    What operating system? XP or Vista?

    Do you see a quick flash of a blue screen when the system restarts like this?

    When you boot back into Windows, does the operating system state that it recovered from an error? If so, can you give me the details of this error, even if it seems like gibberish?

What you have is a system crash, if you installed new software or hardware uninstall it by going in to safe mode by presing F8 when booting, use sysem restore, if this does not work unistall any new Hardware ex: Video card, sound card printer, scaner. IF this does not work reinstal windows with your windos setup CD

Tablet shut down in the middle resetting. How do I finish the reset process?

Cry. Seriously, remove the drive and copy off of it any and all files that you want and need. Then format the unit and reinstall the operating system and programs from the backup disks that you have. No backup?

Now you are really ******* - see if you can get set from notebook manufacturer. If not check with your computer literate friends to see if any of them have OS installation disks.

How can i turn on my laptop in normal mode

Normally your can just turn on or restart your computer and it will automatically start to normal mode, however if someone set your computer to start to safemode it will stay that way, to undo that setting follow this steps:
Windows XP: Click start, click run type msconfig and click ok. On the system configuration window click on Boot tab and on the middle part uncheck safeboot then click apply, close and restart.
Windows Vista and Windows 7 Click start, on the search bar type msconfig and press enter. On the system configuration window click on Boot tab and on the middle part uncheck safeboot then click apply, close and restart.
If this didn't work there's a problem with the system file of your computer I suggest you ran a scan using an antivirus software because this kind of problem is usually being cause by a virus infection.

I have the same problem on mine. I'm sure its not a key stroke, because I get the same thing in portrait view, and I've also had it reset on me when I was renaming pictures. Also, I let it sit on the composing message screen for a while, and then tried to just type a letter and that set it off as well.

Troubles during the upgrad from V2 to V3

Hi Louna_st
There are apparaently some hardware upgrades to be done also to get the v2-v3 upgrade to work. try the following procedure to get the unit back to v2 again and at least get it operating.

To reload v2 turn off the MC-12. Hold down the four buttons in the middle column of the middle zone on the front panel and turn the MC-12 back on from the rear panel. Keep holding the buttons down until the Lexicon says 'waiting for download' on the front panel. When it is like that you should be able to reload v2.
