The best solution for this problem is to format the phone memory. U may think format will erase all applications but it is false . The essential softwares like mp3 player, camera, etc. are not erased.
The process for format of phone is :
1) turn off the mobile.
2) press and hold ( green dial button + 3 keypad + * ) and turn on the phone holding these 3 buttons(dial button + 3 + *) until formatting screen appears.
3) When formatting screen appears, just leave the keys. and ur phone is formatted now.
4) When finished, it asks for restart of phone.
5) Restart ur phone, and ur phone is ready.

The memory card does not responsible for the phone startup failure message. it happens when improper symbian application start ups setup after installation. actually phone starts from phone memory data. Due to improper memory card and phone memory sync this happens. You can resolve this problem removing mmmc card. this is temperary solution. if this happens often then format phone memory. Re-install applications. Bofore formating bacup all phone data. if phone is not started then you can go hard reset "Press 3 & *& dail & switch on button simultaneuosly"
