When I tried to turn on my m500 this morning, it did the usual with the start up screen, and then instead of going to the song last listened it came up with a screen that said 'updater' in small font in to the bottom left hand corner. I have tried to update the firmware, and it didn't seem to work, if anyone can help please?

Have you tried the screen recalibration; by touching
the upper right of the screen for 30 seconds or so while turning on the
unit. This usually cures the problem. Next try; sliding the "Power" key to the left position and hold it for eight to ten seconds to reset the Garmin. I have attached a link to the Garmin manuals for your 255W. Once you get it going you should update your unit also at the Garmin site. The updates will fix the software glitches.

Start your PC in safe mode, to do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as soon as you turn the power on. This will then bring up an "options" screen listing boot in safe mode, safe mode with network support etc. Just use safe mode. If it goes directly to windows instead - shut it off and try again til u get the safe mode screen. The arrow keys control the selection to choose.When it starts in safe mode a black screen will usually appear with a bunch of writing, this is normal, after that it may "hang" for as long as 5 minutes, before coming up with a login screen. Sometimes hitting enter or escape will bring up the login screen faster. When you have a login screen, login and disable the updates using the software control options for the software that is trying to update. You might also go to control panel, administrator options, then services and disable automatic updates temporarily. When your pc starts in safe mode - it starts with minimal drivers and does not run updates- this allows you to change settings. You can then reboot normally and it should start properly without updating before starting.
Your screen is probably damaged, and will need to be replaced, but try these:
