So I finally decided to perform a hard reset on my 700p & re-install apps only to the point where the system stays stable. I've been using my Treo with a PC & a Mac for about two months now.

After performing the hard reset, uninstalling Palm Desktop, deleting all old profile information, & re-installing Palm Desktop, I now can't perform a USB HotSync with my PC laptop. When I plug in the USB cable, I get repeating beeps indicating a USB device being plugged in & being unplugged (all while the cable remains plugged in). I finally get a message on the Treo stating "The connection between your handheld computer and the desktop could not be established. Please check your setup and try again."

I can still HotSync with the same cable with my Mac. I've tried both USB ports on my laptop, & both ports work successfully with other devices.

Anyone have any ideas?
