I have a Palm that has seemingly lost it's OS. During a download of an upgrade to a newer version OS, I encountered a "blue screen" on my desktop computer. When I got back to restart the download, nothing worked on the PDA. It would not hard or soft reset, hotsync, turn on/off or respond to any keys on the keypad. I tried to reload the contents of my backup card but there was no response to it either. The only thing that remains is a small, red square in the upper corner of the unlit blank screen.

How can I get an OS back in this thing, if possible, without sending it back to Palm and paying their high cost for service (last I checked, it was $125 ... I only paid $150 for the unit new)?

Hi, rayde. Welcome to Geeks to Go!

Were you upgrading your desktop OS with the Palm in the sync cradle?

Have you tried taking the battery out? That should shut it off at least. Then put the battery back in and try another hard reset if necessary.
