I am new at this but I could use some help in diagnosing if my old casio has given up the ghost. It was on the cradle and I tried to make an entry when it appeared to be "locked up". I tried to reset it and it gave a low battery prompt. Usually I could go past this screen to my desktop. Now it goes to the Welcome to Windows CE screen where you initially set-up the device. It will not proceed past this screen. I assume that I have lost all information that was entered and now cannot even use the device. ? Can you help?

Re: casio E-100: Dead or alive?
If you had synched the device you have all your data on the desktop pc so I wouldn't worry too much except for some software which may require you to enter the reg info again.
You could try the following.
Remove both the batteries. Install the main battery. Install the backup battery preferably a NEW one.
Let the device charge to the full - until the green charging light goes out.
Switch on the device. It should now behave properly.
It would help if you generally avoid using the device when you get low battery warning. Especially the backup battery.

Kind of hard to diagnose the problem with so little information. But, in most cases the battery(s) need to be replaced. Be sure that you face them in the proper position(s) as indicated inside the battery compartment. If the remote is over 5 years old, it probably has given up the ghost.These days, new ones are not expensive. Less than $10.00 at discount stores.
Using Norton Ghost 9.0 is very good program to backup your System & Documents. You said the PC is dead then you want to restore back your System to a new PC. All you have to do is that Norton Ghost 9.0 CD is Bootable. Of course also your external hard drive are plug in it too. Manually you're going to open that Sv2i file to restore back again your old system but there are some programs that are not going to use. Like for example: System Drivers (Motherboard Driver, LAN, SOUND, etc.) but at least you have the Documents and the rest of the programs run again. I try it myself this kind of situation, I'm using Windows 2000 with Norton Ghost 9.0 version, and it's 100% works. Good luck! Hope i might give you some tip & idea. Tell me more about if you got a problem. Please rate me. Thank you.
I had this problem and read everybody response. Not convinced that my battery was flat I got out a MULTIMETER (Voltage tester) and measured the life of my battery.
Measurements confirmed that it had 3.9V across +/- terminals and 3.75V from T(-ve) to +ve terminals.
Ok odd - so I put the battery back in the camera and gave it another got, making sure I correctly orientated the battery. Press the ON button and low and much to my surprise my camera was alive again! Damn what did I do?
Before this the camera would not power on, and in the cradle it would not charge. However whilst in the cradle pressing the PHOTO cradle button would make images display and would give me access to the Sideshow menu. But that was it.
Now its as good as new. The above could have been coincidence however given the number of people with this issue I thought it at least worthy to report my experience.
You can salvage your old battery. Sounds crazy but you can take a 9 volt battery and jumper it to the old battery . It will put enough charge in the np-20 to make it start charging in the cradle. Takes about 20 seconds.. make sure you go + to + .. the size of the 9 volt fits perfectly.
Casio had a cable that had a serial port on one side and a connector to the E-1XX on the other side. Activesync works through this: I searched on Casio E-100 sync cable serial in Yahoo. It found two hits for a cable under $40. That should allow you to install programs over your serial port. I have persoanlly only used Etronics form the list of two and they did what they said they would do.
