I decided today to update my Drivers - ROM etc - on my iPAQ and was baffled by it not responding after the update, I had put it in the cradle to re-activate the battery. I soft reset it and with no result I then Hard reset it - also no result. I removed the battery and tried a soft reset, with still no result, and all the while putting it in the cradle to re-set the battery. All the time the iPaq would not connect with the computer active sync. I don't know what to do, can someone please help

The OS on the iPAQ is corrupted. Since the iPAQ can no longer obtain a successful connection with the computer so that ActiveSync recognizes it, there may not be any way to restore the iPAQ to working order.
This happened a lot when people attempted to update their iPAQs from a Windows 7 or Vista computer. If you still have access to a Windows XP computer, go install ActiveSync to it and see if the iPAQ can make a successful connection to the computer so the computer and ActiveSync recognizes it as a window mobile device. If it does, then you can try installing the update again from the XP computer.
