When you smell burning silicon thats a sure sign you are going to need a new one. Sounds like some pretty severe damage to chips if it smelled up the whole car. But the battery charging light still working is a good sign, which means its not a total loss.

HP Jornada will not access my secure network

your router must allow this.
if no idea at all what rounter you have
the SSID is just broadcasted name, use a personal made up name like ROVER2, or your dogs name, etc.
the WEP is , no longer safe, web is very hacked.
but many old HP relic devices many only do WEP.
and most routers now deleted or is turned off by default (wise they are)
so turn on WPA
then set a passphrase, matching the router.

Duplicate alarms

I may be off base but might the problem be as simple as the frequency being set for the alarm. What I mean to say is, might the default reminder time for the alarm be set to such a low setting like sec's or minutes leaving the unit to repeat the alarm rapidly prior to your being able to dismiss/snooze. Good luck.

CF for Jornada 525

The only advice that I could offer is to try those 2 Compact Flash cards on someone elses PocketPC. If they don't work then there must be something wrong with the cards. However, if they both work then there must be a problem with the CF slot on your Jornada. Try to test out some CF cards from an electronic store if they will let you. Yes, you do not need drivers for CF cards. A preferred CF list? Whomever told you this is blowing you off. People use all brands of CF cards from Viking, Scandisk, Lexar, Mr. Flash, etc. Sometimes there is a bad card and other times the CF slot is bad so check both of those out...

Jornada 525 and Windows Media Player 9

Only a hint. Did you check the small print via the downloads for Pocket PC on the Microsoft web pages? If you download from the regular OS pages they don't mention that certain Pocket PC generations are not supported. I noticed this but only on Media Player downloads fom the pocket PC pages but it takes time to find this more detailed info. lt.mspx

Clock out of control

I have a Jornada 568 but I've never seen the behaviour you describe. Is it possible that you damaged or caught a small part when you installed the new battery? Your new battery, was that the small round battery or a battery pack on the back of the unit. "Resetting to Factory defaults" suggests that there is no power at all, doesn't it? If the small round watch battery is dead then that might effect the clock.
