If you remove battery door, the TINspire CAS cannot be turned ON.
You may try to reset the unit by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit. If that does not solve the problem, you may try to reinstall or update the OS.

Anyway, here is what the Texas Instruments Knowledge Base has to say about reinstalling the OS. Hope it helps.

What steps are required to reinstall the TI-Nspire family operating system?

To reload the device’s OS using a computer with TI-Nspire Computer Link:
• Connect the TI-Nspire device (with the Nspire keypad) to the computer using the USB Standard A to Mini B cable.
• Open the TI-Nspire Computer Link software. The select device dialog should appear, and detect the device.
• Either drag the OS file (available in the ‘downloads’ area at onto the TI-Nspire File Browser portion of the window, or click Tools -> Install OS.
To reload the device’s OS using another TI-Nspire or TI-Nspire CAS device:
• Connect the two devices using the USB Mini A to Mini B cable. The end marked A should be inserted into the sending unit, while the end marked B should be inserted into the receiving unit.
• On the sending unit, access the document chooser by pressing [Home] [7]. Once in the document chooser, press [Menu] and choose 9:Send OS…
NOTE: Users can only send an OS to a unit of the same model. Users cannot send an OS from a TI-Nspire to a TI-Nspire CAS.
Please see the TI-Nspire guidebooks for additional information.

The calculator writes 8 all over

During operation of the TI-Nspire handheld it may be necessary to reset the device. Circumstances which may require a reset include; keys not responding, device will not turn on or a garbled display. To reset the device:
• Remove the keypad (for TI-Nspire with ClickPad, TI-Nspire with TouchPad, and TI-Nspire CAS with Touchpad) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS with ClickPad) and remove at least one battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5 seconds, reinsert the batteries but do not turn the handheld on.
For the TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handheld units with ClickPad:
• Hold down [home] [enter] [P].
• While holding these keys press [on].
For the TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handheld units with TouchPad and the TI-Nspire CX and TI-Nspire CX CAS:
• Hold down [doc] [enter] [EE].
• While holding these keys press [on].
Please Note: For TI-Nspire Family handheld units that contain rechargeable batteries you can alternatively hold the above keys while pressing the [reset] button on the back of the handheld rather than removing the battery for 2-5 seconds.
• The device will boot up as in the previous reset, but will display a menu with the following options. Please try options 2, 3, and 4 in that order.
• 1: Cancel - The most non-intrusive reset option; no changes are made, the unit restarts.
• 2: Delete Operating System - The operating system will be deleted without deleting any documents on the system.
• 3: Delete Document Folder Contents - This will delete the user's documents, but will not delete the OS. Selecting this option is the same as using the RESET hole on the back of the unit.
• 4: Complete Format - This will delete the OS and all documents for a total wipe of the handheld.
Please note that the second and fourth option will require that the OS will need to be reinstalled

How to get the ti nspire cx to give square root answers

You can not achieve this with the Ti-nspire cx. Only the CAS version will give the square root form. On the CAS there is an option in the settings called "EXACT" under calculation mode. The cx does not have this mode.

Making PI a variable in TI-82 Calculator

The calculator does not have a Computer Algebra System or CAS: It cannot handle non numerical quantities. Every letter symbol must have a value stored in it prior to being used. If no value is stored in a letter symbol, value 0 is assigned to it. Sorry.
As to calling Pi a variable, I would not got that far, even if the calculator would give me 2Pi.
TI calculators that have a CAS are the TI92 Plus, the Voyage 200 PLT, and the TI Nspire CAS, TI Nspire CX CAS.

I can't get my TI-nspire calculator to give me the answer in anything but decimals, for example the sin(pi/4) should be something like radical 2 / 2 but instead i get .7 ??? help

The TI Nspire has two calculation modes: Auto and Approximate. In Auto mode the calculator will attempt to do exact calculations. If that is not possible then the results are displayed as decimals. The non CAS version does not do symbolic manipulations, only the CAS version can do that.
However if you are actually using the CAS calculator, then go to the settings ( Settings>General ) and change the settings for the calculatoion mode to EXACT. The Non Cas does not have that third choice.

How do I factor using the fx-115 ES calculator? would a problem like 9x^2+24x+16-Z^2 be solvable on this calculator? If not, does Casio sell any calculators that would help me factor this equation?

No, your calculator cannot factor polynomials. You need a calculator that has a CAS (computer Algebra System)
Yes Casio sells calculators with CAS: The FX-Algebra 2.0 and 1.0, the FX-9860GPLUS/GII SD, the GRAPH85 or 80 and the Graph 100+. You also have the CLASSPAD Series 300PLUS and 330.
TI and HP also have CAS calculators.

Texas Instruments
TI 89 /Titanium, Voyage 200PLT, TI92PLUS (discontinued), TI Inspire CAS.

HP 48G/G+/GX, HP40G, HP49G/G+ and the top of the line HP50G

How do i calculate limits on my Casio fx-115es? Ex. lim x->3 for (x2'-0)/x-3

Sorry, but you cannot calculate limits of functions with this calculator. It does not have a Computer `Algebra System (CAS). For that you need a graphing calculator with CAS: Casio ClassPad 300, 300PLUS, 330, HP 48 GII, HP49 G/ G+, HP 50G, TI-NSPIRE CAS, TI89 Titanium, TI 92/92PLUS, TI Voyage 200 PLT. It is still a very good scientific (non graphing) calculator
However, you can calculate numerical derivatives, and numerical integrals, solve linear and non-linear equations.

Even though this post does meet your expectations, do not let that prevent you from rating it.
