You might want to soft reset it, and if it doesn't work then perform a hard reset.

The soft reset is done by poking the reset hole with a clip, and the hard reset should be the same, while at the same time pressing the on/off button.

I have moved this to the Pocket PC forum, because the N50 is not a notebook, but a Pocket PC PDA.

Welcome to Geekzone, please use plain English and normal capitalisation rules (e.g. "Please" instead of "PLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ")

Repeated cries of "HELP!" are also redundant around here - people are generally here for help - its a given.

I hope you resolve your problem. If/when you do, be sure to post the result/process on the forum to help anyone in the future who has the same problem as you.

Cheers, and have a great holiday weekend.
