You can also try taking out the batteries, holding clear and pressing on, then reinsert the batteries, hold clear and repeatedly press on.

I had the same problem. Here's whutcha do: You know that USB cable that came with your calculator that hooks up to your computer? You're gonna need it. First, take out one battery from your calculator. Then hold down the DEL button. Whilst holding it down, re-insert the battery. Now turn the calculator on. Hooray! It doesn't say Garbage Collecting anymore! Now it says "Waiting... Please install operating system now." Now you hook up your calculator to your computer with that cable. Go into TI CONNECT (if you don't have it, download it at TI's official website), and transfer the newest OS (also available at TI website). Now your calculator is working again. Woohoo.
