I tried just about everything except removing all the cards and do the power-on-reset-button thing, but it did nothing when I did the same thing with the cards installed.  That was going to be next.

> Yes that often works. :)  Another method is to remove all the PC cards and batteries, plug it in, and hold down the reset button while holding down the power switch.  You will get the "do you want to erase all data" pop up and tap NO.  It will boot fine after that.
