what you need to try to do is reinstall the blackberry OS (operating system) on your device.
Assuming you have Verizon
First install Blackberry desktop manager it should be in the CD that came with the phone.
If you can't find it download it <a href="https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads/contactFormPreload.do?code=A8BAA56554F96369AB93E4F3BB068C22&dl=5E695511C1F9656B8E3E63DAB060F469">HERE</a>
then download the OS software for your phone <a href="http://vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry/download.aspx?ct=personal">HERE</a>
Connect your phone to your computer and start Desktop manager.
click on application loader, on update software click start, click ok on USB pin selection.
when you get to the device backup and restore options, click settings and make sure backup options box is unchecked and device data boxes are both checked, click ok, click next, skip the email signup stuffs,and finish.
After the software is installed the phone should boot back up.

Have you tried pulling the battery? Often times my Storm has locked up and nothing worked. The only way to really do a restart, is by pulling the battery.
-Take the battery out and wait 1 minute. -Replace the blackberry and wait for Operating System to startup -Test
If this doesnt fix the problem, you may have a problem unit and you should take it in to the Verizon Wireless store.

Well this could be due to a dead battery even though your battery says its full its really not putting out enough amps to turn on the unit replacing the battery fixes 99 percent of these issues.
thanks and please rate.

Testimonial: "this is the 2nd time this has hapened and last timethey had to replacemy handset,so im desperatly hopingits just the battery this time.how can u know?"
This may work. Mine was doing the same thing this morning so I was looking through forums to no avail.
I have been using my USB charger since I got my Storm as I left my wall charger in another city and only just got it back...
The phone would do the same thing when I tried to charge (off USB) depsite pulling out battery etc.
I went home and plugged into wall charger and left it (maybe 20 minutes?) and a battery with a lightning bolt followed by the loading page and it is now back to life...
Hope this works out for you!!
