    it would be on the bottom where is reset button is, yours might not have one.

    when you push reset does it cycle the unit and comes back to the welcome screen or doesn't even cycle?

    have you upgraded the firmware?

    STEP 1

    Connect your TomTom to your computer via USB and open up your Windows
    Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some
    other drive letter).

    Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.

    You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.

    STEP 2

    Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.

    STEP 3

    Copy the Yellow Folders from the backup you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.

    STEP 4

    Open TomTom Home

    Click on Upate Now.

    Install the latest update onto your TomTom.

    Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.

    Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.

    Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.

    need to format the unit and put the folders back, this is the only thing that i know other than sending it back.

Coby MP-610 MP3 Player froze up wont turn off or connect to my computer

If it just froze up, there's a reset button at the back/bottom, I used a staple if a paperclip isnt available. The reset button did nothing to solve my problem of only getting a screen showing "COBY" but maybe it'll help you.

No video on my Gateway fpd2275w Monitor

First things first a quick check list:
1 Make sure monitor plugged in.
2 Turn on monitor. If there are words and instructions displayed then there is power in monitor. Green light for power next to buttons, etc. If there is no warnings or alerts on the screen. Then we have a power issue to the monitor. Or your back light has gone out preventing you from seeing welcome screen alerts etc.
3. If there is welcome screen alerts etc. then check your plug to the PC. If its connected, then your settings on your PC for the monitor are not configured. If you have two of the same plugs on your computer for the monitor. switch them and roobot. Let me knows how this worked out. Thanks.

Blue Screen of Death, but not quite

hard drive is a main failure concern, check to ensure power supply is plugged in. sounds like you have a corrupted rgistry file-locate OS for that unit and hit ''repair'', should solve the problem.
