It happens, it is annoying but such is the life with PDAs.

Keep track of each item you install and don't install the one that doesn't work.

Also, you didn't NAME the PALM GAME so that sounds like it wasn't to be discussed?

In reply to: hello

There are situations where it does that. Sorry if I was unclear but since there is no game title no one can offer advice about that title and the E2.

I'm a PalmOS software author so I have some insight into this but for you to get the best replies think about what details would be needed. Also, contact the game's author as the E2 is one of the machines I had to tweak my application for. No, I can't do a thing for applications that I didn't write.

Tungsten E2 powers on and off to the Powered screen

Tungsten E2 powers on and off to the Powered screen

Tried a reset for 10 secs, but once I release the reset button, the sequence starts over again. I tried to hold down the start button with reset and that does not work.

Each time it will power ON for about 10 secs, then power OFF for three secons, then power ON again.

The alst thing added to the E2 was PIMSupportUpdater.prc and a reference to Palm 4.1.4.

Any idea how I can get this to stop, even if it means deleting everything on it.

Dear Bob
You already know about my experience with Palm. Could a Blackberry be my solution to pdf files? I am up for a new phone on ATT. I have always liked Motorola, but they seem a step behind Palm as far as phones go.
