The Newton should start with a dead backup battery. In fact it starts with
backup battery at all. However, occasionally Newtons are kind of unwilling
to start
with batteries, usually I'm able to save this problem by hooking them to an
adapter and do a hard reset (which I can never remember how to do, I think
it is
a)hold down power switch b) press and release reset button c) wait for
and release power switch).
You needn't reinstall the os as it is in ROM> Any os updates you might have
will probably be gone.
