Though Palm PDAs are considered "legacy" by their new "supporters", HP, there is a download site for your Tungsten. Note that while HP seems to have forgotten that there was an "E", and only mention the E2, the Palm Support Palm Tungsten E2 Palm Desktop 4 1 4 and HotSync Manager... download should work... providing you are using the right OS on your computer. XP is listed in your owners manual, Vista usually works, Win7 is really dicey unless you bought one of the reconditioned/customized Tungstens that have become available over the internet lately, and win 8 might really become a deal-breaker. Good luck!
If it is not turning on at all then more then likely the battery is dead. Try plugging it into the charger and leaving it for over night. Then try turning it on. If that doesn't work you may need a new battery. I would not recommend doing this yourself s it involves some soldering. I had a friend of mine change my battery and it didn't quite work right after that. I am also including a link for the free chat feature that palm has. I have used it several times and have always had very good results. Best wishes.

You can try doing a hard reset. A hard reset will delete everything on your device. All your
data will be deleted, and formats, preferences and other settings are
restored to their factory default settings. Don't perform a hard reset
unless you've backed up your data, or you're willing to lose everything. Here is the link for directions for the Hard Reset:
Curiously, my setup is also set to "do nothing" for some apps... but changes on the Palm for those apps are saved to the PC, as they show up in Palm Desktop.
First thing to do is BACK UP YOUR "GOOD" BACKUP DATA ON THE PC. It is easy to accidentally lose everything there, and they you're screwed. Default location is C:\Program Files\PalmOne\XXXXXX, where XXXXXX is the first six letters of your Palm's User ID.
Next thing: Check in PD; are your contacts there? If so, they should reappear on your Palm after a hard reset.
If that does not work, set the conduits to "synchronize" and try again.
Sadly, too many people find out about backups the hard way.
