First do a restart with all extensions off (hold the pen about half an inch
from the edge of your screen) and see if that helps.
If that doesn't help you can try a brain wipe: erase everything that is on
your Newton (first the card by your Newton and than a hard reset to erase
everything on the Newton itself)
After that you do a full restore (leaving out stuff that was suspect, but if
your Newton was still ok when you made the backup, you might be ok with a
full restore)
Normally that should bring stuff back to normal again, however, I'm curious
about where you got error 77 since there isn't such an error on either the
Mac nor the Newton.
