Well it appears that I have 2 P-600's with bad pcmcia slots. I've tried both Win2K and WinXP on both of them and they will not power up any card that I put into the slot. Device manager is clean, but cards don't work. Anyone know if these machines have had problems with the pcmcia slots going bad on them? I also found out that Win2K works much better with the pen than does WinXP. Win2K much more touch sensitive and works much better. Let me know if you guys have heard anything about these PCMCIA slots, I'm sending these 2 units back to the guy and he is going to send me the last one he has.
