what I did, nothing changed on either the PDA or the laptop. Yet the log says that the synch operation was successful, everytime.

Laptop goes on some few minutes after being shut down.

you cannot blame windows xp because according to me it is such OS that it removes many problems of windows 7 and 7 and vista makes your pc much slow and many features dont work but windows xp is free from these errors.actually you hear the sound but nothing appears on the screen.this is because your cpu fan is running which takes somes time to stop.may be some problem of the hardware especially the mainboard.go to any repair shop and just get it checked.

Step 1 - Remove non bootable media
Remove any floppy disks, CD's or USB sticks from your computer and restart.
If NTLDR is missing error appears again, Do the Next Step.

Ensure you boot the system from the CD. The system will then boot into the Windows XP Setup.
At the welcome screen press 'R' to enter the Recovery Console
At the recovery console, select your Windows XP installation and enter your Administrator password if requested
At the command prompt issue the following commands and press ENTER after each command:
Remove your Windows XP CD and restart the computer
If the NTLDR is missing error appears again after reboot, Try the Next Step.
It is sometimes necessary to run or re-run the Windows XP Setup repair process
If it did not solve your issue re-insert your Windows XP CD and run Windows Setup again

Good Luck!!!!

I've been at this all day and still have'nt gotten my laptop to reset to a factory default setting. Can you please guide me through this process, step by step. Thankyou.

You can always restore the computer to a point when it was working fine.
For a laptop when you say factory defaults we've two things
1)Factory defaults on the Bios - as soon as u turn on the laptop we press F8 key or DEL(depends on the brand of the laptop) to get to the BIOS and you've an option to revert to the factory defaults.
It is advisable not touch the BIOS if you are not sure about this firmware
2)The operating system (lik windows xp,vista & 7) there is nothing called factory defaults for this all we've is a installation of the Operating system itself. However we can revert or restore back to last know good configuration mode.

How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:
  1. Start your computer.
  2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
  3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
  4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER

Picture while booting up, lost when home is loaded

The PC to TV converter is not setup for the correct conversion. When PC's start up, they use 800x600 screens which is close to TV standard, and they can synch. If the PC is set for a much higher resolution for a monitor, it is too far off to display. Check the converter. Or set the display settings to 800x600.

Synchronizing Tungsten T3 with desktop or laptop

I recently re-installed my T3 program

What do you mean?
  • Did you restore your T3 from a backup on the PC?
  • Did you install programs on the T3 using the PC's "quick install"?
Is Palm Desktop showing the correct Contact/To-do/Calendar Data?

How are the conduits set up? (From Palm Desktop, select Hotsync->Custom)
