Dead pilot returns to half information pilot

My Pilot (professional) was not acting funny at all. One day I turned it on to find the logo screen come up and then the Pilot died. After checking batteries (which were fully juiced) I replaced them and the Pilot turned on again but only had half of the info in it. Any comments?

Yeah, I got the same thing. I was on a plane, passing the time and playing a game, when the screen displayed a weird garbage pattern. All data on my Palm VX was gone at that point, and attempts to recover via hard reset, etc were to no avail. I tried to re-sync when I got home, but the sync failed, and eventually I had to return it. My guess is that the O/S died, possibly due to some corruption. I couldn't even get it to stay on and stable for more than a minute or two before it started flaking out again. A call to 3Com got me authorized to exchange it at the CompUSA where I originally got it. Too bad about my data, though...
