Thanks everybody! I guess what was wrong with my laptop got fixed with 4.1. It seems I had the 4.0 software.
One odd thing though. So after I got all the sync software loaded on my PC & laptop I tried to access the internet wirelessly with my Axim. It took me over a half hour to get it to work.
I kept playing with the router settings and doing soft resets and finally it worked, but I think there's something buggy going on. The Axim would read my network, but then refused to connect. Well anyway I did get it working, for now I guess. lol
Perhaps thin cardboard & tape, or even just tape? :smileyhappy:
If Dell no longer has the means to send you one the only thing I can think of off hand is possibly buying a used whole unit on an auction site. You'd at least have a spare.
I grew up in the BPC era (before PC) and there used to be a saying among the old timers, "if you can't make it you don't need it." Anymore we are so dependent on purchased replacement parts, if not whole unit replacement, I wonder if part of the reason companies stop making parts available is so you'll HAVE to upgrade.
Maybe you'll be lucky enough to find a non working unit on eBay or something. Other than that and phoning service centers in hopes that they just happen to have a spare part, or even as you are doing just posting here, you may get lucky.
Good luck with your quest!
I looked for a CF type memory and couldn't find one....maybe you know the link of where they are at?
How big of a hurry are you in? I'll just give you the Circuit City page, but they don't have a great deal today. Check the electronic store websites or www.pricegrabber.com or something.
