Ever since I connected my second hand Nokia N95 to the computer and reformatted the memory card the phone will not work. The standby display is fine, and I can select icons on the left hand side, but trying to open a message or my contacts list or the menu doesn't work, and the battery and reception icons get larger and go orange. How do I fix it?

Nokia phones can be reformatted with a special three-stroke keystroke sequence on power-up. When turning the phone on, press and hold all these three keys at the same time: "GREEN/TALK" ," 3" and " * " when powering up the phone. When formatting begins, release the keys.
